Lady in Red

Dress, Nanette Lepore.  Shoes, Forever 21.

Red is my favorite color (black and white don't count as colors, or so I've been told), but I've really only used it as an accent in my wardrobe instead of making it the main event.  All of that changed once I found this Nanette Lepore dress!  It's the exact same shade as my lipstick, which is all that it took to convince me to buy it.  

Also, it's a faux-wrap dress!  I strongly believe that wrap dresses are the most flattering garments ever made- anything that makes my chest look bigger and my waist look smaller is a no-brainer in my book.  I love the flattering ruching along the bustline leading to the bow.  It makes a simply cut dress more intriguing!

I added cute leopard-print pumps to give the outfit a funky touch.

I wore the dress while walking along the Jersey Shore boardwalk...I was a little overdressed and a lot out of place.  Not your usual guido garb!  I loved this "Lady Luck Casino" sign and couldn't pass up the chance to take a photo underneath.  All the credit goes to my momma for scouting this cool location and taking these pictures!!

I didn't add many accessories- just pearl earrings.  Keeping it simple keeps the focus on me instead of the clothes!  I think that's the point of getting dressed- finding clothes that fit so well that you get noticed instead of the outfit.  I love this dress because people aren't going to say, "That ruching is really flattering!", they're going to say, "Your waist looks so tiny!".   It's all about me, which is how I like it!


  1. Love it!!! Beautiful!! You and the dress! Your mother did a great job with the backdrops...good eye!

  2. You look amezing! I love your hair!
