This red dress won by popular vote and by default, based on what you said on Twitter anyways. I do have more red items in my wardrobe these days, especially after my last thrift haul. And when Monochrome theme Thrift Style Thursday came around, I thought to myself, why not go all red? I know it may seem like too much, but I am also showing ways and offering tips on how to tone it down, so sit tight!
The dress is Calvin Klein, size 4P, I am lucky like that, I can pull of petites. But of course this dress is sleeveless, which makes it so much easier. It also creates a nice waistline, thanks to the cut. And the best part is – it was brand new from Goodwill for only $8.99.
The shoes have already been featured in last week’s Thrift Style Thursday post, and I am madly in love with them! They are a darker shade of red, which helps create some contrast, unlike the clutch. Yes, the clutch matches the dress in color almost to a T. I won it in a giveaway over 3 years ago. I wish I used it more often.
Not so sure about the whole red thing? Throw a different colored blazer on top and/or put on another pair of shoes. Trust me it makes all the difference? Want to see?
