I'm not usually one to run toward a bright Red skirt. I'll say it. Red is not my favorite color. (sorry, Red). I hope no one takes offense to this statement but I always associate Red with older, more distinguished women. My Mom likes Red. My Mother-In-law likes Red. I don't think my best girlfriends even own anything Red. See how this perception is formed? I even feel like the word deserves to be capitalized because of its boldness. But as I was sifting through the sale rack at J.Crew I came across this darling skirt with a slight paperbag waist and thought I'd give it a try. For 20 dollars, why not? And you know what? I like Red. Maybe it's because I'm older and more distinguished. Or maybe it's because I took a chance on a color that I've ignored for too many years. Hello, Red. Hope to see you again soon.

  2. That's funny I never thought of red in that way. Maybe it's a particular shade. Come to think of it (although I love it) I don't really own anything red, except for lipstick of course...hmmm, maybe it's time to change my approach. Love your skirt!
