Red Sparkle

I fee like I've been wearing a lot of blue lately, so today, I decided to grab something red from my closet: this bold Shoshanna dress.

Dress: Shoshanna Annika Dress in Flame

The dress, also available at 6pm, with its little flounce at the bottom, is a slightly different take on a more traditional sheath dress. The fabric is also so much fun: red tweed with a little sparkle. It looks amazing up close. is having an amazing sale right now. You can find $300 dresses for under $80, and some for under $40! Check it out (before your size sells out).

Sandals: Jimmy Choo Lang Sandals in Flame

This "flame" color is a cross between red and orange, and I like that's a little more subdued than a standard red. With this color, if you don't have a lipstick that matches almost exactly, go with a nude lip. I don't look the best in orange-y lipsticks, so that's what I did here. I did my eye makeup a little darker than usual, too, to offset the lighter colored lip.

There's been a strong "no makeup" trend lately, but you won't see me leave the house without at least some foundation and concealer (except maybe to walk my dogs). I like makeup, and I enjoy experimenting with different looks. Like I always say about fashion: have fun with it. As long as you're comfortable and confident, nothing else matters.
