Feminine Differential - Playing With Red


I love red and it is not a color you see in two many non-female looks. The exception maybe a Kansas City Chiefs Jersey. I had a red Austin Reed Suit Jacket back in my professional days with two matching skirts; one knee length (concretive) the other shorter. I loved that suit. Today's look is casual and its inspiration started with the red Toms Espadrille wedge shoes. 

For those shoe fanatics like us, I ask the question to Google, "What is the difference between heels and wedges?" 

Jerseys - Kansas City Chiefs
The primary difference between wedges and heels is the soles on each style of shoe. With wedge heels, you’ll get continuous, solid, wedge-shaped outsoles that are elevated at the heel and taper down to a somewhat flat toe. On the other hand, high heels are also raised at the back, but the heel portion is separate from the sole underneath the toe.  

Wedges fall into the high heel shoe category because they technically have raised heels. That being said, they’re also a category of their own. 
 (Great shoe discussion at VIONIC)

The shoes are Amazon's TOMS Women's Classic Espadrille Wedge Sandal  and have a great look and are comfortable. The pants Amazon's  LOVER BRAND FASHION High Rise-Waisted Colored Jeans Pants. The top is Lascana Loose Cut Shoulder Tie Detail Top. It has a loose fit that also can be worn off-the-shoulder.

Enjoy - Red wine optional.

  1. I love red too! My favorite dress is a red one I got from Mango with long sleeves and a square neckline. I'm just not sure the red wine is optional...lol.


  2. No red but loved my blue Austin Reed suit Paula G
