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.

Red cocktail dress in bathtub

A red cocktail dress is perhaps the very picture of publicity, while a bathtub is most private and personal, and folded within the realms of home and personal comfort. Cocktail dresses are meant to be seen, red ones certainly so, and in our bathtubs we hide and step away from the world with ourselves, only the water to soothe us. The juxtaposition of the two clashing worlds is what makes this image striking, the public face meeting he private face in a dramatically drenched scene. The bright red cocktail dress and the bright red lips on a made up face, usually meant to call attention, here soaking in anonymous privacy away from prying eyes, lost in water and wanton relaxation. Not to mention that floating in a bathtub wearing a red cocktail dress must be quite the outlandish personal experience, with many stories to tell.
