Glamour from Head to Toe!

imageAlthough so many opportunities are available to us redheads, sometimes we find ourselves limited other ways. While a redheaded female will almost always get a second glance in a mall, we are often intimidated by some fabulous fashion colors and trends that make us feel left out. I have made it pretty clear that I am out & about, a force to be reckoned with, and am beyond happy to show off my burnt-auburn tresses. Not to mention, I am VERY thrilled when I find an item in a color that kicks my look up a MAJOR notch. But I am often afraid to go bold or go home. Just call me “Nancy Neutral”. *Sigh*

It is not easy to be a sassy fashionista that is afraid of bold colors. If I could live my life like the Sunday paper– tons to say, decorated in black, white & grey– I would. But I can’t. It’s not feasible for a fashion and cosmetic writer to live in drib, drab & neutral colors all the time. Once in a while, I have got to have some pop and pizzazz in my look. So s-l-o-w-l-y I have been introducing colors that play nice with me in the sandbox with my red locks without making me look like a freak.

Recently, while blog researching, I came across these GORGEOUS Marc Fisher Joey Peep Toe Pumps in the clearance section of a fave local retailer. What made them so special and unique? THE COLORS! This wasn’t a Plain Jane, single colored shoe that looked like all the others I own. It was a bold pattern in purple, lime green and poppy. KA-POW!!! They. Were. Bold! I was a little scared about how “out there” they really were, but I loved them. Now…could I assemble an outfit with them that still flattered my red hair and personal style? The shoes were too gorg not to try!

I bought the shoes and headed to my favorite designer-discount retailer. With my new purchase in one hand, and a credit card in the other, I was bound to find at least one neon-green shirt that could make these shoes a jazzy outfit. And I did. In fact I found two! A nice 3/4 sleeve long tee and a sequined top to dress up or down. When outfits were put together with other pieces from my wardrobe, I stepped back in amazement as I ROCKED that neon lime green color in HIGH style. It brought out the brightness in my red hair and gave me something bold that I wasn’t afraid to wear. Usually, this would be way out of my comfort zone, but I liked how I felt in it. It was definitely rockstar-worthy for Sassy!

I challenge you. Step out of your comfort zone. Try colors that you may think look bad on you, but can actually give you a new runway stunning look. Ask for honest opinions. And rock your look with shades and styles that will keep you looking even MORE fab than you already are!
