Fatshion Faceoff: Red Dress

Red dresses are my thing. You know how they say ' oh blah lag is my Homeboy!'. Well, red dresses are mine. They always have my back. There is something about slipping a smoking' hot red dress on that makes me feel like the sexiest young thing in the room. When my choice for FF theme came up I chose red dress without hesitation, all while envisioning myself in some smouldering eye makeup and killer heels. Despite these imaginations, for this week challenge I didn't end up tearing up the dance floors in my little, tight and jaw dropping red dress, instead I was out for a civilised dinner in my 1950's inspired colour block red dress!

Belt: New Look Inspire
Bag: Vintage Glomesh
Flats: Crocs

I'm sometimes a hit and miss with Dorothy Perkins' size 22. But boy oh boy, when it's a hit, it's a HIT! I fell in love with this dress the minute I slipped it on. The shape, the cut, the colours the neckline print! Swwwooonnnn! I literally audibly sighed in the change rooms. The poor chick next to me must have thought I was up to no good with the handsome bearded man who had been carrying my bags around ;)

I added the belt because the coral seems to deliciously balance out the red and subtle burnt orange. And then the bold yellow necklace pops against the black and of course (*ahem* the real reason is) I can't seem to control myself when it comes to 'stache accessorising ;)

Now I know the crocs have been seeing a lot of blog love lately, but they are just so damn comfortable and cute I can't help it! Go try some on stat!!

And now of course to check out all my lovely and babely red-dressed FF chickies!

How does a red dress make you feel????


  1. I thought this was a cropped top paired with a high-waist skirt when I first saw it. I guess the sort of brown color between the black and the red threw me off a bit. As usual, you're looking cheery and stylish. Nice style, Olivia! :)


  2. My favorite color combo is black and red and this dress!!! So cute and fun!!!

  3. You look amazing! I'm still so bummed I couldn't get my hands on this dress last year- it's lovely. Really love how you've kept to firey colours for accessorising, too :)

  4. Oooooh! I really really like this dress! I haven't ordered from DP in such a long time. Super super cute!

  5. You look great in this dress! Really like the colourblocking, and the fun yellow necklace too! :)


  6. cute dress, you look adorable! I've never shopped at Dorothy Perkins, may need to check it out :)

  7. I love wearing red, it is such an empowering color. I know I tell you this in every single comment but I only say it because it is always true, you look fabulous!


  8. Love love love! The cut is fantastic.
