Olive with black or grey is my favourite colour combination right now.
I've bought a few things this fall in olive: a cashmere Club Monaco scarf, a cashmere Club Monaco sweater, a sheer long button-up shirt from H&M, and let's not forget about my beloved Balenciaga bag.
I'm slowly working on integrating more colour into my wardrobe, and I'm quite pleased about it. Often bright colours make me feel uncomfortable, like my outfit is yelling "Hey!! Look at me!!! I'm so brighttttt!!!!" But my new colours are subdued and don't make me feel out of place or self-conscious. First I started with the olive, because it really complimented my red hair. I also got a navy cashmere Club Monaco scarf (the same style as the olive one), a brown waffle-knit sweater from Vince, and my camel coat from Zara.
Of course the colour that is buzzing around is red, and I am dying to add something red to my wardrobe (besides my tights and red Repetto flats) Just one item, like a silk blouse, a dress, or even red jeans (though they scare me!) I was skeptical when Ann Demeulemeester showed red on the runway with her signature black, but now I can't get enough, and need some red in my life! Red lipstick is also on my list- I haven't worn it in many years. My old favourite was MAC's Ruby Woo, but now I need something more moisturizing- I'm dying to try out Tom Ford's new lipstick.
