Rainy Day

Whenever I wear this color combination, I think of my dance teacher from elementary and high school. Everything she owned was red, black and white. Even her house was painted in this color scheme, and she had black hardwood floors imported from a special retailer in order to maintain her creative vision. While I have never considered myself a fan of red, I do love a pop of color in an outfit. This coat is once example, and I particularly like it due to its brass buttons and collar. And the coat is a much needed item especially since San Francisco has officially entered its rainy season. An umbrella is safely packed away in my purse whenever I go out in case there are unexpected showers.

Red is a great accent color, but with the holidays just around the corner, I'm considering a knock out red dress for parties! What do you think? Is red too much for the holidays?
