BIG RED RIDING HOOD


Every time I wear red I think of Little Red Riding Hood. It is obvious that there is nothing "little" about me so I donned myself Big Red Riding Hood. lol I found this dress at my favorite thrift store. It is a bit big in the upper half but I love the cut. I am accumulating quite the pile for alterations. This fabulous belt was found at a vintage store in Deep Ellum. I went for a sort of monochromatic look by adding my red Jeffrey Campbell Two Timer wedges (sorry I didn't get any pictures of the back or sides of the shoes for you to see the wedge). 
Hope everyone had a great weekend! I received two new pairs of pants from ASOS curve that I can't wait to show y'all! Kiah



I got these cool earrings from my grandma's stash the last time I visited. They are a blend of blue and purple.


My daughter aka my photographer is in Arizona right now and I am missing her so much it hurts.
If you are looking at mommy's blog today I LOVE YOU and can't wait for you to come home!! kiss kiss

You are rocking that red, Kiah, Love that belt!

I love that dress, wish I could find dresses like that!

Prissy said...

Love the dress. It looks great on you! Dont you just HATE having a large pile of things that needs altering? My pile will forever grow since I dont have a seamstress at the moment.
Anyhoo, I love the JC's. Even though I cant see the sides, they look like the Lita from the front. Such a FAB color too!!!
