WIW: my version of red and dark brown

Angie told me what to wear to day. Or she gave me the idea of what I could wear; she wasn't at all bossy about it. Thanks for the idea, Angie.

In photo 2, I'm waiving at you, showing off my new gloves from my YLF Secret Santa!

The outfit (worn to work):
dark brown wool cropped pants (made by me); wine ("dark tulip") high-low pullover sweater and matching scarf with big checks in shades of wine and pink (Eileen Fisher); dark brown trouser socks; taupe nubuck booties (Paul Green, Jano); taupe trench (Calvin Klein); taupe shoulder bag (Aunts & Uncles); brown chenille gloves with suede palms (from my YLF Secret Santa).

This is a version of an outfit I wore several weeks ago and called "chocolate and raspberries." I love the flavors and colors together!

    Mm, chocolate and raspberries! They look good on you. I like the bookending of the booties and coat.

    Gorgeous!! The color and texture of the top is just dreamy with those fab drapey pants!

    Just so perfect, Firecracker, because of those wonderful cropped pants and the wine top. Love it whenever we listen to Angie's advice and I also adore your wave in photo 2. Spectacular.

    Such fun pants you made! I was just going to ask you about them. My sewing project today is a sparkeknit shrug to wear over a sleeveless dress for NYE wedding. Cool (oops) WARM outfit!

    Super fab, Princess Rasberries & Chocolate. xo

    Quietgirl, your shrug sounds terrific!

    The dark tulip is a great shade of red for you!

    Those trousers! I haven't made a pair of pants since 9th grade. I just love these.
