Red, Two Ways

For so long I thought that red was "not my color" because I am really pale (yes I do live in Florida ha!) and honestly I have been kind of afraid to wear this popular color.  Well last Saturday I went bridesmaids dress shopping with my soon to be sister in law. I tried on a red bridesmaids dress and was surprised by how much I liked the color. Who knew that bridesmaids dresses would encourage me to try something new in fashion!?

This Friday I am linking up with {av} from long distance loving at her Friday Fancies party. The theme for this week is red!  I am loving very feminine and polished looks for fall and this red Express dress is just that. I love the accentuated waist (I recommend swapping the black belt for a leopard print) and pretty ruffle detail. Plus, it's less than $100! I picked accessories for both trendy downtown and classic uptown looks to maximize the dress. 

 Dress: Express

Downtown

Uptown
Bracelet: Banana Republic
