Fall Outfit (2): Scarlet Maple

Red made a big come back this Fall/Winter, a tone of designers revisited this classic hue. From Dolce & Gabbana to Givenchy, from Zac Posen to Yigal Azrouel, the passionate scarlet graced everyone.

Being a fan of color, I’ve always loved red, but I never liked the idea of wearing red from head-to-toe. It is just too loud for my taste. How about you? ;-)

Sweater: Brookshire, scarf: Hermès, skirt: COS, gloves: Röckl, shoes: Masion Martin Margiela.

    You know how to color with those pencils :)
    I am a sucker for red too, but have been a bit bored with pairing red with black/white prints. This carre really draws a different picture for the red!

    Agree with upstairs, all I can think of red is pairing with black or grey, classic but kinda bored of it. Your colorful pencils really made a difference here^_^

    Hi purse, many thanks my dear! Hope you’ve had a great time. I am so happy that we are bag twins now. ;-)

    jibjab & bobcat, thank you gals. Red goes pretty well with beige, navy and animal prints too. Maybe you could give a try! ^^

    Wow, this is so chic! You got me started on the prints and now you’re making me like the pleated skirt more and more :P

    Fay, cozy chunky knits are just perfect for Fall. Will let you know if I see something nice. ^^

    birkingal, thank you. I know you are a jeans gal but hey, maybe you can give skirts a chance too. :-)

    yeah, I’m totally a jeans or dress girl. I’ll have you know I don’t own a single skirt.

    birkingal, it’s interesting how everyone’s taste differs. Because I, on the contrary, can’t live without skirts. lol~~

    Hi Venkar,I fully agree with Morgan’s comments. It is a coommn mistake for young scientists to think that they will be more successful at landing grants if they are under the wing of a Godfather . This is simply not true. Well-established scientists can attract a lot of funding mostly because they are good at writing grants and, having funding already, can spend much of their time trying to get more.The truth is that writing grant proposals is a skill that needs to be learned, and the advice given by Morgan should be heeded. Writing clearly and concisely in English is not an inborn capability, especially for foreign-born scientists (I am one, but I was lucky to have married a native speaker who is also a stickler for grammar). So your energy may be better spent learning to write well than finding well-connected PIs, unless you can get them to write the proposals themselves
