i have been gravitating towards the color red lately and feel like it’s coming in a close second to my favorite color, yellow. maybe it’s because the color reminds me of christmas, and that in and of itself is enough of a reason right there, but the color is slowly taking over my closet (and home! can’t wait to show you how we pulled red into our kitchen!)
i bought this red military coat several months ago after seeing it online and have waited patiently for the weather to turn so i could start wearing it pretty much every day. the coat reminds me of the toy soldiers in the nutcracker’s battle scene where they conquer the mouse king and once again, enough of a christmas reference for me to be like, LOVE! i’m also the biggest sucker for that scene in radio city’s christmas spectacular where the rockettes stand in a line dressed as toy soldiers and fall down so slowly in single file with those freaking adorable red circles glued to their cheeks. i guess this coat is helping me live out my toy solider dreams as i walk the streets of new york and that is good enough for me.
for those interested, wearing this red military coat, with this white nora fedora hat, denim high-rise jeans and similar booties here. wearing this black cap-sleeve bodysuit underneath and lipstick is by stila in the color beso.
