Seeing Red

February 19, 2018

I’ve headed east to chilly New York for two weeks, and I’m seeing red!

If you haven’t picked it up from social media yet, I’m here (conveniently during NYFW) consulting for one of my favorite brands for their Apple-esque beauty products, Glossier

I promise this isn’t an homage to Glossier, but rather an homage to the feeling of being in an empowered environment and being able to take on everything.

The power of a staple pump suddenly came back into my peripheral – maybe it’s my new office responsibilities or maybe it’s growing out of a 4-year long bend of comfortable chunky shoe options. 

Tamera Mellon sent me these red power pumps, and in my opinion, nothing goes with red quite like red.

And on the topic of empowerment, Tamara co-founded the house of Jimmy Choo and has taken the mastery of what she’s learned to really hone in a staple silhouette within her own brand. Now all I want to wear are skinny heels with monochromatic tights. Wouldn’t life feel so much better if we could all dress as if we were in an editorial? But to take it a notch above, how much better if we can take the feeling of a good shoe and wear it in our daily lives? I think wearing a heel to work (you can tell that I’ve strangely romanticized corporate life after working for myself for so long) suddenly reminded me how I should feel when I’m in work mode.

Overall takeaway: instead of putting on your thinking cap, throw on a pair of heels. And if you’re really ambitious, dress like you’re in an editorial for a day. Things will happen.

  1. First, thank you for the information, and your point of view.
    I can enjoy this blog and especially this particular blog
    post. At this stage, I feel I fritter away much too much time over the internet, scanning rubbish,
    effectively. This is a refreshing differ from what I’ve known. Still, I feel that reading
    other’s good ideas is a valuable investiture of at minimum some of my
    weekly measure of time in my timetable. It’s just
    like looking throughout the junk heap to find the gold. As well as, whatever illustration performs best for
    you. Still, sitting in front of the laptop is probably as harmful to you as
    tobacco use and fried chips.

  2. This is so inspiring! I always wear boring clothes to work lol I guess it’s time to give it a little twist although I do find thin heels a bit uncomfortable… i’ll try it anyway haha Always nice to read your blog rach!

  3. I love this so much! Such good quality content, it made me smile. The photos were unreal! Brigitte is amazing at what she does. Good job (as always)!!!
