To tell you the truth I am not that good in identifying different shades of same colour. Do you know how many shades of red are there? 57 according to Wikipedia. Seriously? At best I can differ just a few. But there is Turkey Red, Venetian Red, Chilli Red and Fire Engine Red. There is Carmin, Crimson, Cardinal, Ruby and Lust. Are there really people who can differ one from another? I wonder. Anyway, I am wearing today two garments in two different shades of red: a knitted mini dress (marsala?) and a no buttons mohair cardigan (berry-red?).
The dress I bought two years ago. Loved simplicity of the silhouette, the colour and the adorning pattern. It is too short to wear with tights so I always pair it with skinnies.
The cardigan is quite old, it has been in my wardrobe for 10 years. I used to wear it with a knitted belt but now I like to style it just like this - hanging open over the dress. It is of 51% mohair and 23% wool, so in spite of the loose pattern it is very warm.
I happened to have a bag in exactly same shades.
Closer look at the accessories
Chunky heart pendant. Don't know what material it is made of but I like how it reflects surroundings. Bought a couple of years ago in London.
Mandala inspired silver earrings with very small blue topaz stones in the middle. Of course, found in Nepal
Garnet flower melchior ring. A gift from my daughters. They managed to save their pocket money to buy this ring as a present for my birthday. So sweet. I often wear it.
