Erika said...

I adore the shimmer of the Chris Benz and the Gaspard Yurkievich; though the Fendi is also quite covetable. And who on earth could possibly resist a pair of ruby skinny jeans? Fabulous post! :)

Nothing beats a red dress!

Blair said...

I have to say that I am typically not a red girl--probably because it is not the most flattering color on me but I adore your selections, especially the pieces that lean more towards a berry shade. Have a fabulous weekend CC! xx b

Love that Leger and all the shoes. I got a pair of red suede boots last year but the shade is a little deeper than these..

Little Red said...

Red is one color that I don't have much of. I absolutely love it though! All these pieces are just magnificent. Must go buy more red!

Just gorgeous! I've rediscovered how beautiful red can be recently after buying a couple of red tops at F21 in San Fran.

The Haute-Shopper said...

Such a gorgeous color, but not always easy to pull off. I always thought this was the ultimate color for a diva or siren. Love those Valentino heels. Now if only I had an occasion to wear that Nina Ricci dress to...

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

tiltumaria said...

i LOVE all of these, but 'I don't know why but I just don't feel good in red, it doesn't look good on me or seomthing... or i mean basic red, other shades of red are good for me though ;)

Barbro Andersen said...

Red is a color I wear with confidence! I love it, and try not to wear it too often <3

LAYNE said...

i love love love all shade of red!

Great post! I am drooling over the manolos

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Oooh I love red!! It's so sexy and daring and bold. :)
My favorite way to wear red is to make it an accent to my outfit. For instance, wear a black and white checkered coat in the winter with a pair of striking red gloves. Or, wear a little black dress with a shiny pair of red Jimmy Choo heels...
I really could go on forever. ;)

loft in soho said...

A certain song is playing in my head now. Can you guess what it is? Ah ha. I have been drooling over those Valentinos forever it seems like!!

Girl Japan: April Marie Claire said...

Hi CC.. been thinking of you, how was your summer? Can you believe how hot it is here STILL. UGH!

Red is a favorite color of mine!!!! You have inspired me to post some of the outfits I have bought and new online shops here... thanks for the inspiration.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-such a fabulous selection of red offerings, I really covet some red shoes!! Have a great weekend!

Carrie said...

Simply beautiful!!!! Red is one of my favourite colours so I think this post is fabulous. I think it's a hard colour to pull off and sometimes it depends on what kind of red you wear, but if the shoe fits, it always looks classy and elegant. Great post, Carrie.

B a la Moda said...

Amazing selection of reds!!! Love it. There are beautiful dresses here. I am surprose to see that the Camilla and Marc Tali Frock is exactly like the Eli Tahari one, right?

Style Redux said...

In the runway pics I'm particularly drawn to the red dresses with red tights or red shoes. You'd think that'd be too much red, but it actually looks great.

Maria Confer said...

I have total tunnel vision when it comes to red.

BTW, love the movie Better Off Dead!
