experimenting with extremes. reds.

if color dictates our mood, it was certainly working today.
i felt a mix of emotions from frustration to anger
to even feeling a bit scared.
it all started this morning on the drive to work...
i almost hit a car, twice, which left me feeling a bit scared since my driver's license was expired.
then, someone at work took their frustrations out on me
via an email.
this sent my angry blood pressure soaring.
finally, it took me all of five minutes to get my driver's license renewed, but the drive took my entire lunch hour and more because of an accident.
a lil bit frustrating.

i reached for my red denims today, but in my monday morning rush, i didn't have time to mix things up.
so, i grabbed everything in varying shades of red and
hoped for the best.
after feeling like i did today, though,
i may have to invest in a pair of yellow denims.

at the request of a reader, i've added the linky tool below.
feel free to share your extreme outfit, old or new.


yes, i'm wearing silly bandz.

  1. Oh, I love when you wear shades of one color! Like when you did that thing of pinks and reds on your nails. Loved it! Sorry you had a crazy day full of extreme emotions though. =/ Have a glass of wine and blog a bit... maybe that will mellow you out. =)

  2. You poor thing...I hope the rest of the day/week are less eventful for you!

    I'd never thing to go head to toe in such a bright color, but it looks fantastic. I'm kind of thinking I'd like to give it a go with blue, maybe...

  8. I love how you added a yellow watch to the red mix. It feels just right! Funny, I just posted my green outfit and was talking about green and how it gets a bad rep in the u.s. for expressions like "green with envy" and "green-eyed monster"...

  12. The outfit looks great on you. I have never tried wearing all the same color in various shades. You have pulled this off quite well.
    I wonder in wearing shades of blue would bring a calm day. As the color blue is a calm color.

  28. Still look fab gurl!Glad you're okay.:) Sometimes things work not the way we want it to be. I love red..not that it's my fave color but I think it's very dominant and looks appealing to my eye.

  29. I dig wearing red, but I don't think it's a colour I'd have the guts to wear head to toe. You pull it off really well, but such a bummer about the bad day.

    ReplyDelete
  30. GAH! sorry to hear about that frustrating day of yours. :( If clothes really are outward expressions of people's emotions, maybe wear some green or blue next time for calm times :) You still look stunning though! And perhaps the only person I know who can pull off that much red!

  40. Sorry about the rough day. Loving the all red get-up though. The brown platforms anchor the outfit and the yellow watch at a pop of different color. I linked up with my extreme florals.
