Your clothing can totally send the wrong message.
Sometimes, just your sartorial decisions can say a lot about your character, your intentions, and perhaps even your insecurities! Unfortunately, for most red dresses, I feel like they always send a message that doesn’t necessarily align with me….weird, I know. I don’t know if it’s that they simply draw a different type of attention, or that they have a stigma of being knows as “sexy,” or that they aren’t in my wheelhouse of dresses I would reach for on a night on the town….RED DRESSES MAKE ME FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE…PERIOD.
But this red dress appealed to me in several ways that felt supremely comfortable: a) it’s made out of jersey knit…aka, the best fabric known to man, b) that cold shoulder detail gave me all the feels, and c) there’s something about long sleeves on a mini dress that appeal to me. So, there you have it….a red dress that doesn’t make me feel like I belong on a street corner! And when paired with my new favorite pom-pom shoes that scream “SUMMER FUN!” I couldn’t be more thrilled about FINALLY rocking a red dress!
