Outfit Details:
red blazer – thrifted
polka dotted peplum bustier top – thrifted
tulle skirt – Target kid’s section (borrowed from Kim)
scarf – borrowed from Bobby
floral tights – courtesy of Accessorize
vintage over the knee boots – gift from my momlipstick – MAC Russian Red

Well of course Miku and I color coordinate – what did you expect? Actually, that was just a happy accident. Miku’s harness and leash are red, which is actually my favorite color to wear. I know I have been wearing a lot of neutrals and subdued hues lately but red is one of those instant pick-me-ups whether in a garment or lipstick. My great-grandpa’s favorite color was red – his bedroom was decorated in deep red velvet, which always seemed very regal to me. He was/is my hero, so perhaps that is the reason it makes me so happy.

You know what else makes me happy? Miku. Duh, can’t you tell? Even though Bobby and I have been exceptionally busy lately, we have made sure to reserve morning dates at the dog park to keep our pup happy and spend a little time together. Bobby and I are very excited for  snow days – the dog park we frequent has a large hill that is reserved for sledding. Miku is more excited about winter parkas and snow boots.

p.s.You can see more at Bobby’s blog.

    Everything about this outfit makes me want to shop, Keiko.

    Reading your blog is inspiring, infectious, and also very, very difficult for those of us who are on shopping bans!

    You look ravishing in this golden light. The sheer and polka dots together with the red. Brillz.

    1) Your outfit is a gorgeous Christmas present full of lace and bows in all the right places and wrapped up in a bright red for a festively final touch.

    2) Vogue called. They want their picture of the city chick with the dog back for their "December in the City" spread.

    Random question –

    How does Bobby feel about your lipstick? Just wondering because personally, I love to wear it but
    my boyfriend doesn't (he says it's because he can't kiss me without getting it on him) UGH! What's a girl to do!

    Is there really such a thing as "kiss-proof" lipstick?

  15. Melanie's Randomness says: November 29, 20109:16 pm

    I LOVE your outfit!! I love the lace top & the tulle skirt & the tights!! Oh and your red coat is so cute!! =)

  46. Ally says: November 30, 20108:39 am

    RED! You look amazing. (So do Bobby and Miku, as always. Why do animals and boys have it so easy?)

    For some reason I'd unconsciously removed red from my wardrobe, but when I found a gorgeous vintage dress in red with little white polka-dots, I needed to have it. The overwhelming response was that I look great in red – so now I'm working to fill my wardrobe up with it!

  47. jj says: November 30, 20108:42 am
