Red, Black and Vivian once again.

Black+Red has been done a million times before. Clearly this isn't the most creative of outfits - light turtleneck, cardigan, dressy pants, booties and a statement necklace - but it is what I wore to work during a Holiday that celebrates Albania. I just had a half (work) day that day. Since Albania's Colors are Red+Black I was representing as was Vivian. She has definitely had her time on the blog so far in 2015 (examples 1 and 2). We have been able to co-ordinate somehow, each time, also. I love it when that happens. Do you have a daughter? Do you match outfits with her or any of your children sometimes?
I had to start off with this photo because Vivian interrupted my vain time (lol) to show me her new book which she loves. She loves books with puzzles, like this one. She is just too cute and insisting on that photo on your left.
Dark Red 3/4-Sleeve Cardigan w/ Silver Disco-ball Buttons: White House Black Market (very similar by J. Crew), (similar V-neck option, by J.Crew, on sale, love this), (similar, best deal).
Black, Thin Jersey-Stretch, Long-Sleeve Turtleneck: Express (very similar by Ralph Lauren, love this), (very similar), (long-sleeve, ribbed option by VS, best deal, love this).
*Note* I have been a customer of The Limited for over a decade and I love their pants. That is why I recommended several options from them, linked above.
Silver Stretchy & Magenta Faux Alligator Skinny Belt: White House Black Market (similar by Ralph Lauren, best deal, love this), (similar in patent leather by 7 for all Mankind, love this), (wide belt option, great deal).
Black, Classic, Plastic "Wayfarer" Sunglasses: Ray Ban (identical), (tortoise version by Ray Ban, love these), (similar by Marc Jacobs, great deal, love these).
Large, Red Leather Handbag w/ Gold Hardware: Michael Kors (same), (very similar), (similar 1), (similar 2).

Vivian's Outfit:
Black w/ White+Red, Fair Isle Cardigan w/ Hoodie: Babies R' Us.
Red, Velvet, Ribbed Leggings: Jumping Beans (Kohl's).
Purple+Orange Sneakers: Target (Christmas Gift from My Mom).

P.S. Linking up with Ash, Claire, Jen, Jolynne, Kym, Lauren, Meg, Meghan and Natalie.
