Stylish quote

It is not very wise to buy a red dress. But I can understand the temptation-simply because men will say: "Who is that girl in the red dress?"

  1. Ah, so true. A red dress is an attention grabber. An LBD is chic, stylish, a safe choice I might say, but a red dress is fabulous, on the condition that it entirely represents you. xo

  9. HaHa! Red definitely makes you stand out from the rest. I wore a red button down shirt once and received a lot of GOOD attention from everyone. I was like WOW! I need to wear this shirt more. LOL

  10. Wow, this is one hell of a red dress. Who is it by? I've always enjoyed a good sculptural piece.

    BTW, a red dress is better than a black dress - two women can wear the same dress but no one will remember the one in black.

  16. @Clare, this dress reminds me of Chinese New Year decorations, in a good way. :) If you do do get a red dress, please share, I know it'll be something gorgeous. x

  17. I have to disagree with Marlene. It IS indeed wise to buy a red dress! I think every woman should have a red piece in her closet! It brings out her boldness.

  18. I would say that it is the wiser thing to do, buy a party red dress, buy a cocktail red dress and a casual red dress :) I am rediscovering the red attitude!;)

  19. I also remember the Matrix, with the scene where they role play the matrix and use the girl in the red dress to make a point. I have two red dresses, I have to feel bold to wear them, because boy you do stand out!
