red dress whydid kirsten smithNew York may be called the Big Apple, but when it comes to that shiny red skin, we’d prefer it be rotten.  New Yorkers tend to favor the LBD over the LRD because wearing color makes us nervous.  Regardless of New York’s aversion to any other shade of black than black, a red dress is a closet staple, especially around the holiday season.  Much like the “bend and snap,” an LRD works every time.  You may be saying, “But I don’t look good in red.”  Fortunately for your pretty little whining self, there are enough shades of red that at least one will complement your skin tone and hair color- from crimson to cranberry.  So take a step outside of your comfort zone during the party circuit this year and dare to draw some attention to yourself in any various shade of red.

Shall we go ahead and acknowledge the upcoming calendar holiday (ahem, Valentine’s Day)?  Knowing you pretty (and smart) ladies, you’ve probably already got a handful (or more) of handsome suitors just willing you to be their Valentines.  As a matter of fact, they’re probably doodling your name as we speak.  Whether or not you oblige one of these lucky gentlemen on their offer or opt to hit the town with your favorite gal pals instead, it’s never too early to start planning your outfit.  Stick to traditional red, a splash of fuchsia, or spice things up with a playful pattern.  These frocks are sure to get all kinds of hearts aflutter.
