i do not know why i avoided any shade of red for most of my adult life. then, a couple of years ago, i realized i loved shades of burgundy, oxblood, etc. – you know, those deeper hues.
when looking for outfits to celebrate my 30th birthday last week, asos was one of the first places i browsed and it did not disappoint. however, i was shocked when a friend asked if i had checked amazon out. now, i get my groceries delivered every 10 days from amazon fresh and i won’t get into how many times per month i get a box or envelope from amazon prime, but clothes? and more specifically, a dress to wear to a club? and for a plus sized girl?
well, i decided to bite the bullet and i am happy i did.
to me, few things compare to feeling sexy in what you are wearing i definitely was feeling myself with this little velvet number. and at under $30, i really got away with a steal. you can snag it for yourself here. in addition to oxblood, it also comes in black.
something i appreciated is that even while dancing (check out that second photo) in a short dress with ruching, it never rode up or had me feeling all exposed in the club. that was crucial with the amount of dancing we did this last weekend.
i paired it with my faux fur coat from asos (which has honestly been in a staple in my wardrobe since january of 2019). a faux fur coat and vest are both necessary pieces in any girl’s closet. vegas in the winter can be a bit breezy and that same coat is serving me well while i am in boston for work.
tomorrow, i will be giving you the full vegas rundown. it was truly one for the books.
