Lady in Red

Red Dress

A few weeks ago Jordan and I attended an engagement party for some old friends of ours. I’d had the date in the back of my mind for a while and had started looking for something to wear weeks in advance. Despite this, I ultimately still ended up in that frantic “I can’t find anything to wear and the event is tomorrow” period of time that no woman ever wants to be in.

I’m telling you, I spent afternoons trying on dress after dress and could not for the life of me find anything that felt quite right. Finally, the day before the event, I made one final attempt. The result was this elegant red dress from Valley Girl. Of all places!

I can’t say I’ve actually gone into Valley Girl since I was about 15, but after trying on half their store I made the discovery that their product really suits my figure. This dress was comfortable yet fitted and I paid just $50 for it. I quickly grabbed some dangly earrings from Colette on my way out and teamed the dress with a studded belt and some black heels I had at home.

All up, it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon spent with old friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen in years! Perhaps I had a few too many wines but I figured it was only natural to reminisce about old times spent drinking by well…drinking!
