What I Heart Right Now: Little Red Dress

It’s not the little black dress (LBD) and it’s not the little white dress (LWD). It’s the little red dress (LRD). Unlike it’s red sister, the LBD is demure and reserved looking. Audrey Hepburn, Nicole Richie, and Michael Kors wore or wear all black to make a statement without making one. The LRD’s other sister, the LWD, is ethereal and comely. It’s the color of wedding gowns and the color of Marilyn Monroe’s dress she wore in “7 Year Itch” (the one that blew up as she stood over subway). But the LRD is unlike its sisters in that it’s brassy, bold, flippant and flirty (two alliterations, go Maddie!). The LRD’s statement is like that of a women looking at a man in askance, giving him just enough eye to give him the right hint, just enough of that pitter-patter glance that is both mysterious and indulgent. And that’s what I’m in the mood for, something red and something little and all that packed into a dress. Here are some of my favs…

This asymmetrical red number adds even more mystery to the LRD’s connotation

This deep crimson number‘s hemline is just the right length for the perfect dose of flirtiness

Even though this number is a little quirky, it still all things LRD (and it’s vintage!)

This number might not be little in the sense of length but it’s still an LRD in my opinion (and it’s my favorite out of the bunch)

This number definitely fits the mysteriously sexy definition of the LRD

Lastly, I chose this one because Ann Taylor always does it perfectly

      I used to shun red from my wardrobe by have recently taken a liking to the color. I used to think the color would clash with my hair and light skin but not so!
