Red isn’t a color that I’m drawn to. It’s not one that I wear often. I always had this idea in my head that blondes don’t look good in red. But when I tried on this red floral faux wrap dress (currently on sale for $49 with code SHOPTOIT) at J.Crew last week, my mind was changed.
I was shopping with a friend, picking up my usual blue and white options when she said, “You always wear navy, just try this one!” I tried it on just to appease her but was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it. So much so that I wore it out of the store. Yes, I’m five.
After I took these photos I went to Whole Foods and two people stopped me in the aisles to tell me they liked the dress. Then the woman checking me out told me that I didn’t look old enough to have kids. Ha! She must have been 22. And blind?
Or the dress has magical powers… Magical powers to turn me into the dancing lady emoji. I had to take the picture, obviously.
Not only is the color fun and different me, but the cut is insanely flattering. I put it on and felt 10 pounds lighter instantly. The cut has a slimming effect and it’s not a real wrap dress so all it takes is a zip up the back to feel so fancy.
Have a great Monday and wear something out of your comfort zone this week. It can really change your whole vibe for a day!
