the mean reds

Dress: Cynthia Rowley (borrowed); Shoes: Steve Madden; Clutch: Olympia Le-Tan (love this one); Sunglasses: Celine; Bracelet: Miansai

Things can get pretty monochromatic around these parts (what can I say, I love my blacks, whites and grays) and especially after moving out to the east coast, I've caught myself adopting the New York uniform. Black, black, with more black. And a dash of really, really, really dark gray.

But there's something about a red dress. You know the one. The one that can turn heads. Maybe gets you a drink right away at the bar. Heck, perhaps it brings out your inner salsa dancing, red-dress sporting emoji señorita. (True story: she's my spirit emoji.)

As for me and red dresses? I don't don them very often but I like to think that's because they should be used sparingly. Like a secret weapon. And this Cynthia Rowley number? Well let's just call her my smoking gun.

In the market for a new red dress? Here are a few of my favorites around the interwebs these days that would probably give Jessica Rabbit a run for her money...
