In my post of 24 December, I wore a red tartan scarf and wrote that I was wearing red next to my face for the very first time; I pondered whether I should get a classic red dress as I'd always wanted one. Get this: the very next day (Christmas Day) I received a red dress from my husband. A beautiful, red midi dress from Asos that I'd seen ages ago and must have added to my online wish list and promptly forgot about. So this redhead wore red to a Christmas party, and received no end of compliments about it on the night...!
It's actually described as pink on the website (?!!) but I think it's a washed-out red rather than pink. All it needed was a bit of bling, a funky clutch and some patterned tights and I was comin' over all Chris De Burgh's Lady In Red. So I have a red dress at last, people - I am so stoked! I think I'd always envisaged myself looking like this, but I think a jersey midi version with sleeves is more me...!
Do you own a red dress - and if you do what style is it? Tell me in the comments!
