MY OBESSION

BY LINDA LE BROCK

You may have noticed I’m a little ‘red’ focused lately. Like a bull to a matador’s cape I am obsessively drawn to anything red right now. Apparently by the feedback on my Diane von Furstenberg post (note her fabulous red frock,) I am not alone. My dear friend and style goddess, Annie, commented after seeing the post, she has been searching for a red shift dress since seeing a photo of Pippa wearing one at Wimbledon. And with pitch-perfect style advice offers, “I want one in linen for summer and one in jersey for fall/winter. Not fire engine red, but a red with some depth and richness. The summer one can almost approach tomato but the fall/winter must be deep.”

So in the manner of Julie Andrews in Sound of Music…these are a few of my favorite things…in red:

    Also, nothing makes jeans and a white t-shirt look as cool as red shoes! Flats or heels.

    Yes yes! LOVE red shoes with jeans. I’ve seen the cutest red flats this year.

    Linda–I feel honored to be quoted. I’m blushing (red, of course).

    By the way, I think I must have those gorgeous red shoes.

    I must have the red jersey dress. I picture it with some fun hose or my new Via Spiga black boots. I am obsessed with red nail polish………must have the Midnight Red.
