Fending Off the Blues in Red and Black

Between trying to fend off whatever bug is taking down my friends and co-workers, not sleeping much, and stressing about work, I haven't been out with my camera this week, so I'm afraid all I have at the moment is a photo of me from last week.  I will be out this weekend with my camera, looking for other people, I promise.   Anyway, enough about me, and on to the outfit.   I have quite a mix of decades going on, from the "Grease" era neck-scarf (the Sentimentalist), an 80's-ish leather and knit top (Value Village), red jeans from the most recent decade (The Sentimentalist) and my trusty thick-soled docs acquired in the 90's.  Red and black is a colour combination I go to if I'm feeling kind of blah, as it makes me feel like I can handle whatever the day is gonna throw at me.  Other people go for bright colours if they are feeling a bit blue, but for me, give me black with just a bit of bright, and my Docs, of course. 


  1. Yep, red and black is always a great combination. And it's good to mix up eras/looks together, I reckon, makes the whole thing more "you".
    Hope you don't succumb to any bugs, have a good weekend! xx

  2. Kisses from the Big Apple! Love the red & black combo - and your great accessories. The red watch & band really pop and the earrings look fab. Stay healthy!
