Crimson and Roses


 Hi everybody!
Hope you all had a great long weekend :) We didn't do much, 
but did really dig the cool summer air blowing through the curtains at night. 
Also, my one and only rosebush is in full bloom! YaY! 
Most women my age wouldn't see that as a huge venture that involves bragging rites, but I (or should I say, our rocky-ass yard) cannot grow the average flowering plant. Of any sort...
 So, in honor of the crimson roses that are making my front yard a bit less drab -The ones making us not "Those Neighbors" who grow dandelions for sport, I am wearing a thrifted deep red Liz Claiborne dress. I LOVE the drop waist and I cut out that stifling attached slip to make it properly sheer... It could be really pimped out with a belt, baubles, vests, etc...,But it seemed to lay better sans tons of accessories. Just a wisp of red silk. Monochromatic. 
If you don't count 2 scarves;)
This dress will definitely see some action this fall!

How would you accessorize this dress?
Do you enjoy wearing non-traditional seasonal colors?

Have a rose colored day!

What a fabulous dress, the shape looks incredible on you!
I nearly always wear bright summery colours which in a climate like the UK is totally unseasonal and ridiculous. xxxx

You look so charming in this dress. I like the way you accessorized it with a hat and a scarf and those bangles. Love your hairstyle too.

The deep red dress makes you the most gorgeous rose in the garden. A blooming beauty! With the perfect amount of accessories so that we can see the lovely lines of your dress.

Reva! You look amazeballs in this gorgeous Fall hued claret. As much as I think of YOU and mix prints master, you are the Queen of solid too! Loved last post's ivory and am loving this classic dress done up ala Reva too. What a style Queen you are. What a pure Rose!
