Here is Lustful Red in the sun (with my hand perched on my Civic's steering wheel) and in the shade (with my hand clutching a book about The Madonna of Humility [don't ask me about it because I haven't read the book yet so I have no idea what I'm talking about]). As you can see, the sun really brings out its orange tones while the shade brings out the blue. In reality it's a cherry red creme. A really, really nice cherry red creme. The formula was okay. A little thin, actually. I needed three coats for this opacity.
Fun fact: while I was taking the shade photo I was standing outside the Cleveland Museum of Art (where I intern/have class/live) and one of the art librarians walked by me taking pictures of my hand. As he continued to walk by I took this picture of the print on my dress to show you all, and now he thinks I'm a psycho.
But I couldn't not show you guys this print. When I walked into the art history 101 class for which I'm a TA, one of my friends just looked at me, sighed and said, "Ahhh. Ponies." I like it when my clothing induces contented sighs or squeals of joy. I saw this dress on clearance at Urban Outfitters and scooped it up for $21. I assume it was there because few people are quirky enough to wear stuff like this, but I'm proud to say that this is my fourth article of clothing with all-over horse print. Evidence:
Also another blouse from H&M that has horses with saddles all over it. Haven't had a chance to photograph it. But, there you have it. My wardrobe gets weirder by the day and I love it.
That's it for me today. Who loves red? Who is willing to admit that they love red? It's definitely one of my favorite hues for fall, and Nubar does them well.
Alright, time for me to giddyup!
