Red is one of my favorite colors and I’m pleased to see that designers used it in their Fall/Winter collections. I’m usually drawn to deep scarlet red generally but sometimes tomato red is a nice burst of color.

I’d love to have an occasion to wear long red leather gloves. These are a beautiful color – I think they’d look great with a black gown.

For a real life splurge, a red lipstick might have to do. I like the way this color looks in the photos but I’m afraid it’d turn fuschia on me.
