The One With All the Red

Hello. Hi. If you're here, it means I've piqued your interest somehow. Thank you for stopping by and letting me show you pretty things.

I love the monochromatic vibe of this first outfit I have chosen to show you; I think it would be perfect for a Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving) dinner. As my friend Kate said "If you spill wine on it, no one will notice!" Kate gets me. The dress is also pretty forgiving if you've indulged in a few too many heapings (fine, bowls) of mashed potatoes like I plan to. The other thing I love about this dress (besides the color and its convenient likeness to red wine) is that you can wear it so many different ways: over pants like I chose to here, with leggings or tights, or even bare legs with cute flats, slip-ons or sexy heels. And the color pairings are nearly endless. Top it with a soft pink coat and you're in color-blocking heaven. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with friends, family, football and food - my favorite things in life!
