Happy weekend! I am writing this post from Thailand as I force myself to stay awake and try to adjust to the new time zone. I slept 13 hours on our flight from LAX to Hong Kong and 2 hours on our flight from Hong Kong to Phuket, and I am still tired. I think my body is just confused. Tyler said I wasn’t allowed to sleep so I decided to write this blog post I’ve been thinking about all week because I knew giving myself something to do would keep me awake.
I have been obsessed with this blue velvet dress since I got it in the mail and was dying to share it with you all! If you haven’t heard of Red Dress Boutique, you definitely need to check them out! I first saw them on a Shark Tank rerun Tyler was watching. Obviously, when I heard that episode included something related to fashion, I started paying attention. Since then, I’ve followed Red Dress on social media and usually want just about everything they post. I can actually buy the things I want too, because unlike a lot of other stores I love, Red Dress is super affordable!! Almost everything I’ve ever looked at is under $100, with most items being closer to $50, like my dress.
This dress is going to be my go to for the holidays. When I see velvet, I always think glam meets cozy. The wrap style of this dress makes it perfect for a holiday party at work or with family, or even a date night. It also comes in pink which I love! Wrap dresses are so flattering on a lot of different body types which is another major win with this dress. When I go to parties with good food, I tend to avoid body con dresses because, let’s be honest, food baby. I know I’ll be totally comfortable all night in this outfit. The dress also has buttons on the inside where the tie is so you can make sure the wrap stays in place exactly how you need it.
Now, for the shoes. I’m in love!! I’ve wanted a pair of heels with pearl embellishment for a month now, but couldn’t find ones I loved in my price range. Problem solved because these beauties are under $40! Seriously, such a steal. They have a block heel too which means they’re super comfortable. They fit true to size so I’m wearing a 5.5. Also, if you didn’t notice the most fab earrings I’m wearing, scroll up a few pictures and check them out. I love tassel earrings so I was really excited to add these to my collection. My shoes and earrings are both from Red Dress Boutique as well so not only do they have the cutest clothes, they also have amazing shoes and accessories. Check them out and let me know what you think!
