Kelli's got a very thoughtful and important post on her blog about the decision for young ladies to go to college or not. I, on the other hand, am going to be silly and blog about a skirt -- a RED skirt. Stacy and Clinton are probably somewhere moaning over my choice of cheap and red, but here goes:

I usually don't wear bright red, but this skirt called my name from the racks of Wal-Mart clothing. Since it obviously didn't cost much and since it is made in the shape that is most flattering for my figure and since it called my name rather loudly, I succumbed to a bit of holiday madness and said what could be more feminine and festive than a RED skirt.

Usually, red wears me rather than me wearing it. However, since this RED is in the skirt I can pair it with a color that is more flattering to my skin.

I have a lovely friend who wears red as her signature color. I think she's actually considered not wearing so much red, but people so identify her with the color that they gift her with purses, scarves, lipsticks, etc., in her special red.

Pink is more my style, with green becoming a fast favorite, as well. But, once in a while, a woman just needs a RED skirt.

This made me smile, because I've been regretting for a while that I got rid of a nice red skirt I'd hade for ages. It looked so fun with green for Christmas, and it was a year-round weight so it paired with blue for Memorial Day and 4th of July!

It just shows you can wear clothes that cover you up but still look colourful and vibrant!

Ooh, Elizabeth, I LOVE RED! I especially would love red in a skirt, AND I love that your friend has red as her signature color. Man, I want a signature color! :o) What a fun post and perfect for the holiday wardrobe!

Hi all,

I'm glad you got some enjoyment out of my fun with red experiment. I'm really having fun with the skirt. I planned to wear another dress to an out of town wedding, but when I got to our hotel I remembered I had not fixed the bodice to fit me properly. So, I was happy that I had brought along the red skirt, along with with a black draped blouse and a black jacket. It made a perfect last minute substitute.
