How I Style: Red Faux Patent Leather

Red patent leather is a bold move. And I’m all about being bold, in anything I do. It’s all in or nothing at all. Why half-ass something when you can just try your best and hope for success? (Gosh, I sound like a cheesy motivational ad.)

Red is my power color. I feel like a winner in red. It brings out the fierce & fearless side of me and I love that. Sometimes, I need to rely on my outfit to make me feel good. You can relate, right?

This outfit needed balance. The zippered faux patent leather skirt was sexy so I wanted to downplay the sexiness with a crisp white button-up to make it look more sophisticated. I added the cabbie hat to make the look suitable for daytime and paired it with my vintage Louis Vuitton reporter bag.

I shot this with a friend way back in October of 2018 and I remember freezing my butt off because we went to the Strip really early in the morning so we wouldn’t catch the crowds in the shot. Anything for the shot, right?

I’ve made some incredible memories at the Bellagio fountain. Reminiscing about it actually makes me cry. The fun times, the love, the heartbreak, how my heart used to flutter.,, This fountain seems to be the place I go when I want to reminisce. And that’s exactly what was going through my mind when I shot this set. My expression emulated the gratefulness I felt every time I remembered the memories made at this fountain. I’m grateful for the good and the bad. Every memory, every moment is an experience I cherish.
