As many of you know, I almost never wear color, let alone red. However, the couple of occasions where I have sported a red piece in a 4 year blogging time span, I only have done so because those particular pieces only look good in that color. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t hate color, I like color, just not on me. My aversion to wearing anything outside the neutral tone spectrum started since I was a teenager and continued during university, where I was often mocked due to it with a couple of idiots calling me ‘Morticia’ because of  my predilection for wearing head-to-toe black (and no, I was never a goth).

Color is just…well, too loud for me. I prefer the understated, the simple, and the quiet to the loud and over-the-top. I prefer going back to the purity of form and color, which is also why my style is mostly minimal. I always felt attracted to understated elegance and quiet sophistication and color feels to take that away instead of adding something to the equation. However, I am really liking red lipstick, which I have never ever worn in my entire life, mostly due to the fact that I’ve never found the right shade for my thin lips without making them look even thinner. That was until Givenchy sent me this perfect shade some months back and now I am considering wearing red lipstick more often.

Speaking of pieces that only look good in red, this Realisation Par top is one of those sexy numbers that I feel take me from the awkward geeky person I am to feeling like a bombshell (not that I think I look like one, but I do like how it looks). Few brands can boast of such a transformative power, where all the pieces are made to make you feel sexy and feminine to the max without looking vulgar due to the vintage vibe in each of them.

Do you also like Realisation Par? How about wearing color? Let me know in the comments below.

Wishing you all a great Sunday. x

  1. Despite not being the biggest fan of colour, you look incredible in this red! The lipstick definitely is a gorgeous add, and I believe it would incredible with your all black outfits also. I have always been a fan of non-colours, and I believe they aren’t too much of a distraction and allow your personality to shine through, however in recent months, I’ve also given coloured clothing a chance. Great post and I enjoyed reading <3

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet comment, love (and for all your comments in general, which I enjoy reading). I’ll definitely give my all black outfits that pop of red with lipstick and take your advice. x
