Red-Carpet Ready: What Does that Mean to You?

Are You Red-Carpet Ready?

Imagine that every time you leave the house, there is a red carpet waiting and everyone you meet will be interested in what you are wearing and will closely examine the way you have out your outfit together. And imagine that though you have no control about the viciousness that sometimes ensues (in whispers, of course) on the red carpet, you do have the responsibility for deciding what your best look is going to be and then, just stepping bravely onto the red.

If all of that were true (and I believe it is), what would "red-carpet ready" mean to you? As spring approaches, what do you need to do to be ready to put your best foot forward each time you leave the house?

What do you need to do about what's hanging in your closet right now?

How might you spruce up your wardrobe for spring in ways that are fresh and new, but also true to your season? Check out a couple of my ideas on Thursday!

My Son's Red-Carpet Poses

Recently, my son had a birthday and part of the celebration extravaganza included time at Barnes & Noble and lunch at The Olive Garden. He loves to pose for pictures, as if he is on an imaginary red carpet. :)

Having trouble deciding which season you are? I'd be happy to help!

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. I've always been the kind of woman who strives to be 'red carpet ready' whenever she leaves the house.

    I guess it's because I spent years in the theatre and if I dared to go out in sweats and messy hair, SOMEONE was bound to stop me to talk about my latest show.

    Now it's such a habit that I don't even go out to the mail box without a full face of makeup on lol!

    Love your son's poses *grins*

    1. That is SO admirable!! I am beginning to want that for myself as well. I read the advice somewhere that you should always be presentable and then, you'll never be in the position of being caught wishing you were.

      Good for you! And thanks!! My son's microphone is always on and he's ever-ready for his close-up. :)

  2. Heehee! Looks like your son was having a blast in front of the camera! Watch out Jeanine! He's a cutie!!! :D

    Unfortunately, I am not always red carpet ready. That's an area I could work on a little more I suppose... :)

    1. Hi B.! Thanks!! Yes, he is a cutie and a charmer, so you're right. And he did, indeed, posing for those pics. :)

      Well, I am working on that, too! There are some days, the tired mama days, when it's all too easy to stay comfy.
