Tuesdays are for Mood Boards.....Tomato Red

The minute I saw this fabulous skirt I wanted it!! I love the bold graphic colors paired with the feminine ruffle. It reminds me of a doll from Spain that used to lay on my mother's childhood bed in my Grandmother's house. Although,
I have never ever truly designed a red wedding, I figured there always has to be a first time. So here it goes! I really wanted to show that this color palatte could be used not only for a simple country wedding but for a decadent city wedding as well.

A bowl of of berries country wedding celebration in July
This has to be a wedding made for July, as all the berries are in full abundance...The contrast of the red tropical prints with the classic stripes in the Sperry tent and tie add a bit of whimsy. If you are going to go red, why not wear a wedding dress with a print? It is a wedding full of outdoor games like croquet, coffee ice cream topped with berries, picnic baskets and fabulous hats!
