Taylor Swift’s new album Red comes out tomorrow, which means she’s out and about on a mega promotional blitz (I heard two radio interviews and read at least five articles about her before I’d even finished my coffee this morning). It’s yet to be seen whether her entire press tour will be color coordinated, but she definitely started things off on the right foot with this retro red dress, matching lipstick, understated accessories, and nude heels.

October’s almost over, which means all of that lovely summer color has drained from my face and I’m back to my normal fall/winter skintone of “transluscent pallor.” This is the time of year when I love to wear big, colorful earrings to brighten up my face. These fabulous crimson chandeliers should do the trick. [$60, Neiman Marcus]

Looking to bring some of those gorgeous fall colors into your home? I’m loving these DIY candleholders the crafty mavens over at Martha Stewart came up with. The best part? This project couldn’t be easier: simply collect a sampling of colorful fall leaves and affix to a clear candle holder using spray adhesive. Add a candle with a cozy fall scent (I can’t get enough of this Oregon fir candle from Alchemy) and you’ll be basking in awesome autumn vibes in no time. [Martha Stewart]
One night during our weekend in Nashville, my boyfriend Nick and I staggered back to our hotel in the rain after eating a huge meal. We immediately collapsed on the bed, and Nick reached for the remote. Nick has a habit of watching the most random TV shows whenever we’re staying in a hotel, and this time he didn’t disappoint: he flipped through the channels and finally settled on a half-over rerun of “The Good Wife.” “Nick, come on!” I objected, “We’ve never even seen a full episode of this show!” But by the time I had finished my sentence I’d been sucked into the legal drama, and 20 minutes later we were like, “Cool! Let’s watch this all the time!”
