The Best Red Dress(es) For Spring.
Hi hi! How is your week going? Last night Becca and I had drinks with our Internet friend Morgan. Morgan loves cats and books as much as I have and I have been following her for ages so it was fun to finally meet in real life! I really love her feed and if you are looking for more bookstagram accounts to follow, hers is an absolute MUST!
My friend Cassandra threw a party a few weeks ago and wore this dress and I was so sure it was vintage! I asked her where it was from and was so excited when she told me it was Anthropologie – and current. So of course the next day I went out and bought the same one. It’s the best!!! I’d say that it definitely runs on the smaller side. I took a small and it’s pretty loose – I’m usually a small or a medium in dresses and button front dresses often gape in the bust and that was not the case with this one. I would usually have ordered a medium because of the button front but reviews said it ran large so I’m happy that I listened!
ALSO – I will just say that I bought this dress from Anthro when it was still available in extended sizes and it sold out SO quickly in plus sizes – so annoying – I linked to a few cute plus options down below!!
Outfit Details: Anthropologie Dress (this one is available up to a size XXL and so is this one and this comes in all sizes up to a 4x!) // Sarah Flint Heels // Paravel Bag (also here!) // Estee Lalonde x Daisy Jewellery Necklace
You might have gathered that I really love red. It’s one of my favorite colors – from an easiness perspective it goes with almost everything (practically a neutral) but it still stands out and makes a fun splash. I have been wearing the Tanya Taylor dress from this post constantly (like, constantly, to the point where my friends laugh at me for wearing it so much!) and have gotten a lot of requests for some similar, more affordable options so here are three! The Leith wrap dress is probably the closest, and only $79… but I realllllly want that Rachel Parcell dress too! And this dress is only available in plus sizes but it’s SO PRETTY.
