I'm not sure how it happened, but I've noticed a shift in my wardrobe. Minor changes, but they are signifying a gradual change. Typically, I shy away from red, a color that intimidates me. Bold, unapologetic and direct, I've been one to select anything other than crimson or scarlet, for fear of inviting too much attention. Perhaps this seems comical coming from someone who frequently wears 3+ patterns in a "power clashing" fashion (as friends have so hilariously defined it), but I really am very shy when it comes to red. In keeping with renewal and a fresh start, it seems like the perfect time to adventure into new directions, both sartorially and in life. Cherry red seemed like the perfect mate to an Aritzia piece that miraculously got consigned at my work. I've been pining for this sweater since I saw this post back in 2010. The sweetly macabre motif encapsulates my tendency to simultaneously be bitingly sarcastic while wearing what is considered "cutesy" clothing. Good things come to those who wait...
