28. RED wasn't my color UNTIL..

I didnt wear any bright colors like red until I was like 18 years old! Growing up in India and being dark is not the most asthetically appealing looking color. I always believed others when they told me that I should stick to light colors because they go well with my skin tone.

So I stayed away from RED! AND HOT PINK and green and purple (you know the brightest colors!)


We moved overseas!

Now, I love how I dress and expirement lots with bright colors! If you look in my closet, I mostly have COLORS and I love it!

Anywho, I just felt like sharing some of my insecurities turning into securities now :) It was rainy today but we decided to cheer myself with some red and a scarf, worked pretty good! Very comfy to say the least.

Hope you are having good week!


  1. Well, I'm glad you started wearing it because it looks just beautiful on you! I think it goes really well with your dark skin and hair!

  2. OOH! I love this colour on you! You look so great and vibrant with this jacket. :)


  3. They are so wrong.  Bright colors look awesome on you!  I say, the bolder the better. You only live once :).

  4. you look adorable in that pink sweater! and as the rest of the outfit is black, it only did favors for the brightness of the jacket! love the look!

    You look wonderful in the red (and all bright colors) - so wearing them is such a good plan!

  6. I've had an aversion to red my whole life...but that's because I'm so pale!  You look fabulous in red!  Especially that shade.  It's almost a pinky red:)

  7. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WAYYYYYYYYYYY!!! RED IS DEFINITELY YOUR COLOR!!! Now following :) You look soooo amazing!! So happy that I found your blog!!


  8. Hey Nav, way to go on the challenge...I'm only on number 21! 

    And yes, red really is your colour. I grew up with the same ridiculous suggestions about what dark skinned people should wear and I would always tell my (very fair skinned sisters) that dark brown is the colour that Indian girls are supposed to be!

  9. You were definitely meant to wear bold colors!  Love the red on you.  (My favorite color!)

  10. Red really suits you.  I love the fact that you are shining vividly in that shade juxtaposed against the miserable grey sky behind you!

  11. That is a super great sweater, and I'm glad you've embraced the bright colors because they seriously look great on you! How interesting that people said otherwise.


  12. I think you pull off red really well!  Love that scarf too.
