Swinging in Rouge

Outfit: Dress- Topshop; Shoes and Sunglasses - Primark; Necklace - Vintage


When it comes to an item of clothing, for me a touch of detailing on the back makes it much more worthy of interest. This red dress has seldom been worn due to its inappropriately short length, in truth I tend to wear it only in foreign countries. For some reason the warmer weather enables it to feel much more acceptable than in England where there's certainly a stigma attached to the length of a skirt. Despite this, it is the only item I own that possesses the beloved skater shaped skirt - something I have had my eye on for several seasons and which I aim to own more of over the following months. As for the bizarre spy-like glasses, I love them even though they lean towards the ridiculous.

I think the dress is beyond! You're right - it does have a skater skirt!! And by the way - the glasses are great. Not too spy-ish at all however, even if they were, there's nothing wrong with a little mystery. hehe

xoxo,
Carrie

This is my dream dress (maybe just a smidge longer for modesty's sake). I love the idea of a bold red cocktail dress. It's just so sassy and fun. And the cut outs in back really add some oomph! Don't keep this dress for foreign adventures, this baby should see some wear everywhere!
