Woman in red


It had to happen sooner or later: last week I decided that red was not so bad after all...
( nothing against the colour,  but I haven't  been wearing it often in my life)


So, why not give it an ( exaggerate ) try??


Not an ordinary red skirt,  but a long, wide, asymmetric one which surely doesn't go unnoticed! 


Big flowers as earrings in a pale shade of yellow
( recently bought )

L'Autre Chose 
 
And neutral colour low heel sandals.


It was a hot morning in the city 


and I was looking for some corner in the  shade ...


Which didn't turned out to be a good idea for having good quality photos...


Do you happen to wear an extraordinarily exaggerate piece of clothing now and then?

  1. I love that red skirt. It's so unique, so different and I love the fullness. The fabric must be quite firm to hold shape so well. The shoes you've chosen give the outfit an almost 50s vibe, a touch of Sophia Loren!

    1. This is what I consider a great comment!!

      My skirt is from cotton and yes, it is quite firm ...the skirt also has pleats at the sides ( not visible in the photos ) Which help to hold the shape!

  2. I love this outfit on you, Dan. The top fits beautifully and the skirt is beautiful and dramatic. I am glad to see that it is sunny somewhere in this world! NYC has been very cool and damp recently. Oh well, I am sure that I will be complaining soon that it is too hot!

    1. To be honest, I had to adjust the quality of some photos since they were a bit too dark!!

  5. Beautiful look! I love the skirt and the shirt. I love the stamping of the shirt, and the original design of the skirt. Beautiful outfit, with bag, shoes and beautiful earrings. A Dan a little different, but very beautiful.

  7. I adore this skirt, it is a change and I like it. I love to wear a full skirt now and then, it is so roomy and dramatic. You look very chic as always, the printed tee and simple sandal is perfect with this look! Yes to red!

    1. A full skirt looks feminine, doesn't it? Mine is very dramatic too. I confess that I was feeling a princess wearing it!!

  13. Oh my goodness Dan, I adore this skirt! It looks fabulous on you. Love the wideness and the asymmetric hemline. That shirt is very good with it. The sandals are a nice mix between flats and heels. Elegant and I bet you will wear them often. The gorgeous earrings should not go unmentioned. Love them. All in all a top ten outfit. And your photos are good. You should indeed stand in the shadow or have a tunnel (or similar) behind you to shoot a good photo in bright sunlight.

  18. Sorry this is rather late but I really love you in your statement red skirt and the top and shoes are the perfect pairings. You know me I love unusual shapes in my clothing choices. Your photos came our rather well , full sun or shade , both rather tricky to get the photos.
