Modern Red, Take Two

cropped trench

I always seem to veer towards this punchy orange-red hue (formerly called "modern red" by J.Crew) whenever the weather turns warm and this spring has been no exception. I easily own enough pieces now in this color to do Carmen Sandiego proud - in fact I think I'm just one big reddish hat away from this year's Halloween costume ... though does anyone even still remember good ole bad girl Carmen?

  1. Ah, sorry, I have no idea who she is! I like your Modern Red, though - the colour, the shape - perfect! It's funny but I do this too with certain colours - cobalt blue, olive green, kelly green, crimson red, plum... but it's not a bad thing, is it, since it means we can mix and match just about everything we own! ;)

    1. Ah no, that means I'm getting old, doesn't it? "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?" I guess I was the only one who saw that when I was little, bahahaa.

  3. Gorgeous color! This is my kind of red. Punchy and vibrant, but also very flattering.

  4. Ooh, I love the cropped look of the jacket! Yes, I remember Carmen Sandiego! Red trench coat with a red hat! I actually dressed like her for halloween at the workplace one year, haha! Still hands-down my favorite character to dress for halloween! :D

  6. Great outfit! Yes I loved Carmen Sandiego! Although I only had a computer game of it where you had to catch criminals and one time I actually caught Carmen, it was amazing!
