Happy New Year everyone! Does everyone have any new year resolutions? I know we all want to be skinnier and prettier and have more shoes. Did I guess right? So I decided to start the year with an Asian tradition – red for prosperity. Red accessories transform an outfit from being good to great. Whether it is a scarlet bag, shoes or even jewelery, these accessories will become your necessities in 2010.
Alexander McQueen satin knuckle clutch- oozing with rock’n’roll glamour. Having this bag is like wearing jewelry! It wound be an impressive self-defensive weapon and you wouldn’t lose it. I like the pearly eyes of the skull.
Sam Deman red fringed suede boots- very Pocahontas-like! You may think that this is just another ‘suede boot’, but look closer: there is a cascading fringe and fringing at the heel of the boot! This boot takes luxe-boho to the next level.
Lanvin multi-strand lacquered necklace: Alber Elbaz never makes anything that I don’t love. I adore his lady-like approach to designing. He reworks the traditional classic looks with an interesting twist. Take this 3-tiered necklace -it looks like a modern heirloom! You will wow the crowd with this beauty.
Escada patent calfskin bag- a great carry-all for all ages. I like the detachable shoulder strap and the gold buckle lock. It works the functionality and Anti-It-Bag status very well. I can see Alexa Chung carrying one of these.
Valentino couture patent leather pumps. WOW! These peeptoes are the most demure and glamorous ones I’ve seen in a long time. Long live the red king. A pair of red shoes or a red dress from Valentino is a must-have as he is the man who revolutionized the LRD- the long red dress.
3.1 Phillip Lim red leather purse – edgy and practical. This is the perfect companion in a tote or just clutch it. It is large enough to fit your passport and other important luggage, so bring it with you when you fly.
Happy New Year everyone! Start the year with red!
