R is for~~~a Red dress

Have you ever worn a Red dress to a special occasion?

I have never worn a Red dress....ever. I have always wanted to, but

                #1 I could never find one that would look good on me
        And #2 Where would I wear it.?

I tend to choose black for special occasions...always black. What is it about Red that I find so appealing? I don't know, but maybe it's the fact that in a sea of black dresses a Red dress would definitely stand out.

I mean who wouldn't want an Audrey Hepburn moment?

Then again Red can be very in the movie Jezebel. Bette Davis' character wore a Red dress to a ball in which all the unmarried girls wore white. Against her Bo's wishes she stubbornly wore the dress and lost her love.

Veronica Lake made Red look sophisticated

Joan Crawford made Red look Vampy

This Red dress can make any girl feel Pretty.

                                                                      Red can also say
                                                              VA Va Voom!


                                                    And Red can be Sweet


One day I hope to find that one Red dress that is just perfect for me. I'll tell you one thing's going to be vintage!  Have a Great Day! Blessings, Joanne


  1. I love red dresses. I with you, one day I am going to wear a red dress and make a statement.

  2. Excellent article. Red (dress) can represent many things.
    Thank You.

  3. Ah, the red dress! I have never had one. Well, when I was younger and could actually wear one, my church was too conservative, we are Mennonites.I wasn't even allowed a veil or wedding rings. Alas, now that we are not so conservative anymore, I just find myself too old and fat! Shucks, missed it at every stage of my life! Now if you're next question is about spandex jeans, I'm there!

  4. I love wearing red. I used to have a wonderful red dress that I wore so often that I think I wore it out. Now I wear lots of red sweaters and tops of about every shade of red you can imagine. But I also wear a lot of black. Hope you find that perfect red dress some day! I loved your pictures and how they combined with the written content.

  5. LOVE red! Back in high school all I could think about was that I wanted to wear a red dress to my prom. I had it pictured down to the last detail. Amazingly, I found it - and I still believe it's the most beautiful dress I've ever owned. Fast forward 10 years later and that dress is not even close to zipping up - but I plan to keep it forever!

  6. beautiful photos of lovelu red dresses and i hope you find the right one soon

  7. I have never had a red dress. Many red tops through the years but no red dress. I think I would like one though.

  8. I have a red dress that I bought a few months ago and it is the most amazing dress I ever owned! I just want to wear it all the time, but there is no occasions to wear it too! Sigh!

  9. Hi, yes, I have a red dress and I love wearing it. Unfortunately, I bought it when I was several pounds lighter and can't wear it now, but maybe some day, I will be able to wear it again. Go ahead and buy one and wear it! Thanks for visiting my blog. Ruby

  10. Dear Joanne,

    May you and your loved ones be blessed this Easter weekend! May Christ’s message of eternal life fill you with love.

    ♥... In His Love, Kerrie

  11. OHHHH a Red dress is so much better than a little black dress. What great pics you picked!

  12. Red is my favorite color, and yes, I have worn a wonderful red dress before. Perhaps I should write a blog entry about it.

    I was single (divorced), in my 40's and dating a bachelor. We went to a party for his high profile company. He loved that I wore the dress and the impact it made. A few weeks later, the song "Lady in Red" came out. He called me and told me that he had just heard the song that summed up his feelings about me in the red dress. Romantic stuff!

    I still have the dress. It no longer fits, and he is still a confirmed bachelor. That is funny stuff!
