Though the title of this post sounds like a short story, it actually describes the red cold shoulder dress I just got my hands on. I am not usually a red dress person, but red may have become the new black ladies!
I have a strong tendency to purchase any dress or top off the shoulder, one shoulder or anything shoulder these days. I love the fact that this dress shows both shoulders and has a nice strap detailing on the front. Plus, the ruffles add movement to the dress, which is one of the things I just can’t say no this season. What’s best about this dress is that it is linen. I always check the fabric before I purchase it and linen is one the healthy fabrics on top of my list.
The ruffle detail on the hem of the skirt complements the one on the chest very elegantly. Although the ruffle on the hem makes it look more like a casual dress, the color and the cold shoulder detail of the dress immediately deny that. It is true that this little red dress can be worn day or night, dressed up or down. I chose to style it with metallic kitten heels and a metallic bag. This look might be perfect for a date night as well as a cocktail or a summer party.
Speaking of which, I am so ready to leave for Europe next week! Can’t wait for the summer travels to start! What are your travel plans for the summer?
