Monochrome Rouge










While I wait for the leaves to turn red, wishing they would stay that way longer instead of falling away, I decided to wear shades of red myself. This red dress I made earlier this year back in May is going to be great all year round no matter the season and I am so glad I added it to my wardrobe! The shallow open V neckline is nice too, I'll have to use it again on something else.

The brooch I have on here was something I picked up way back in early spring, but red maple leaves really aren't appropriate until fall so now I can finally wear it! It's one of my favorite brooches (don't I always say that? I love brooches!) as it really screams vintage at you when you see it. I kept the rest of my accessories red too, with my red suede belt and heels, and my candy apple red handbag. The handbag has flecks of shimmer in its vinyl that remind me so much of car paint!

Though its finally fall and I can wear my favorite things again, I am feeling really uninspired with my outfits and outfit photos recently. I think I need to shake things up a bit and change up my routine, I hope no one else is as bored as I am with my lack luster posing skills! As always I will look to other bloggers for inspiration in this regard and will have to try out some of their tricks. I also need to stop snacking on all the goodies people bring into work (doughnuts one day, and cookies the next!) as it makes editing photos of myself much harder to take afterwards seeing the results of all those treats. Of course I am going to Disneyland tomorrow, so I'm not cutting out sugary sweets just yet ha! ;)

I hope you all had a lovely autumn equinox, I'm about to get on a plane to California for my whirlwind trip to Disneyland so I am super excited right now!

Dress: Made by me
Belt, Handbag, Brooch & Earrings: Vintage
Shoes: Nine West

  1. That brooch - J'adore! I am actually on the look out for an Autumnal brooch like that. I love all of the different red shades in one look, that's a great alternative to a contrasting accent. I have been feeling a bit blah about my style recently, so that's a nice tip for me to take away from this post x

    1. Thanks Porcelina! The brooch was a lucky Etsy find, I'd love one in every color <3 I have been feeling the blah as well, I hope we both find inspiration soon!

  2. This colour suits you so well, and I love the way you have accessorised the deeper red with the lighter, bright red of your shoes, brooch and belt. That's something I will try too. Kx

  3. Have fun in Disneyland! It will be interesting to see what you wear there - this red outfit is a stunner; will you pack it?

    Work treats are a terror. I've given up on them almost completely. It's not fun having to replace favourite clothes thanks to biscuits.

    1. Sadly I didn't get outfit photos at Disneyland this time (and I just wore a disney tshirt and jeans this time anyway). I wore my brown dress last time and had a lot of fun being dressed up at Disney but this time I went casual ;) and yeah work treats and I are going on an extended break!

  4. This outfit...wow, seriously, wow! It's so incredibly chic, beautifully styled and ideally suited to autumn. Plus, as a huge lover of the colour red, it made my eyes light up like fireworks. Absolutely gorgeous, sweet dear.

    Many hugs & happy travel wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thank you Kate! I do love changing leaves, I feel as if ours have turned so fast this year that I am already afraid they will soon fall too quickly!

  6. Gorgeous ensemble!

    And I would have never guessed you were getting the smallest bit bored or struggling. Blogging is often way more difficult than people think. You're still producing stellar photos and much style inspiration!

    1. Thank you Janey! It means a lot to me that my recent creative block is not noticeable from the outside perspective. Now that fall has really arrived, I am finding more inspiration again thankfully :)
