It Came From Dress Week - Casual Tuesday - Red Knit

I picked up this dress for only $30 a couple of weekends ago - I love Kersh's knits.

Still taking advantage of the last couple of weeks of Casual Month at work to wear denim mid-week. It feels so decadent.

I basically built the outfit around the shoes: put them with the red dress...this needs a belt, then a jacket, then the earrings. I'm just dying with stiffness from my first aikido class last night, so forgive me for looking in pain above. I am!

A close-up of the new shoes (and a look at the texture of the sweater dress):
I was looking for a pair of shoes like this forever, and of course found them at Le Chateau for under $40. Crazy! I felt very chi-chi in my fishnets with these puppies on.

Dress (Kersh), jacket (Ann Taylor Loft), shoes (Le Chateau), belt (gift from Mom, London), earrings (Plum), fishnet tights (Hue).

  4. Trace: thanks! I can always rely on Le Chateau for cheap knock-offs of designer.

    Leigh-Anna: me too - that's what drew me to it (and the colour).

  7. Again, I want to steal that dress. I like your idea of dress week. When the weather warms up, I am going to challenge myself to make every dress I own work appropriate.

  9. Kayleigh: Thanks! I was going to do a brown velvet jacket but felt it was too match-matchy. I adore tomato red - it's the best colour with my skin tone.

    Lady D: Not a chance! My shoes! Haha!

    Cat: I am a dressaholic. I love them. I mean, I don't really need 39 dresses, do I? Well, uh, yeah, I do! What of it?

    Andrea: Thank you so much!
