Valentine’s Day Revisited!

So back in February when I was blogging about what to wear for Valentine’s Day, I picked a couple of my favorite red dresses of the season. My first choice was RM’s Ezra dress that really spoke to my style. I paired it with Louboutin’s Pigalle 120 (which I just bought as well). Normally RM’s dresses are sold out pretty fast in the smaller sizes, so I was super lucky to have snatched this from one of the European stores at a great price on sale.

The neckline is gorgeous, which I always love about Monsieur Mouret’s work. I dunno, there’s something about it being so sexy, yet very conservative at the same time. Unfortunately, I find the fit to be a little bit off. I did get it one size larger than my usual size which may explain the bunching of fabric around the hips. I’m a little self-conscious about it since my hips are a little wide. I definitely need to bring the dress to my seamstress to get the “crotch problem” fixed!!! Otherwise, I love the dress – and oh! – did I mention that this is also my first red dress?!?! I felt like I need to stop buying black and other neutral colors. Time to step out of my comfort zone and face my childhood fear of the color red!!!

  1. I suggest you also have it take up a little. It’s shortening you right now as it does past the knee…but even if that’s the style it’ll be more flattering just a smidge short…like your black one!

  2. Thanks for the idea, but I like the way it is since it helps to hide my boggy knees 🙂
    I actually prefer this length more so than the black Helena dress.
    My seamstress will be fixing the pleating problem around the hips though.
