Dress, Toast // Clutch, vintage
I love red. I really, really love red. When I was a kid, my mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday, and I said "red". I have mixed feelings about Valentine's Day and don't really celebrate so much as use it as an excuse to dress up/spoil whoever I'm dating/wear red. By all rights the color should clash terribly with my hair, but to be honest I think it's one of my best; even if it wasn't, I'd still wear it. I'm not quite sure what I'll be doing on Valentine's weekend (I might be going to the Opera with my paramour, and if so, you'll certainly hear about it) but whatever I get up to, I'm going to wear this dress for at least part of it! I've had it ages and never had the right occasion to wear it. A knee-length red velvet dress is difficult to just throw on, you know, so I'm taking this Hallmark-sponsored shot while I have it.
