OOTD 1/17/2012-"Red Hot" Theme Week - Day 1

It's no surprise that I love J Crew's orangey-red that comes in a variety of different names....vibrant flame, cerise, modern red and poppy, just to name a few.

So, I thought it might be fun to do a theme week entitled, "Red Hot".  It's good to have fun with your clothes and the pop of red will be a bright spot on these cool winter days.

Day 1...Since I stayed in my pajamas yesterday, I'll give you a double dose of red today.  :o)

J Crew Honeycomb Cable Sweater in Poppy - Size XS
J Crew Factory Stripe Perfect Shirt in Blue - Size S
J Crew Double Serge Pencil Skirt in Vibrant Flame - Size 4
J Crew Trap Glass Necklace 
J Crew Juliet Tortoise Patent Pumps

BTW...Just one week!  New and improved pics are on the way!  Woohoo!


  1. i am wearing red too!
    i cant wait to see all your outfits this week.

  2. Ina...since, you're off and running in red, you want to join me in wearing red the rest of the week? :o)
    Going to check your blog now.

  3. Love these together -- so cheery!

  4. Thanks M! I walked into the office this am and I was greated by..."Red and orange? Really?" I tell ya...what gives people the right to be so rude?!

  5. just found you off pinterest and I adore your style!! how does that pencil skirt from Jcrew run size wise?

  6. I *like* the red and orange together! Cute!!

  7. Oh and I've been wearing red this week too!

  8. Shady Lady...I've heard about pininterest. I need to check it out but I don't need another obsession! :o) These pencil skirts run tts. I am a 4 or 6 in J Crew skirts. I have two of these double serge skirts (vibrant flame and heather acorn) and both are a 4. Hope that helps!

    Thanks TR! Mmmwah!
    You gonna finish out the week with me? :o)

  9. That's funny ... I'm scared of pininterest too since I already spend what seems like too much time on polyvore and blogging. And yes, I'm gonna keep on with the red this week, 3 days straight thus far. And tartan too since I wore the cafe capri in wool plaid today. ;)

  10. Yay! Ooo, I bet that was cute! I really like those tartan cafe capris...You killed two birds with one stone! :o)

  11. Andrea, I'm looking for the Honeycomb sweater everywhere and I can't find any xs or small to try on and decide about sizes...I see you bought the xs, and you are layering it very well ;-) I bought some JC goodies from you already, and we wear almost same sizes, should I order xs? How the small fits on you? Its FS and I don't want to stuck with wrong sizes :-(

    1. Hey Andrea! I tried both sizes and liked the fit of the xs better. The fit was a bit boxy so the xs got rid of some of the extra material in the waist area. Also, after wearing the material has stretched out just a bit. I think you should be fine with the xs. Check out my review here Hope this helps and that you're able to snag one!
