Red Red Dress

Yes, back to holiday dresses. Going from muted tones to FIERY RED, and orange and purple...and black.

I fully approve of this dress by Theory. I don't know why, it's rather simple, not totally exciting, and I'm not huge on patterns, but I'm definitely big on this. It's like big brush stroke roses.

Clearly I'm going to like this one, and I'm going to tell you I'm in love with it because it has ruffles. I cannot stop with the ruffles, oh Lela Rose, how beautiful.

My God, and then I found THIS. Roberto Cavalli! Red! Luscious! Passionate! Most Excellent!

Oscar De La Renta - the perfect designer for a night out. I have nothing else to say, the colour just pops, and the amount of detail is just enough for it to be very interesting, but not overly gaudy.

This big rose applique on the side of the dress is awesome. Some skill definitely went into designing it. While it's a bit last season, it's not just sewn on, it's sewn into the dress. Stunning and memorable to say the least.

Just like I can't get away from ruffles, I can't get away from black. The following dress is by Abeate. Wonderful!

I absolutely love the dresses
but I'm disappointed with the lack of red shoes
I went on a month long search for some decent red party-shoes and came up flat

I just love these dresses. Red is the color of Christmas. So it would be great to chose anyone as my Christmas dress.

Pretty dresses..
Liz: Try ALDO for red shoes.. they have red patent leather pumps there for $90. and the heel is soo high. I'm 5'1" so i get really excited about heel length. and they have a squarish front which i love too. I am in LOVE with them. I'll probably go get them this weekend actually. And they have several other red party shoes in different style.. peep toe, stilettos etc.

I made a similar comment yesterday, and I am not sure what makes a summer dress and what makes a winter dress necessarily, but all of them but the last two (which I LOVE, especially the fuscia one!!!) look like summer dresses to me...

Is winter the new summer!?

Hey HG and BG
I absolutely love this post.Its the perfect touch to the holiday season. I also blogged about solid red dresses on my own blog. I totally agree with you on huge patters, I also don't like them on dresses. However, with this post you persuaded me to agree with you that big brush stroke roses on a red dress look fabulous.I also used to think that red dresses would look best with just a solid color but the ruffles defiantly add a beautiful touch. I really love the Roberto Cavalli Red dress. Its amazing! I love the floral pattern and the high belt. I usually wouldnt go for that style dress but you have changed my mind. However, with the Oscar De La Renta I'm not a huge fan of. I dont like the orange cover over the dress. I'm in love with the big rose applique on the side of the dress I agree with you when you say that skill went into designing. It is stunning!Although you named this article red red dress I agree with you about the black dress . I like how the top of the dress is tight and gradually flares out. Love the ideas. Keep it up!

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه

La ragione popolarità di ristorante milano è che essi presentano i pasti nel modo più fantasioso e creativo possibile. Ogni piatto è come un'opera d'arte per chef italiani. Sono gli unici ristoranti che producono le pizze da 20 pollici, che hanno respirato varie verdure diverse, frutti di mare, le spezie e carni che non si sarebbe nemmeno pensare di combinare.
