holiday red dressesNothing makes a statement like a red dress.  Just make sure the red dress you’re wearing is making the right statement.  You want your holiday frock to say “festive” not “floozy.”  No one wants to be the drunk girl falling out of her LRD (little red dress) post Santa-con Firieball shots complete with felt Santa hat.  Instead, embrace the colors or the season, bright crimson, deep green, and a touch of metallics to land yourself a spot right under the mistletoe.
