Ode to the Red Dress

Oh red dress, how do I love thee?

My grandmother once told me a story of when she was first married.  Their budget was tight and she needed one dress.  This dress had to work for church, parties, meetings, and lady's lunch.  She could only afford one dress at the time to serve all these possible events.  I think most of us would go with the safe choice: black.  But she did not.  The took her money to Montaldo's and bought one RED DRESS.  I love this bold, vivacious choice!  The next time you have an event- whether it be special or just everyday, consider a red dress.  It works well for day and night and you will stand out in the crowd.

Every shade of red dress has been seen on the runways for the past couple of seasons.  It is well represented for Fall 2012 as well.

  1. Those are great dresses. I can not wear red. Even my husand, who never ever says anything negative about me, told me I don't look good in red! Wish I could though. . .

  2. Kate, I cannot imagine that you would not look gorgeous in anything you chose to wear! xx
