BIG RED

Because there are 62 shopping days 'till Christmas!
Be naughty and nice! Wrap yourself up in one of these darling numbers. Finally, the perfect way to wear red during Christmas without looking like Mrs. Claus. These dresses are perfect for Valentine's day too; the color, bow and length amp up the flirt factor, but the volume tones it down...
Red silk taffeta dress $275.00 on eDressMe; Christian Lacroix silk strapless mini dress $4,185.00 (yikes!) on net-a-porter; Forever 21's red tube dress is a more reasonable alternative at $22.80 (this looks exactly, ahem, suspiciously like a black H&M dress that I have! But accusing Forever 21 of copying H&M would be like the pot calling the kettle hot)!

My Pick: If a short crimson dress is too daring, check out the trench below* the flouncy ruffles and detachable belt (not pictured) echo the flavor of the dresses above. Hurry up and get yours, the price is unbeatable for a Lacroix!
Christian Lacroix "Falbala" trench for La Redoute (La Redoute, quickly becoming my go-to online shopping destination, was previously mentioned here), $299.99!
*I was too much of a coward to buy the red one, after much deliberation and polling of many of my friends, I opted for the black version. Seriously though, picture me walking up into the firm in a red trench! As much as I might like to, it's not going to happen...

Hi Naki! It's Alicia (up in Boston) - just want to say I love your blog - I've read it several times over the past few months, and you always have helpful info (thanks for the link to La Redoute - they have cute stuff!) and great insights. I have no idea how you do this all on top of the law firm work, but I'm impressed - keep it up! :) love, a
