lately i've been exploring some collections that i wouldn't normally look at, just to expand my mind and think about different colours and a more refined look. valentino pre-fall was a total "whoah" moment for me- the red!! wow. valentino red pumped up! i especially like the red paired with the red/brown fur coat. zara did some really great faux fur coats for fall that looked surprisingly good. the quality of faux fur has really improved so you don't end up looking like a muppet.

i love the red paired with nude footwear.

this is beautiful. so inspired by colour lately, but nervous about how to incorporate it into my own wardrobe.

i've never been much of a red person (it can go so wrong...not sure why) but i would definitely wear the first two looks.
the mix of texture and tonal reds/orangy brown (first pic) OMG. i love that.

I wouldn't have put the first jacket and red pants together but they look amazing!

i love color as well, but it is quite daunting to try to include it into one's own wardrobe. especially when said wardrobe is dominated by BLACK/GREY/DARK GREEN/etc. very masculine, toned down colors. i've been trying to find pops of yellow, orange, red, etc. Brighter colors are supposed to help motivate and whatnot. loving the red dress/nude boots. beautiful.
