Rack-tastic Red Dress

Well, it's Tuesday, I've had two big glasses of Strongbow cider, one small slice of pizza and I am ready for the couch, after shmoozing for 2 hours at a work event. 
I felt very Christmassy in this bright red dress all day. Zing! It's red. Really red.

  • Dress - Olsen, consignment; purchased here in Sidney for $25.00
  • Shoes - Chie Mihara; last seen here in September with the last lemon dress

My coworker Gord dubbed this dress "rack-tastic" - ha, thank goodness for him, I was beginning to think it did nothing for me! I love the skimming fit, the full-ish sleeves and the non-choke-y turtleneck.
I have a full vintage slip on underneath for its magical smoothing properties. I'll have to layer the dress next time, with a jacket or something, but for the first wear I wanted to show it off. It really felt like pajamas all day!

The stuff:
Lovely shoes - relatively comfy, although after standing and shmoozing for that long, my feet are tired. I changed back into my runner to walk home in the downpour.

Gold bling:
This necklace had many fans - it's a lovely yellow-y gold, although I don't think it's real (likely plated).

  • Necklace - D'Orlan, thrifted
  • Earrings - 5th anniversary gift from L 
  • Ring - late 90s

Now, time to chill...and dry out!


  1. Great red dress. That it feels like wearing pyjamas? Even better! Schmoozing and boozing. Hope you had a great crash on the couch.

  2. Love the statement necklace with the red dress, the perfect backdrop for it! :)

    Glad you had fun at the party!

  3. Fabulous red dress - it hugs your shape in just the right way, and a lovely shape it is. xox


  4. You look really pretty, I love the whole outfit!

  5. Gosh how very elegant you look my lovely! The magic underwear (yes, I told you we're best friends now, so we talk about undies all the time) well it showcases all of your curves beautifully. I adore these shoes and the amount of bling was spot on too. Am heading off to my couch now as I've just returned from book club and need to veg out before I go to bed x

  6. Rack-tastic indeed. The red dress is so stylish and the perfect backdrop for that necklace. Can quite see why it's got so many fans. I was swooning over it as soon as I saw it!


  7. Fabulous: dress, shoes, necklace and your figure.
