Claude Montana, Being a scarlet woman

Back in the 80s, I had a red blazer with a zipper front, which I wore endlessly and loved a lot, even though it was from the local market.

So last week when I found this gorgeous Claude Montana vintage 80s wool blazer for only £2.50 at the boot sale, it brought back memories of my first red one:



This one fits like a glove and now its been dry cleaned is ready to wear-I can't wait!!
Red is so on trend too-check out this article by the Daily Mail showing different ways of bringing scarlet into your wardrobe.

Will you be a scarlet woman this season?

this is a cool jacket,i've always had a love hate with red. I love it on others but i never really like it on me, but now my hair is no longer red i may give it a whirl

What a great colour! Amazing find as usual. I love red but unfortunately it does not suit my skin. I try to combine it with other colours thought so it's not too bright. Ciao. A.

The blazer is lovely, what a bargin! I wont be doing red this season but totally have it lined up as my colour for A/W, I already picked up a red blouse and am keeping an eye out for a red dress x

What a great find! I'd love to see you wear it, I bet it looks perfect on you. Yes, I'll definitely be a scarlet woman this season - in fact, I love red every season.

Red is my favourite colour (equal with pink) and I am ashamed to say I have three red jackets.

Nice! I can't wait to see you wear it! I have a red winter coat, maybe I should find a nice pair of red boots to match! Thanks for the tip on (red). Deb

I like the last three blazers/jackets you've shown - (the whites & the red). I'm not sure I'll be bringing much scarlet into my summer wardrobe. I do have one blouse I can wear, now that I think of it--kind of a "buffered" red color....

What a great find! The colour, cut and shape will look fabulous on you.
I must have had the same zipper blazer as you back in the 80's.
