dressed up like a lady: Fire Hydrant Red

Aug 4, 2008

Fire Hydrant Red

If it's ever a choice between subtle, smart, unexpected combinations and drag-queen levels of themey matcheyness, I'll take the drag-queen every time. So much so that I'm not satisfied to put on an all red and white outfit, I simply must snack on a stick of red licorice as well. I just can't help myself.


Skirt: H&M
Top: Thrifted
Shoes: On Your Feet
Bag: Vintage via the Getup


I include this photo not just because it features an unabashed model-hunch, but look in the background! Red and white vans!

  1. I'm SOOOO in love with the matchy-ness. I'm a virgo, so I'm compulsive about colors matching...sometimes subliminaly.

    You look adorable.

  2. I totally agree with lydia...
    I love the matchy-ness too. You look totally divine. I really love your style. It's nice to see someone dressed in gorgeous, colourful clothes looking beautiful and healthy rather than sullen and dark and sickly (which a appears to be the current trend!)

  3. Everything about the outfit is so cute, red and white is a beautiful combination. What about red lipstick to add to the fire hydrant look?

    P.S. I tagged you in my blog!

  6. I love your outfit themes and the incorporation of food in it! And, whoa, I've never seen that kind of licorice before... I guess I'm so used to the red vines stuff. Eating too much of it makes my tummy sore.

  14. I always liked the combination of red and white, but how you wear it, makes it even more.. Something, I can't come up the word haha. But let's say you look just really amazing in it. Mostly when I try to combine red and white, I end up with also black in it. I just don't like to much white on me. I think I'm going to try it, after I've seen you wearing it.
