Winter Fun in a Red Dress

January 5, 2017


Red is a color that represents energy, passion, and love. It is a color of strength and power. Whew! That is quite a powerful definition. But hey, I just want to have fun and wear red but somehow I am feeling this definition today. This color just brings out the inner emotions.

So I bought this dress while back from express and they are now marking it down from $88 to $30. This price is quite a steal.  I love the flattering shape of this dress as it gives that illusion of a narrow waist and has a slimming effect. That’s totally a win right there!

You can easily take any neutral colored coat to pair with something like this to really pop the color where you want it.  I chose this camel colored trench coat because well of course for one it’s COLD here, but also I love how it pops this dress and it looks great even without putting my arms through the sleeves.

I completed this look with suede stilettos. These shoes are one of my faves because the color matches my skin tone and almost makes my heels disappear. Why would I want that? Well, if you’re a little on the shorter side like me then this is a great trick to make your legs look longer. This particular style is no longer available but I found one very similar in the details below.

I hope you find color and fun during the gloomy winter days.

 Let me leave you with this quote:

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
