Red looks good on everyone; however, for some reason it was lacking in my wardrobe. Therefore, I have been on a mission to bring more red into my looks. With that goal in mind, I stumbled upon this red handbag at Alexander McQueen while shopping in L.A. I had to have it! The fact that it was near the top of my "to buy" list only further sealed the deal.
Keeping a "to buy" list, in addition to being fun to put together, goes a long way towards eliminating those purchases you regret later. Any time I have made a purchase based on the assumption that I needed something new for a wedding, special night out, etc., the excitement of that purchase was fleeting and usually gone after that first wear. Having a list helps me prioritize those things that I truly want from those that may be only a passing desire or impulse. If you do not already do so, try making a list reflecting what it is you really want and stick to it. I guarantee that you will find that there is something so satisfying about crossing an item off your list. Of course, once something is crossed off, you get to add something new to the list, which is fun.
Back to this look...effortless, casual, and on trend. This bandana took the look to another level adding a pop of red while providing a little unexpected neck flare. Of course, it also happens to coordinate with my new bag so that is a plus!
