style stories: coral

I mentioned awhile back about a nail place, here in LA, that also has a  while you get your mani. It’s so LA, but also pretty fascinating. She told me the color that suits me the best, and that I should be wearing, is red. I couldn’t help but laugh because I don’t do red. Like in anything! I don’t own one piece of red clothing, I don’t work with the color red, and if you look at my , you won’t even find it in my photos!

I don’t necessarily dislike the color red (unlike purple (sorry purple)), on other people I think it looks great, but it is a strong color that doesn’t jive with my palette. When I told her this she immediately asked me if my mom liked the color red and I said “YES! it is her absolute favorite”! To which she replied that’s why you stay away from it. haha oops. SO basically I have been subconsciously trying not to be like my mother but, in actuality, I am constantly consciously trying to be just like her. So riddle me that?!

Anyway…  and I arrived at a compromise that totally works for me and that is… coral. The orangey-pink sister to red that I can really stand behind is a favorite of mine. And in honor of the new , they invited me to share how I incorporate the hue into my life and the answer is, all-the-heck-over…

I have it in my wardrobe – as you see I am continuing on with my streamlined “perfect for the busy gal/mama” one-piece kind of outfits with this coral jumpsuit. P.S. just give me all the jumpsuits.

I have it in my house – in my favorite rugs, HERE,  and HERE,

I use it on my lips (),

and now I have it in my scent world via the . It’s Fresh and Feminine… blending grapefruit, sweet raspberry and warm sandalwood. My mom’s favorite fruit is raspberries and with Coral as the new red, it makes a wonderful and personal mother’s day gift for her and I may just have to get keep one for myself since it’s what the doctor, I mean astrologer ordered.

  • that color is perfection on you. also, that necklace is so interesting! that would be such a great conversation starter.


  • this was so fascinating! makes me want to fly to LA and find out what my color is :)

  • Wow, that jumpsuit is incredible!
    I always found myself shying away from pinks and reds because I kept hearing that “blondes always look good in red,” but I am definitely steering toward pink and coral this year, for the first time in my life!
    Hopefully this jumpsuit comes back in stock because I think I need it!

  • Also, (this is kinda random but I forgot to mention) I don’t think her red is so off. I remember a few years back when you did your backyard update there were a lot of reddish hues – particularly in the kilim pillows and I think in the fireplace. It stands out so much to me because, as a person who had sworn off of red, for the first time ever I realized red could be lovely and I embraced my reddish brown stained doors from the 1940’s instead of doing what the entire blog universe does – paint it white. So anyway, there’s definitely red peeking through throughout your blog! And thanks for helping me be more open to it!
