Wild for Red

Outfit: Skirt (DIY), Shirt (Thrifted), Bag (Garage sale), Belt (Garage Sale)

     My obsession with the colour red continues, as is evident through this second style post since my new-found love. It all started with red lipstick and who knows when and where it will end! 
    Every year a more up-scale neighborhood in my city throws a giant garage sale. There are endless streets of yard sales, hot dog and lemonade stands littered everywhere, and countless crowds of people. We started early so we could get at the good stuff before it was gone. I was on the hunt for all things red of course! I got some pretty spectacular items. I found a small collection of old books and upon seeing them the nerd could not be happier! One of them is The World's Famous Orations, published in 1901! It has always been a dream of mine to have a room in my home with floor to ceiling bookshelves (I think this is called a library, haha). This room also has dark leather armchairs and a mahogany wood desk situated in the middle of the room- presidential style. So needless to say, I have already started my book collection for that room I one day will have. I have over 350 books, so I'm on the right track! 
     This garage sale is also where I stumbled upon this red belt, an accessory I have not been able to stop wearing, for a mere fifty cents. No mistype there, best fifty cents I have ever spent! 

Until we meet again,

  1. Red is one of my favorite colors to wear. It's just so pretty, classic, and bold. And it looks good on almost anyone! That giant garage sale sounds AWESOME. We have something similar at our local church, but it's not on all the streets and there's no food stands. :\

  2. super cute! you should keep the obsession with red because it looks amazing on you!


  3. I can't believe you got that belt for 50 cents?! That's amazing! I love how you brightened up this outfit with all the red accents. It truly looks lovely :)
