Most people have a thing for little black dresses. But me? I have a thing for little red dresses. If a store has one in stock, you best believe that I’m hunting it down (and you also best believe that I’m probably bringing it home with me).
The latest dress to get added to my red dress collection is a little number from a new (to me) favorite brand, Lucy Paris. The dress looks relatively plain and simple, but those bell sleeves and open back give it all the detail I need (to justify the purchase of yet another red dress). While it looks best paired with heels or wedges, I’ve also worn it bit more casually with a fancier pair of sandals. For a seriously dressy look, I’ll throw on a pair of earrings and grab my black Chanel, but my current accessory of choice is the now infamous (at least by Instagram standards) Cult Gaia bag, which I think makes this dress look like it’s ready for a night out in a tropical paradise, or simply an easy transition into warmer weather.
Is there one particular color dress you always find yourself buying, or, do you stick to classic black and/or white dresses?
