Lady in Red

To break with my traditional palette of navy, grey and ivory, I bought a bright red dress. It was very bright and very red. 

I decided I would get into the festive spirit and so I wore it to a party on Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of one of Big T’s cousins. Great fun!

To go with the red dress, I bought a pair of red shoes, a red lipstick and wore a red necklace I’d bought in Marrakech. Overall the look was very red indeed. The only thing missing were red tights, but that would have been one red too many!

As it turned out, I had more compliments in one evening than I think I’ve ever had. I was approached by total strangers to tell me how much they liked my look and to ask where I had bought my shoes. What compliments, the only problem… they were all ladies of a certain age.

It seemed I had pulled the septuagenarian ladies.   

Old lady in red!
