Sunday Remix

This past summer I was on the hunt for the perfect red dress and I finally snagged this one from Zara (before they had a website through a friend). Unfortunately, it was a size too large so it took some major alterations--shortening the torso, taking in the sides, adjusting the sleeve length, etc. However, with all that complete it is nearly my perfect little red dress. I've been wearing it with layers this fall and winter as well. The pictures are posted in chronological order (remember when I had hair?).

  1. I'm curious how many of your pieces you have tailored. I think we're about the same measurements (though I'm taller at 5'6") and it's a battle to find clothes that fit me, I always have to take inches out of the sides and waist myself, but you seem to meet success much more often. Can you write a post about tailoring and show us some pieces you had tailored?

  4. @Sarah, sorry I'm not a sewing/tailoring expert so I don't really feel showing my haphazards seams would benefit anyone! I'd just say keep experimenting with it...

  5. We have ZARA here in Oxford and I often go in and browse just long enough to finish my cappuccino--any longer and i'm likely to succumb . . . I really love the first photograph in particular--there's something so absolutely timeless about the image and your lovely personality really comes through somehow in the clothes and the posture. Thanks for these!

  7. I love all the ways you styled this sweet little red dress. I have to say the last picture is my favorite. I love the layers, and I adore your short hair. You wear it so well. Happy Sunday!

  12. Yep, I think a little red dress is even more essential than a black one?

    Do you miss your hair at all, or are you happy to be liberated from it?

  16. I love that red dress and I have it too! I am now very tempted to some some alterations and remove the details on the shoulders and shortening it after seeing how awesome it looks on you. I love how it's such a thick material too, keeps me cosy in Winter!

  20. I like how the red goes so well against the white background in the top photos, it really compliments the dress.

  21. It's the perfect silhouette dress, period. Not just because it's red. The red only adds to your 60s chic glam vibe. I'm sure you don't like the term "glam" as applied to you, but you certainly rock this dress, and it was made for you, like a character in a Zooey Deschanel song.

    Ps. I've missed you. Hopefully I'm back on the blogging bandwagon. Maybe...

  22. Red dresses are the best! Love this one too, I think it was in the window display of our local Zara for quite some time, but unfortunately I didn't buy it...

  24. @pinkpaypalprincess, there is no Zara in VA; that's why I explain in the post I needed a friend in NYC to buy it for me. but Zara has a website now and you can order online from anywhere in the US.
