Outfit: Pavlov


Red has been my favorite color to wear since I was a teenager but my rather ridiculous collection of red dresses began later in my own Pavlovian-attempt a brainwashing. I was into a guy whose favorite color was red and decided to collect as much red clothing as possible so that every time he saw me I'd be wearing red and I'd start being one of his favorites. It was less about conditioning and more about being too shy to function. I've often tried to get my clothes to speak for me. As my rather dismal dating history might indicate I was unsuccessful in the romantic aspect, but I have no regrets since I still have and wear every dress I acquired in those brief infatuated months...Anyway, I'm still a sucker for red clothes and this skirt is quite lovely addition to the collection. I envisioned wearing it with a more delicate blouse, but on a rainy day I opted for comfort instead in the form of one of my softest sweaters and worn-in boots.

Haha! I did the same thing with yellow in attempt to capture a boy's attention in high school. I too was unsuccessful but it all worked out for the better as he grew up to be a funeral home salesman.

You really suit red. It's one of those colours that I think looks really nice on others but I don't like it on me (I prefer wearing blue, in fact most of my wardrobe is blue) I love your jumper too; it looks so cosy!

That is so funny! It's strange the things we do sometimes when we're infatuated like that. I basically learned to cook so that I could bring treats in to work that the vegan guy I had a crush on would eat them and fall in love with me. I did not work.
I love your outfit, and the location that you chose to shoot it.

Hahah your story made me laugh! I think we've all done something ridiculous like that at one point or another. On the bright side - you really do look great in red!

You look darling, as always! I love that Betsey Johnson bag.

@Aly Rose, it's a walking bridge. I prefer not to say my exact locations publicly for my own safety.
