The Tale of a Red Dress...


"A blond in a red dress can do without introductions - but not without a bodyguard."


If your anything like me, you almost always buy a new dress for every occasion.
Usually its something glamorous or quite dressy and once the night is over, it climbs into the back of your closet and never sees light again.
Well i was determined to break the cycle and re-work my birthday dress 
into an everyday outfit i can wear out and about.

I took my 'Ladakh' party dress and gave it a make-over by dressing it down with my favourite 'Forever New' jumper, a buttoned up white shirt, my new shoes and some jewellery.

  7. A dress should never just be worn once (unless it's a wedding dress). If you love it, the worst thing is showing it only once! Glad you found another chance to wear your dress.
