Outfit: The Lady in Red

For once I've actually got a bit of a style direction for 2017 in mind; the styles I want to wear, the colors I want to focus on gathering, and so on. Everything syncing up in my wardrobe and photography so that while I might never have a capsule wardrobe, at least there is a cohesive feel to my closet and life. Of course, not on my list of things to wear in the new year and colors to focus on, was show-stopping red coats and bold black tulle skirts. I want to go in a more natural, earthy direction with my wardrobe both in style and colors, but I can never resist a good red dramatic outfit (despite what people say about redheads wearing red!).   

One of my favorite costume-movie moments comes ironically not from a vintage film, but is Eva Green's all red outfit towards the end of Casino Royale when she is dashing through the streets of Venice. You can't take your eyes off her in that scene and for me, watching that film I hardly care where she's going and what she is doing with stolen money--I want to be her in that moment. What could be more glamorous than to be visiting Venice in all red (and being chased by spies?!)? Practicalities impede on fantasy far too often, especially when we travel. It is daunting to throw a dramatic outfit and heels into a tiny suitcase and hope they serve you well in an unfamiliar city, but I can't help but dream of being the lady in red, standing on an empty train platform in drizzling rain with a vintage suitcase and air of mystery about her...



  1. You look absolutely stunning, stunning photography too. And screw what people say about redheads wearing red as girl you are clearly rocking it!

  2. Great post, a very classy look and even if the setting is not Venice it's beautiful and I love it.
    I adore the coat, both the colour and the shape; I have to make a similar one as soon as I have time (it means never :( )
    I am happy that you don't listen to people about redheads: if we listen to all people say, the World would be so boring.

    1. Aw, thank you! It's a charming little station for a children's railroad in the summer, but as soon as I saw it I knew it could be a great spot for photographs! I hope you find the time to do some sewing one of these days! :)

  3. Loving the retro vibe!



  4. What an amazing place to take photos, I love the red

  5. You have been my biggest inspiration out of all the bloggers I've ever come across! Sure I love your cute clothes and your vintage vibes, but what strikes me most about you is that you wear what you want to! You don't care what others have to say- if you want to wear red with your red hair then who cares... You're an inspiration, Rebecca, to us all!

    1. Aw thanks that is so kind of you to say! :) I definitely *try* not to care about what others say, especially when it's about something I love--like red! :)

  6. I absolutely adore your coat - red looks so fabulous on you. But the whole look is wonderful. Vintage-inspired and classic but with a contemporary twist. Your amazing shoes and your stockings also provide a great base for both the dress and the coat. Truly inspirational!

  7. You look amazing! Red definitely looks good on you, but I personally think all colors look good on you! Hope you had a good holiday! Looking forward to reading all of your future posts this year! :)
