The Hint Of A Spark

the association of the red-and-green color pairing to christmas is one that has always delighted me, but often i find myself frustrated at its effects on sartorial perceptions and decisions. red and green can create some really breathtaking outfit combinations — i should know; i try to create a new one at least once every week — and yet i get anxious just thinking about the possibility of going out into the world clad in what will likely be perceived as a christmas-themed look. although i try not to care (and i hardly ever do) about what others think or say about my outfits, it can get irritating trying to dodge comment after comment of random people who seem to think it is their duty to voice out their opinion on what you are wearing.
but i am not one to give up, and the discovery of mint-and-red has rendered me ecstatic to the point of no return. i have found a new favorite color combination; one that fulfills my insatiable thirst for the outfit pairing that frightens even the bravest of souls. add to that a delicious side of navy and i’m a goner.
