it's in the details :: Red Valentino Fall 2013

"Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.  That, or a kick-ass red lipstick." -- Gwenyth Paltrow

Look at all the embroidery!  And those giant red velvet roses!  I'm in love! RED which stands for Romantic Eccentric Dress and is Valentino's trademark hue, is the sister line to the Valentino fashion house.  Granted, this middle-aged gal prefers skirts that are a tad longer, say to just above the knees, that little black suit is swoon worthy.

As we are only 48 days until Valentine's Day, I thought I'd also share this fab review of Ladies in Red by Monica Corcoran featuring Nancy Reagan (and her Reagan Red) as well as Jessica Rabbit, my favorite femme fatale.
