The Girl in Red ~ Drapped Faux Wrap Dress & Orange Blazer

by Kéla Walker

By now it should be clear that I’m a girl that loves Kolor. Either one of these pieces – the red dress or the orange jacket- can hold their own but I figured why wear just one when I can rock BOTH

The red dress was an ode to the organization I serve, Girls Inc. of NYC – a non profit that encourages the growth and development of young girls. I mentor and serve on the JR board and after months of tireless work , the fundraiser we worked so hard on came to fruition.  Because red is the signature kolor of the organization I figured it was a good idea to wear it to the event. Never mind the fact that I ended up being the only Jr Board member wearing red- it was a good time had by all. Check out the event recap here.
Instead of numbing the dress with with a dark jacket or cover up, I figured why not pair it with an equally brilliant color blazer. If you look quickly it almost looks like the dress and jacket are the same kolor but clearly they are not.


I’m not going to lie, I was a little reluctant at first to rock the two bold kolors together but I rather like the combo.
Don’t you?
