Fashion Friday - Firey Red!

Nothing says stop or smoking like a hot red dress! Over the last few years I have slowly been incorporating more red into my wardrobe. For some reason, I never gave it a second thought. But now, bam, red is hot, it is smoking, it is here I am world! I love red on nails, although the nails have to be short, no long red nails please, that isn't so very chic. 
Isn't there just something so classy about a short red nail like this?


For my Friday Fancies, which is linked up over at Long Distance Loving,
I posted two smoking hot outfits.


First, for a fancy night out or a cocktail party and second a casual outfit that says look at me world,
here I am in all my red goodness!

red dress!

Here is the second outfit!

casual red


Like I have been saying I have been trying to post a few more photos up of my own outfits. My first outfit I worn on Sunday, yes in California, it was warm enough to wear sandals. Without knowing what this week's Friday Fancies would be either, I would my red nail polish and red headband. 


And I love this Pinterest Inspiration, which remember is Pinspiration!



For work I put the slip under the dress and let it hang just enough for the lace to show.



The dress is from Old Navy, the boots were from JCPenny, the belt is from H&M and the slip was from Goodwill for $4, bought just yesterday!


Here is another Pinspiration outfit!




And my look!
I love boot socks a lot recently, have any of you tried them? 
Hope you all have a great weekend and enjoyed today's fashions. 
xoxo, Meg

I love short red nails as well. Too much red can be over the top, but just the right amount is so chic. Love your red headband and nails. Just perfect.

I am in love with red right now as well and need to start buying pieces for my closet. Your slip looks so cute peeking out from your dress, the perfect splash of lace for a super cute feminine look. And, I'm pretty sure we have matching belts!

Kerri said...
