I rarely wear red, except as an accent, but when I found this dress at the thrift store, I thought it would be perfect for the holidays. So, here I am: a redhead wearing red. I like wearing pink, so I’m used to breaking old school rules, but I’m not sure how I feel about this one. Red is probably not my colour, let’s just say.
I’m also not sure how I feel about a red and black pairing, where black is the accent not the predominant colour, but I needed a cardigan, so there it is. I suppose I could have attempted a bolder colour pairing but I was experiencing some holiday fatigue, and decided to go for something (a) simple, and (b) not too eye-searing. I will say that, accessorizing issues aside, this old-ish (?) Anthro dress is quite nice – soft, comfy, and flattering. It’s got pockets too, which always comes in handy (no pun intended). The ruffle detail around the necklace is a nice touch. Altogether, not bad for $13 and change.
