Color Me Red
Every birthday, I've made it a tradition to wear something new and this year, I wanted to do just the same. Luckily, I had held off on wearing this red dress from Francesca's. A girl wants to feel special, especially on her birthday -- am I right?! With a casual dress code at work, I wore this to the office (got lots of love for it!) and it was perfect for my birthday plans after work: date night with the hubs (we went out for ramen and I shamelessly dragged him to Bridget Jones's Baby -- it was GREAT, and whatever, he was cracking up too!). But, back to this dress. I'm obsessed! The color is beautiful. It's a bright, red meets orange hue. It meets the mark for comfort too. It's flowy, flattering and the material is heavenly. The nice thing too about a dress like this is that you can wear it to many different occasions and dress it up or down.
I also loved pairing the dress with my new peep toe booties. And I already know these are going to get a ton of wear this season. Cognac goes with everything and its soft leather and padded insoles make these shoes so incredibly comfy! You'll feel it the moment you put 'em on. Shopping Tip: These shoes are available online at ninewest.com for $69.99, but I would call your nearest Nine West Outlet store and see if they carry them. That's where I got mine and for right under $40 (such a steal!). In terms of sizing, I found the booties to be true to size.
