red dress


When in doubt, wear red

When in doubt, wear red.
-Bill Blass





I was sent this gorgeous retro style red dress by Sammy Dress for a review, and I have to say that it is really pretty! I’m somewhat disappointed that it’s a little bit too big on the bodice, I’m not sure now if I took the proper measurements but I can always take it in a little. It’s a light cotton fabric but with some body to it, so that the dress looks sturdy enough. It’s got short sleeves, so it’s perfect for a Summer garden party or a lindy hop dance contest. As you can see, it can also be styled with a little cardigan or shrug, when it’s a little bit chilly (which was the case).

I wore it with a vintage tulle petticoat underneath that I already had, so it’s not included in the dress. It does come with a little black belt though. The cardigan is from H&M but I thrifted it a while ago. The shoes are Irregular Choice, via Ebay, the necklace is from Pull and Bear and I got it during my latest visit to Lisbon. I like it that it’s mock coral but it kind of looks a bit like chilies. Hot!
