Editor's Diary: Forever Red

Forever Red

Dear Diary,

Red is a color that indicates love, passion and sex appeal in a way that to me many other shades just cannot replicate. Even though it is such a bold tint it can still look quite reserved and as my sister and fellow Editor would say “clean.” At an early age I fell in love with the city of Paris and even had the opportunity to vacation there growing up. I will never forget getting on the metro and seeing a young teen girl in a red overall skirt with a big ol’ floppy hat. She looked amazing and like a magnet her fashions had me glued to her.

During my usual interwebs browsing I found a red Parisian skirt for only $10! It reminded of that very metro ride so today’s outfit is completely built around it. I added a Balmain cropped top (why not show a little skin, this is Cali for goodness sake), Michael Kors handbag, finger ring, River Island hat and ankle boots by Emilio Pucci. I heart fragrance so I threw in a body mist that can be found at Bath and Body Works. Remember fashion can be influenced by art, nature and even fond memories. Have fun with your closet and I hope that you enjoy your weekend.

Love Always,

Arianne xoxoxo
