Red accents

Hi everyone. 
I hope you are having a great weekend. I promised to add more OOTD posts and to be honest, I really enjoy preparing them. Let me know if you want it to become a regular weekend thing :)
I based the outfit around the red Smile Tote bag*  from
It is a bargain-only £25! Obviously, I wish I could own the Celine Smile Tote, but it ain't gonna happen :)
The bag I received is gorgeous, spacious and very well made! I fell in love with it! I like to wear matching shoes and handbag, so I went for my favourite red ankle boots (ebay) with gold studded detail.


I wasn't sure if I should wear a red top, but I think that it looks really nice with a black jacket and a grey maxi skirt. Another must have for me is a statement necklace and I went for the biggest one in my collection. I got it on sale ages ago for £5. I think it is from Miss Selfridge. It is stunning! For some reason, I woke up really early today, before everybody else, so I used the time to curl my hair :) It always makes me feel so much better! Red lippie, gold and brown smokey eye and I am ready to go :) What do you think about this outfit? Have I managed to balance out the red with other colours?
