Red is a neutral. Duh.

When in doubt, I always accessorize with red. And it always makes the outfit.

I love your petticoat. Red used to be my go-to accessory color but it's slowly being replaced by yellow.

i totally agree with you! red goes with anything and i think it looks super sexy on brunettes ;) speaking of accessorizing with red...my red stud earrings and red Bakelite necklace are ready and eagerly awaiting me to put them on tomorrow morning!

Yes. Leapord is also a neutral and suddenly for me sometimes orange or coral. I believe coral is red's cheeky cousin. Lovely photos as always.

You look fabulous Solanah. And you're right, red always make the outfit :) I also like how the hat is very simple and not very girly because it balances the whole outfit.

i wear red as a neutral, too! :P

Ooh I love it all! And that's a great principle - I often do the same. I've been looking for a slim red belt for ages though - they never seem to come up (except expensively, new, on ebay). Also red Mary Janes. And come to think of it, a decent crinoline. Can I just have your whole outfit?

By the way I love this green wall you've found for your new "photo spot" - very effective.

haha! I've come to use red as a neutral in my wardrobe too--it goes with just about everything; plus you can't beat the "pop" it adds to an outfit. Love this whole look--especially that pretty dress! :)

Red is a great color. I don't have much red, but one of my friends wears red every day. I think I've only seen her sans-red two times in the past 6 years.
