I do like neutrals. I really do.

Red is a neutral, right?

I wish I could see the whole outfit because this snippit is just gorgeous. what's the point of neutrals anyways? they just fade into your skin.

Wow! That is the most amazing plaid ever!

Oh, how cheerful and fun!

Erika said...

Of course red is a neutral! And let's face it, any outfit benefits from a touch of red. Well, maybe not any outfit at all, but you know what I mean! ; )

Casey said...

Yay for red! I, as you know, utterly adore red and think one can't ever wear it too much. ;) lol. Loving that plaid dress you're wearing (what I can see of it! ;)!

As far as I'm concerned, plaid is a neutral! I saw the title of this post and knew I'd love it. Two of my absolute favorites, Bakelite and plaid. I might not be exaggerating if I were to say a good 1/3 to 1/2 of my blouses are plaid.

Beth said...

Pretty colors! And I love Bakelite bracelets!

Q's Daydream said...

Honor said...

Do you pay an arm and a leg for bakelite? THis woman was selling vintage bakelite jewelry for HUNDREDS of dollars a peice, and I had to laugh! Please tell me she was just being greedy!

Crickey, there's a vixen vintage and a vintage vixen. I've been getting very confused...and probably confusing others by misappropriating comments. All sorted now though.

Solanah said...

Misfits vintage, I identify it by rubbing it with my thumb a few seconds and sniffing it. If it smells like formaldehyde, it's bakelite!

Nikita, thank you so much!

Anonymous, actually, one of the reasons I love bakelite is the thrill of the hunt! My most "expensive" bangle is the red one, I got it for $20, and the green one was $15, the rest were all under 50 cents! I have luck finding them at garage sales and such :) But yes, they are worth crazy prices!

Ms Wanda, hehe yes, it's like there's two of us!
