I’ve always had a thing for red dresses ever since I saw the movie Pretty Woman:
The movie came out in 1990, and in 1991 when I went to my Senior Ball, I commissioned a similar dress made out of red velvet:
I loved the dress so much I wore it again in 1994 for my Junior Ball in college which I coerced my friend to take me to:
Then, I bought another red dress, this one with a strappy red back, which I wore out with my friends in college:
And another red dress which I wore to my Junior League formal in 2008:
Needless to say, there have been countless other red dresses I’ve worn – the red mesh dress, my Jessica Rabbit sequin dress, and so many more:
Sadly my MOST FAVORITE red dress, a vintage David Meister dress with a keyhole neckline, which I wore to my Law School Formal I never took a picture in.
I did however keep the dress and if I ever fit into it again, I will most definitely be posing for pictures in it.
Not surprisingly, I’ve been eyeballing these dresses online:
But since we’ve established that I already have enough red dresses (not to mention my tax accountant will KILL me if I buy another dress), I will not be purchasing any new outfits, especially red ones.
But oh, the love in my heart for them. . .
