Red Hot Holiday Dresses for all Sizes!


The holidays are around the corner & I can’t help, but embrace all the luxurious reds in my wardrobe, whether it’s velvet, brocade, knits, suede, or leather. However, a little red dress for this time of year is perfect for celebrating all that’s joyful & stylish. Red isn’t just stylish in a fire engine hue; there’s crimson, burgundy, apple, & so many more shades to mix & match with metallic accessories. I’m pretty obsessed with red this last week (as seen by my latest Instagram posts), which is why I’m inspired to share these flirty & seasonal red dresses.

These dresses might look extra fancy, but they can be styled many different ways to get the most wear out of them. For example, try knotting a denim button down shirt over one or throwing on a chunky sweater & use the skirt as a dress? Red is also a great foundation for a gold statement necklace, silver accessories, or black beads too. For more holiday posts, click here, here, here, & here. Happy Styling!

11/1/11 Darling of the Day: America Ferrera is Red Hot in Nicole Miller!


As soon as I saw the former Ugly Betty star, America Ferrera, in this red hot Nicole Miller dress, I knew I just had to post it.  I don’t think she’s ever looked better & she’s miles away from where she was when she first made her red carpet debut during press tours for Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Here, America is definitely stealing the show, attending a West End production of Chicago in London.

While I couldn’t find a red dress with the same neckline, anything figure flattering & curve hugging that helps frame the face will do to recreate the smouldering look.  This Ellen Tracy dress ($83.53) from 6PM is also available in black & turquoise, in sizes 2-16. The textured surplus dress ($22.80) from Forever 21 is super hot for my fuller-figured Style Darlings, available in XL – 3X.

As for the shoes, America’s wearing red velvet peep toes that make her look all the more luxurious.  I found velvet lace-up ballerina pumps ($38.00) from Charlotte Russe, which are both youthful & flirty for any night out.

Even though the glowing actress doesn’t seem to be wearing much jewelry, since her figure is her best asset, I added these delicate glittered bead earrings ($6.80) just for a polished touch of class & contrast.
