Outfit Of The Day – Red Alert


My body has been going through a bit of a shock since I got back from Russia; after all I came from a 30C heat into a freezing Joburg that has been having a cold front. My skin immediately starting acting out along with the rest of my body which started screaming “Take me back to summer now!”. So I am finding myself wrapping up into several layers of clothes to survive the cold. 

It’s true what they say, “One woman’s loss is another woman’s gain”. This doesn’t only apply when it comes to men, ladies! My friend Oksana purchased this coat from Guess about 3 years ago, but after a few outings with it, she decided that it just wasn’t for her. After all red is a bright colour and this style is not for everyone. The coat is absolutely gorgeous and even though she liked it on the rack, it didn’t grow into the heart at home. Oksana was going to take the coat back but I stepped in quick enough and got the coat for myself 😉 It’s been getting a lot of love this winter and I am so happy that Oksana’s loss was my gain. I love this coat!
I went out for coffee with my friend Nazmira yesterday and as we were about to take the photos we spotted the Vida E Caffee right in front of us. How perfect for an all-red outfit! I love the vibe of these pictures- a European like street with a cute little red café behind me. Oh so chic! Thank you for taking the photos Nazmira! Oh and my new Michael Kors handbag is getting its first appearance on the blog. This won’t be its last for a long time, so everybody welcome my Michael! 😉

PS If you are a tech nerd, did you ever play the “Red Alert “game that was very popular about 15 yeas back? 😉 I use to play it with my cousin 🙂
