Little Red Dress: 'Fiery Gates'









Every girl needs a little red dress. I may have just found a new favorite! 

*****

H&M Ankle Boots
and Envelope Clutch (more picks: here, here, and here)
ProMod Wrap Watch (similar here and here)

*****

I'd like to thank Sugarlips for sending me this gorgeous red dress.  I love the way it's so demure and ladylike from the front yet surprises with killer cutouts in the back. It's definitely guaranteed to make an impression even when leaving a party.

I also love that Sugarlips describes the Sugar girl as "the girlie girl with just a hint of edge," as this is one of the ways I'd like to describe my personal style.  

I've paired the 'Fiery Gates' dress with black ankle boots, an oversized envelope clutch, my favorite black, studded wrap watch, and black & gold accessories. Since the front of the dress is simple and classic, I chose to pair it with edgier accessories (like this necklace and this bracelet) for contrast.  In my opinion, one of the easiest ways to put together a modern outfit is to pair together unexpected opposites.  You also can't ever go wrong with an oversized envelope clutch - I'm also loving these other styles herehere, and here

Thanks so much again to the Sugarlips team! You can shop Sugarlips' latest fashion forward styles on their website here, and you can also find their line in several major department stores, including Macy's, Nordstrom, and Dillard's.  

I'm looking forward to Date Night... I can't wait to have another excuse to wear this dress.   

Do you have a favorite go-to red dress?

Love, S

  52. Great dress! I need to streamline my closet to have a "go to". I have LOTS of dresses and I love them. Ten years ago thouhg I scored a little black dress by Calvin Klein at TJMAXX that I love. It's one of those great random fashion stories that has a fairy tale ending. The dress is perfect. It's a wool silk blend and has a satin around the neck. I dress it up and down.

  57. Super cute. I love the back. There are so many cute dresses out there that require a backless bra. Do you have any suggestions? I've tried 2 options already that didn't work.
