Cynthia Steffe Sexy Back Dress

Today, I thought I would try something different and show you both the front AND back of my outfit: a red/orange dress from one of my favorite designers, Cynthia Steffe.

I love the Cynthia Steffe Kayla Racerback Dress for several reasons:
  • The cut of the dress really accentuates the curves of a woman's body.
  • The black detailing helps break up the bold color and draws the eye away from the hips.
  • The back is very sexy... I love showing some back and shoulders.

The shoes today are from Nine West -- the Nine West Cawley Platform Pumps -- a birthday gift from my wonderful sister-in-law in New Orleans. I think these shoes go perfectly with this dress! I like Nine West because the shoes are chic yet priced very reasonably. I know the heels on today's shoes look high, but they are actually pretty comfortable... or maybe I am just really used to walking in heels now. Most days I wear flats my back hurts. That can't be good...

Anyway, I also thought I would mention something about my lipstick today. I don't have any orange or yellow in my closet, so therefore I don't have a lot of lip colors that are in that "burnt" color group; however, today I found Teaberry Shimmer from Elizabeth Arden in my collection of lipsticks. This lipstick was probably a free gift item, but it worked for me today. The color is slightly orange, so I think it complements the dress well.

Happy Tuesday!
