{guest post} bring on the red!

Another one of my favorite lawyer/fashion bloggers, Neda, is here today!  Neda's blog, Peony Park, features gorgeously delightful inspiration.  I'm so glad to have connected with Neda and thrilled that she's here sharing some red hot goodies with you all.

Welcome Neda!

Hello, Lili & Mae readers! This is Neda from Peony Park, and it's a pleasure to be here! Lovely Mae is such an inspiration and her beautiful blog reflects her elegant style. My post today was actually inspired by Mae's pretty red blouse.

Let's talk about the beautiful, vibrant, sultry, passionate, stunning color red! I believe that red is really having a moment. I know we've seen pieces of red in seasons past, but I don't recall the last time we had so many examples of vibrant red, the red that makes a statement and lingers in the mind long after it makes its appearance. And, what better time to embrace the very essence of red than in December? Here are some of my favorite ways to incorporate red into your world...
 




1. Beauty~  Red nails via classic Chanel colors or a vibrant red lipstick. Red looks good on everyone. You just need to find your perfect shade.

2. The Classic Red Dress~ It's impossible not to feel amazing in a beautiful red dress. Two of my current favorites are from Peter Pilotto and Tibi.
3. Accessories~ Try the faux fur trend with a red collar or invest in red jewelry...red and gold always make a stunning combination.
4. Handbags and Clutches~ everyone should have one red clutch or sharp red bag. It's the easiest "pick me up" for any outfit.
5. Asymmetrical blouses~ I'm in love with unique shapes this season, especially for evening. This Vionnet top is a work of art.
6. Blazers~ I loved Mae's post about blazers...a red one would really make a striking statement with jeans.
7. Red Flowers~ the ultimate expression of love...pack the red dahlias and roses together and make it even more grand and spectacular!
 

I hope this inspires you to pick up that red lipstick or to slip on that red dress...enjoy and celebrate in red, and you're guaranteed to feel special!

Thanks again for having me, Mae!!
Happy Holidays, everyone!
