Blogger's Do It Better- Lady in Red

Happy Valentine's Day!! I hope it is filled with love and maybe some yummy chocolate.

Pretty Shiny Sparkly is hosting another blogger's challenge and this time around it is all about the color red. Besides some lipstick, nail polish and a pair of socks, red is pretty scarce in my wardrobe. I can count on two fingers the items in my closet that boast the bold shade. So I guess that made this challenge less difficult for me. Hey, a bright side! Red, black and white, such a classic pairing and you just can't go wrong with classic, but to keep it from being a little stale I just couldn't resist one more pencil skirt. You would think I was sick of them after wearing nothing but pencil skirts last week, but this one is just too fun not to get out of the closet. My one and only DvF piece that I got for a steal at a local consignment shop was just what this outfit ordered. Oh, and a little bling-bling didn't hurt!

Are you into holiday color-themed dressing? Would I spot you in pink or red this Valentine's Day?
