Animal and Red

The combination of red with animal print is one of my favorites.

For our dinner date last night I wore a long sleeve red tee and a three quarter sleeve jacket with side zip pants, all from Talbots. The weather is still much too cold here not to dress in layers.

My jewelry included these small three strand drop gold and topaz earrings which were a gift from Mr. Mickey. They are by Michal Golan, a very talented artist from Israel. I also wore a red bangle with gold embellishments. Gold isn't a good color for me but the gold tones of animal print and the gold tones of the pants called for gold jewelry. 

It was also the perfect time to wear my favorite DVF ponyhair animal print pumps from last year. Everything I have ever owned from the Diane von Furstenberg line has been a pure delight to wear.

Thank you for reading!

Love the shoes. I am looking for COMFY pumps for a wedding...have plantar fascists and often need a wide due to a broken little toe. Any recommendations from you or your readers? Thank you

Nancy: I had a dinner/dance this past winter and finally decided to find a pair of comfy pumps. They are Josef Siebel "Vivian" mary janes, but any of their pumps would be suitable.

Susan, I love your blog! I hope you will do a feature on dressing for warm weather. I find that a challenge. You have taught me so much. At 54, I was "living in the past" with my style and am slowly improving. Thanks.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! Red suits you well and the shoes are marvelous. I like everything I own by DVF; classic, chic pieces.

Love the shoes and the earrings are gorgeous! Red and tan are always a good combo.
