 Everyone remembers their very first pair of Doc Martens. Mine were vintage classics in that deep Oxblood wine color (why didn't I get the black or navy again?). Since then a plethora of updated styles have come and go but the originals will stay with us forever. For Autumn/Winter 2011 Dr. Martens have launched a nostalgic #FIRSTANDFOREVER campaign (starring Agyness Deyn), reminding us where all the rough kicking magic began...!

GUCCI's Fall 2011 Chiffon Winner

I just can't get enough of Frida Giannini's stunning gem-hued cross-over front chiffon dresses with cascading bloomed accents for GUCCI's Fall 2011 collection, and apparently neither can anyone else. Heck, redhead singer songwriter Florence Welch ordered one in each color for her most recent North American tour! I therefore dedicate this entire post to the one and only GUCCI chiffon dress....

Fashion's Night Out: September. 8. 2011

Just three years on and Fashion's Night Out continues to be the most exciting fashion event where celebrities, designers, and regular people like you and me get a chance to mingle for the ultimate night of fashion and shopping. From London to New York, the best way to navigate FNO in your city is to choose one specific area that houses your absolute favorite shops/party events. You can always hop the subway to another event location after. What you will need: The official FNO shopping MAP for your city, a cell phone with built in camera, your 'front of the line' game face while you wait in absurdly long lines for a glimpse of your favorite shop, and a large handbag to stash all and any goodies you get your hands on. Oh, and don't miss Target's Pop Up store for an exclusive chance to snap up their Missoni for Target collection which officially debuts September 13!
Just 17 days 'till fashion's best party of the year, and I will see you there!

Keep Calm and Carry On

There comes a time in a busy writer's life when the unimaginable and completely unexpected  happens, and I'm not talking about being nominated for an Outstanding Writing Emmy. Remember on Sex and The City when Carrie's computer crashes and she freaks out because she hadn't backed up her files? Weeeelllll such a scenario happened to me a few days ago..... My laptop died. Suddenly I found myself feeling quite naked and alone, at the will of extremely kind friends and pitying strangers who have since offered me valuable internet time and lots of emotional support. Meanwhile I am crying over the fact that I will not have my weekly RedPoppy Project Runway episode recap for you, and it may further take some days until I get to read and comment on all of your amazing blogs. Have no fear though! I shall continue to write my daily posts even if it means finding an internet connection via the toaster. So thanks for your continued visits to RedPoppy, and I wish everyone a lovely fabulous weekend. PS. Make sure to backup your computer data in your spare time! xo RP

Julianne Moore Bows Us Over

I am loving the always gorgeous redhead Julianne Moore along with the elegant Jason Wu ensemble she wore to The Big Lebowski Blue Ray release party just the other night. I'm a huge fan of the black and ivory/white combination, and just how fabulous is that oversize bow??

Stella Tennant in VOGUE UK September 2011

I find myself having to make a few very important (chuckle) points this morning:1. The regally androgynous Stella Tennant is one of my absolute favorite models who manages to make everything she is featured in look stellar 2. I love everything about this 1970's inspired and dizzyingly patterned editorial photographed by Javier Vallhonrat for British Vogue's September issue, particularly the orange/beige background 3. One of these images should have been the cover of VOGUE UK's September issue!

Color Blocked by Meredith Wendell

Browsing (yep, that's internet window shopping for me) through Net-A-Porter's collection of handbags the other day, I came across this lovely color blocked shoulder bag by New York based Meredith Wendell, and well we clicked right away. I love the school bag feel, the canvas and leather combination, and of course the bright painterly reds and blues...Exclusive via Net-A-Porter
