Albania's Independence in Red and Black!!

Let me start this post today by wishing all Albanians in the world and My Home Country of Albania, A Very Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Prosperous and Beautiful Birthday and may we celebrate 10000 more anniversaries like this!
(This is our Flag, simple but beautiful, I think.)
(Google even dedicated a Doodle for us in Our Honor, Today. I am not sure if you can see it from USA if you go to, but it is definitely visible in Europe.)
Even-though we are one of the oldest countries in the world, we have been through a lot, including too many wars. Only on November 28th 1912, one of the Heroes of Our Country named Ismail Qemali (or known to the people as Ismail Bej Vlora), signed the Declaration of Independence and Waived Our Red & Black Flag for the world to see, over a balcony, surrounded by other leaders and overlooking the thousands of people gathered for this event, in Vlora - Albania. So the city of Vlora is known for one of our country's biggest historic events up to date. But today the whole country of Albania, plus Kosovo is celebrating with us!!
And in honor of my country and our colors, I am wearing Red & Black today (as if I would wear any other colors). You will get to see today's outfit some days later. I will also take a ton of photos today of the decorations and festivities going on, over here and have a special post with those photos. Tirana - the capital of Albania (where I live) - and Vlora are doing the most activities this entire week and are also decorated the most, in Red & Black. There is even a 4-ton cake that has been made for all the people to share and eat! However today I have compiled a few Colages of outfits (20 outfits to be exact) I have worn in Red & Black - this is a Fashion Blog, after all. This happens to be a Favorite Color Combination of mine, and even better if I feel and look patriotic anytime I pair these colors together. Plus Red is My Ultimate Most Favorite Color. Which one(s) are your favorite outfits from the bunch?
