I am so excited to bring you all a new series for February “Wear the Red”. This series will feature creative ways to incorporate red into your looks for February. In this series I will show you all how a simply accessory, like a pair of earrings, or even a little red dress can put you in the mood to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day! Third up are these red accessories with this magenta dress!
This magenta dress was love at first click! I saw it and immediately pictured myself in it! I am super happy to have the ability to look past the model and think of my body in clothing, it is an art in itself. The funny thing about this dress was that I knew the buttons would be a problem for my hips, but I went with it. Guess what? The buttons were a problem! Check out my sizing notes for all the details.
When I styled this dress I knew I would be wearing my red accessories without a doubt. I literally had to narrow down my favorite earrings and landed on the ones pictured. I have had these earrings for about 4 years and they are still bomb. I shot with them when I was pregnant with Peanut. Then I went with my red block heels because they are the perfect shade of red.
Style Notes: Let’s talk about this dress. I am typically a 1x in most dresses but if a dress has buttons, I automatically size up because my hips are significantly larger than my waist. Well I ordered the 2x and the button still pulled. I reordered this dress in a 3x and the buttons pulled just not as bad. My red block heels are true to size in a 10.
