Red Stems



   


dress (J.Crew extra 40% off), tights (Target--only $5), shoes (Plenty by Tracy Reese), necklaces (old as dirt, no clue--2 layered acrylic necklaces), bracelets (J.Crew & Stella & Dot), ring (David Yurman), shades (Gucci), watch (Cartier)
For all of you 9 to 5 gals like myself, this is the Perfect Dress for your day gig!  She also fits the bill for a ladies' lunch, meet the parents, church, or a daytime shower.  Toss her on with some tights or sans such once the weather warms, and you have an easy, yet polished, rig (it's quite comfy, too).  Make it a good one, gang!

PS:  if the Dress is not avail in your size online, call your local store & they'll do a store search to find it for you.  I do this all the time for items that aren't avail in my size online--works like a charm!
PPS:  the necklaces I'm wearing are old as dirt...disliked individually, but once I doubled the acrylics, all old was new again and they're back in rotation!  Lesson here, don't forget about your old pieces, just try to sport them in a new way!

  2. I love the layered necklace look! I'd have had no idea they were two separate necklaces. It adds just the right amount of edge to a ladylike dress!

  3. Great dress indeed! When the title said red stems I was expecting red jeans, so this was a surprise (but a pleasant one). I love love love the whole shebang.

  10. Those necklaces are to do for! I love the texture and chunk. You hair cut is really great, I would love to do that, I think it might work for my hair type.

  12. I am a die hard colored tight lover. Your bold red tights, set off that dress! To be honest, I don't know if I would enjoy the dress as much without the tights.

    Love the entire thing, as usual. ;)
