What I Wore: Lady in Red

For whatever reason, the 1984 film The Woman in Red, made a profound impression on my 8 year old brain.  The way Gene Wilder’s character was bewitched by Kelly LeBrock in her sexy red dress made me realize the power of a lady in red.  Empowered is exactly how I felt when I first slipped this dress on in the dressing room of Tootsies of Atlanta.

I initially bought this dress to wear to a Valentine’s dinner with my husband over a year ago, but he had other plans.  The dress remained in my closet while I anticipated my next opportunity to wear such a dress.  This past weekend my husband’s childhood friend was getting married so I thought this would be the perfect time to make a great impression in this dress.  It’s awkward attending a wedding when your husband is one of the groomsmen.  You end up sitting at a table with a bunch of strangers by yourself.  This dress gave me just the right amount of confidence I needed to open up and become that social butterfly I have the potential to be.

I just love the fit of the dress and the ruching is very forgiving.

The weather was absolutely perfect for the wedding but I always prepare for indoor air conditioning with a scarf or shawl.  Sexy black pumps and gold jewelry finished off the look.
