Red dresses and Indian saris in the UK

I’m infatuated enough with red colour fashions as it is, and when I come across something as exotic looking as this, I am even more in love. This window of red Indian saris and traditional Indian dresses, all in red, is mind-blowing. The bold colour, the elegant drapery, all seem out of another world. I’ve seen women wearing saris before, on one or two occasions, and have looked it up enough on the internet to want to try these out one day. Like a great dinner dress, I assume carrying one of these off requires a certain amount of confidence and pose from the wearer. Would love to give it a shot one day. Perhaps I need to track down some helpful Indian neighbours, or stalk old Indian college acquaintances on Facebook and ask for Indian fashion advice.

Red dyed hair with a green fascinator

Maybe I’m biased but I love red hair. There are those of us who are born red-headed and the very few who actually take on the colour red using hair-dyes. Either way, I think it is a striking and fascinating hair colour. I found this picture to be even more intriguing because not only does the model’s hair seem to be dyed red, but she is also sporting an eclectic set of fashions and accessories.

I quite like the dark blue satin dress she’s wearing which appears to be quite classical in its cut with a knotted collar. This fits in nicely with the fascinator in her hair which consists of a white rose motif surrounded by petals of peacock feather print. The green contrasts nicely, both in colour and style with the red hair and the simple lip ring adorning her pierced lower lip. All in all, a fascinating contrast of styles.

Red leggings and glasses

This is quite the classic look. A black turtle-neck sweater dress is never out of style, not are white sports shoes or red leggings. The strange kitty cat print on the top is the only thing that makes this outfit completely timeless. On the other hand it does make it quite unique. The cat has one blue and one red eye too, which I can’t complain about. Mix that with the black geek glasses and it makes for quite the outfit. Red leggings are really quite a good accent to an otherwise monochrome outfit. Red black and white will always be a fashionable combination.

Lots of red shoes on grass

A girl can never have too many shoes, it would seem, and at least a few of us can never have too many red shoes. For those of us who are lovers of red shoes, this photograph is a virtual pictorial paradise. This is quite the collection of crimson footwear, including a strappy stiletto, several open toed slip-ons, shapely heeled shoes, a red leather moccasin, a red converse running shoe, and my personal favourite, a heeled red leather boot. Any shoe lover would be quite satisfied with this collection and any red shoe fan would be quite over the moon about it. Our congratulations and respect to the original owner. Never has a more fashionable replacement of red autumn leaves laid out on grass been conceived.

Retro electric red wall clock

There was a time when everything electric was new and modern. There was also a time when everything plastic was a new and modern miracle. You can imagine that at the time this red electric wall clock was made, both electric and plastic meant something special and modern to the people reading the time on it. After centuries of mechanical time-pieces made of wood and metal, hewn by human hands, the idea of a brightly coloured, plastic moulded clock with modern design and typography and a minimal aesthetic must have been quite the revolutionary departure from the norm. While this particular red clock by General Electric was probably not one of those earliest of electric wall clocks, you can see what a symbol of the new it could have been, with it’s electrical connection, the clean sans serif typography and the safe knowledge that it would never have to be wound to keep it going.
