For years I have stayed away from bright red dresses!
Even though I grew up in Australia, my parents practiced a lot of Chinese traditions, including wearing bright red clothes during the festive season. So I used to associate this kind of red with old-fashioned traditions, which, as a teenager, I thought to be extremely dorky and daggy.
But I’ve definitely come full circle… embracing my ethnicity, embracing my old traditions and embracing RED!!
So even though I think I look like a Chinese firecracker here – it was so empowering to wear this red dress haha.
They say wearing bright colours can change your mood – well, I felt absolutely electric and vibrant in it.
This is the first time I have tried, wore and bought a Bec & Bridge dress.
The stretchy material is quite amazing. It is thick, strong, yet soft on the skin. It kind of pulls me in, in all the right places, a bit like a comfortable corset. It’s so easy to wear, move, walk, sit, drive and dance in.
It doesn’t have any zips. I just step into the dress, pull it up and hey presto, perfect fit!
I’m wearing the Size AU 6 here.
This dress is called the “C’est Cool Dress”, it’s a past-season dress, hence it was on sale. They have updated the style and it’s now called the “C’Est Magnifique Midi Dress” with thinner shoulder straps, but essentially it’s the same dress.
I seriously can’t get over how fabulous this dress is, in terms of flattering fit and quality, so I’m considering to try out more Bec & Bridge Dresses!
*I was kindly given a gift card courtesy of Garden City Shopping Centre to celebrate the new Autumn/ Winter season and I picked out this dress for an upcoming event.
