Very successful, I'd say! You definitely don't look like the Red Hat Society. You look gorgeous!

I absolutely love that outfit on you! One of my all-time favorites, I'd say.

Tira said...

Very successful! Better than those purple tights. Me no likey. But this is fab. I love your pops of color.

Stacy London always inspires me to wear red and purple- but I just haven't figured out the right combo yet. Yours is great! LOVE that red bag. It's fabulous, I am a purse collector and I haven't seen one like that! I wonder what brand it is....

Rosemary West said...

A great outfit - the colors really pop.

Kevin said...

Beautiful sexy skirt! I love the lace!

How on EARTH do you make that work so well? I am envious :D I tried purple scoop neck knit and red scarf myself yesterday and it just didn't work for me. *le sigh* Must be that stunning icy blonde hair ... wow ... TY for an inspiring blog though, found it about two weeks ago and it's spurred me to try some much more adventurous looks. And a belated try at the $20 challenge which proved to be tons of fun!

Judy said...

How pretty. 'love the bag and shoes. I did not comment when you first shared the shoe clips. 'very creative!

Shopaholic said...

Okay, I'm trying purple and red this week, you have convinced me... lovely.

mbbored said...

I think this combination works better...maybe because I'm less than crazy about patterned tights. I do love purple and red though, which are the main colors in my living room.

ShopKim said...

Your really pulled it off this time! It looks great!

estrella said...

I like it best this time, especially when wearing the scarf. You're a genius :)

Court said...

If only those obnoxious red-hat ladies dressed this stylishly, I might want to be one of them!

Jess said...

I think they look great together! I like this better than your previous attempt because of the way the colors are paired together- a whole lot of red with a purple backdrop, and the colors are actually layered as opposed to both just being there.

Sheen V said...

Love the scarf & shoes - they really compliment the outfit!

Kari said...

Oooh, this one is superb! I think it helps to have red be a "smaller" part of the outfit via accessories so it doesn't look quite as color-blocky. And frankly - as much as I hate to say "redheads shouldn't wear X color" - I do like this combination better on you as a blonde.

Your hair looks so cute and rocker-ish. I love it!
