When Shannon texted me a photo of this door, my mind immediately started putting outfits together. Although outfits were whizzing through my mind, I really struggled coming up with something to wear. I had just promised myself, “NO more shopping.” However, I slyly did not define a specific amount of time for this newly self instigated shopping moratorium in order to give myself an out if I found a perfect piece, umm lets say the next day, but I stuck to it, and dug through my closet.

I decided I needed to wear something red. Why? Well, in the color class I took at work (yes, I took an entire class on color and no, it is not as glamorous as it sounds. Think TONS of chemistry, less Vogue), I was reminded of the color wheel, and what is opposite of blue? Red. I own three red pieces. A blazer, a dress (it is a tailor made dress to look like a Jason Wu dress I saw on Revenge. It turned out o.k.a.y) and this skirt. So I went with the skirt. Ryan did offer his red Lacoste polo, however I politely declined saying, “although retro is in (think Katy Perry spoofing Brittany at the VMAs), I do not need to bring back the ginger in a large polo look that Lindsay Lohan rocked in Mean Girls.” SO I stuck with the skirt. When walking around the house, I did not love the outfit, but I must say, it did photograph well, or Shannon is just that talented! Shannon is just that talented.

But can we go back to this door? I mean, seriously people, isn’t this door amazing? The door is near the entrance to the Nourse Theater, which hosts a variety of performing arts events in the heart of SF. Now I know where my next date night will be and I will be wearing red.
