Sure, we’re in summer and many will be celebrating the beautiful neon colors that tend to take over the season. We get it, but let us not neglect the gorgeous hues of ruby, royal, rosy red that will take your summer nights up a few sultry notches! And of course, bring strong doses of femininity that come along with such a powerful color! Perfect for blooming into our most confident selves 😉

Ya know, when we were conceptualizing our June In Bloom photo-shoot at the pristine Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, we took a lot of inspiration from a few Dolce and Gabbana ads like this…

Because does it get any hotter??? I don’t think so! Give me a Gal with decadence in her presence and painted red nails and lips… and you’ll get a gal that knows she’s all woman and ready to breathe fire! I mean look at that ad… she can totally take you lol Just kidding! But really, just because it’s summer don’t just stick with the lights, you can play with royal colors too! So paint yourself in some red and feel a little retro maybe…

We took a great pair of skinny dark denim, patent black peep toe pumps, and painted PolishedN in reds through her Equipment silk top from Saks ($100), red Nars lip, and red gemstone necklace from Macys which we used as a headband! YUP… a necklace as a headband! Post to come soon on that… but in the meantime, get your Queen of hearts on and paint yourself in rosie red! Feel confident and BLOOM this JUNE! And while your at it, add a little cheetah print, even if it’s through your shades like we did for the Colester… why not! You’re on a roll ROSIE!


Whether you wanted to Splurge or Save, here are two great options!
