Love the outfit! Red is one of my favourite colours even when I had a work uniform that was red I didn't mind. My favourite red item has to be a stunning pair if high heels, combining two of my favourite things.

Looking hot my dear.

hahahaha! How did they get there? So funny to see these iconic English landmarks over there. Did you know with mobile phones that the red telephone boxes are in danger of extinction?
Love the red tights and hat!

I love your ode to the red classics :) warms my British heart to no end, and you look so fab. And, you shot the pics outside! So glad the weather is working with you :)

Another curious fact consering phoneboxes: In Norway quite a few people got married in them before it was deemed unchristian a few years back. I don`t get that, it is basically a direct line up! :)

Dear Hottie,

When you asked if this reminded you of anything, I immediately thought, "YES! ME!"

We're twinsies, today.
Because, you know... great minds and all.

I love those old booths, but you are far too stylish to remind me of one! Love the tights, mine are hot pink today but I am liking that color even better.

Casee Marie said...

Loving the red! It's funny, when my sister and I were quite little one Easter our uncle took us on the train (he's a conductor at Grand Central in NYC) and one of the guys he worked with was showing us all the sorts of things people leave on the train - including a bright red umbrella. The guy gave it to my sister and said, "Here, it matches your personality." We never quite figured out what he meant by that!

P.S. Completely loving that jacket, so cute!

Kerry said...

Laura Connell said...

OMG OMG Sharon Jones and the DapKings! I discovered her in a CD shop in Greenwich Village then I saw her LIVE at the Beacon Theatre. So awesome! She is amazing and wonderful. I love her version of "This Land was made for you and me". Have you heard it?

the Citizen Rosebud said...

Thank you all for the sweet comments! I am telling folks, wearing red tights is just about the happiest thing ever. EVERYthing looks good with red tights!
@laura: I love Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and no, haven't heard that song- but I promise you I will by this evening. Thanks!
