Two things I never usually wear… red lipstick and red shoes… but sometimes you have to break old habits.

My closest friends and family know I rarely wear red, not because I don’t love it, I just feel I can’t pull it off, but I have been seeing shades of red popping up everywhere lately, via insta or online, and so I decided to give it a go.

I had my eye on the Valentino red Mary Janes, but a) I can’t find them in that shade anywhere and b) I can’t justify the pricetag right now, so when I saw these beauties in the shop for under £20 I scooped them up quickly.

I feel this look is an all over classic old school hollywood, I with the red lips, high waisted jeans, jacket over the shoulder and the wavey hair, the only thing I guess you could say is out of place is the basket.

I picked this up back in September, see this post to find out more, and I didn’t feel I had had enough wear out of it. So I was racking my brains trying to think of when I could use it and this outfit sprung to mind, it fits in perfectly with the colour scheme, so yes it is possible to use a basket in Autumn… result!

Let me know your thoughts on the whole red shoe look and just red in general for this fall!!!
