Red Alert: Wearing this dress because why not?

The little Red Dress

Red Dress! It definitely demands attention. SO where could I wear such a pretty thing? Why not anywhere? It got me thinking about saving outfits for the “right occasion”. I would say this outfit is perfect for date night, but why not wear it just because?

I’m not sure how to start this, because I didn’t have a ‘reason” for getting this dress, I just thought it was beautiful. I don’t know about you, but I’m always a little worried about buying clothes online because it seems to be a gamble. You’re either going to get a decent piece of clothing or some atrocity made in a sweatshop somewhere… but, this dress is one of the things I’ve ordered that FAR exceeded my expectations. It’s BEAUTIFUL, and REALLY well made. This dress from Gianni Bini ( too bad it’s no longer available) is amazing quality, the lace detail is very pretty. It’s that very reason I chose simple accessories as there is a lot of detail on this little dress. The skirt length is below the knee,I wouldn’t have minded if it had been just above the knee. However, with the length of the material I could easily sit down without being too conscious which is always a great benefit of a lengthy dress.

I love the design because it’s conservative without being boring. The neckline is cut to show a hint of skin, but is still incredibly classy. The style is classic and elegant without being over the top. The dress does have an inner lining I’m not overly busty or anything so the inner lining around the bust was a little loose for me but can be fixed. Overall, it’s a lovely little red dress.

    this is such a stunning dress and you look fabulous. I do agree with you, why do we always have to have a reason/excuse to wear something that doesn’t fit within ‘every day outfit’ rules. Each day should be a celebration of life and this dress so vibrant and full of life. you look fabulous in red.

    Hey Len, I’m back to blogging for a lil’ bit and catching up on my reading. I totally agree with you, wear a dress just coz. Amongst my friends, I’m known for ‘over dressing’ and I claim and own that tag! Life’s too short and I dress how I feel, haha! Loving this red lace dress, it’s so flattering and timeless. Have a lovely evening, beauty. Xx

    I have to agree with you! Why do we sometimes feel the need to save things for a specific special occasion? Why not just wear them!

    This red dress is amazing on you, Len! And I agree! Why not wear something beautiful “just because?” 😉

  30. August 21, 2017 / 6:04 PM

    Exactly! Why not?! 🙂 I’m always a little hesitant about online shopping too. It’s so convenient but I also like to feel and know the quality of what I’m buying. But hey you can almost always return it.
