Gotta Have It: Swan by Clements Ribeiro Red ‘Joan’ Dress with Sequin
Did you know that the Evans collaboration with Clements Ribeiro launched over the weekend? Ohhh yes it did! And there are a few items that I have my eye on! Last week I shared with you the entire collection and editorial images, and guess what? It’s time to shop! LOL.
What has caught my eye the most?
Growing up, I was never allowed to wear red. No red dresses, skirts, nail polish, lipstick… For some reason (old school mother) wearing red meant you were fast. WHICH is probably why NOW, I hardly own red items-OR I do but I do not wear them often…
BUT, now that I am grown? HA! I find myself attracted even more to everything RED. I think in my mind, it’s me saying “I can handle this dress and the attention it attracts.” And this little number from Evans… ohh yes, I would wear it with a few adjustments:
- I would shorten the dress. Given the shape and the silhouette, I need the legs to balance this- especially with how tall I am! (I am 5’8”).
- I would make sure this dress fit me like Tara’s picture (the top/main image), rather than on the shop model. It is amazing how the change of someone with or without curves can change the look of a dress!
- I would pair this dress with SKY HIGH stilettos! Either peep toe or pumps, its all about the drama with this dress. An understated or subtle sexiness- yes?
