What I Wore: Red Evening Gown

7 September 2017

Lovers and Friends Red Dress

Hello hello!

Gah I am absolutely loving this new Lovers + Friends Red Dress, courtesy of Revolve.

I don’t own a long, red evening gown – so with lots of big events coming up, I figured it was time to get one :)

Looking at the model’s photo, I thought the dress might look a bit plain… but it’s just lovely in real life. It sits very firm against my chest, waist and skims of my hips to a swishy skirt. It’s super comfortable!

I think the appeal is in its simplicity and elegance.

I like that it shows some skin, but it’s NOT an off-shoulder dress, as that style will eventually go out of fashion. This style is a bit more timeless, I think!

Simply throw on some bling, put on some nude (or black heels), a smudge of red lippy – and you’re good to go!

After I took these photos, I decided to take the dress  to a seamstress to get the hem taken up. I didn’t like the way the skirt dragged on the floor and bunched up at my feet. I almost tripped over it!

Now it sits just above the ground and it has a nicer, more polished silhouette.

It’s currently on pre-order, with a delivery date for Nov 9. Perfect for Christmas functions or Chinese New Year next year! And if it doesn’t work out, you always have free returns!
