Not only is this 40s inspired vintage dress the most gorgeous red I’ve ever seen, but it’s also a very silky polyester so it just feels rich and luxurious. It’s 3/4 sleeve and has one snap that holds the front together. If you wanted to, you could wear a pretty little tank top underneath and let the top stay parted. I wish I had gotten a shot of it open, but I was not wearing a tank top and I don’t think we know each other like that just yet 😉
Oh, did I mention you can pick up this dress in the Etsy shop?
Fur Vest – Urban Outfitters last year (similar vest)
This vintage dress is totally perfect for the holidays too. You’ll be a bombshell at any holiday party wearing anything silky and red. Seriously, I don’t know what it is about the red, but as soon as I put it on it’s like a whole new me. I mean forever ago, red was the mark of all things sexual, so I guess it kind of makes sense right.
And a big thank you to my photographer who was dying for cigarettes but took these pictures first.
