Red Red Red, with Birds and Leaves

Home late again - haircut!
Get ready tomorrow to see my grey and white temples! I don't have time (maybe Sunday) to dye my hair, so it's gonna have to do in my natural state. But for now - this is a really RED dress.

I have two Calvin Klein dresses (this yellow one is the other - I need to wear it again soon), both purchased at Winners before I went "Secondhand First", and I love them both. The quality is very good, and they just fit my body well.
I also appreciate the nice design details, like the shaped shoulders (very Star Trek!) and the pleats on the front and back of this dress.
Also - zipper! I last wore this red stunner here in April with stripes.

The stuff:
I should do a "Week of Shoes That L Hates", heh heh. He really dislikes chunky shoes, preferring the pointy-toed, more delicate "lady shoes" (like yesterday's). I like all shoes, pretty much. I last wore these ones here with a bloody jacket in September 2013. I actually got rid of that jacket - too much bad mojo from when I fell off the bus last year. I fall enough as it is.

Browny bling:
I had intended to wear these new-to-me vintage earrings with the nearly-matching necklace that I got cheap at another vintage fair, but when I pulled the necklace out last night, a couple of the leaves had fallen off and I couldn't find them. Aw, sad, into the donate bin you go. Instead I filled in the dress neckline with this cool swallow necklace that Mom gave me a couple of years ago.

Dress (Calvin Klein), shoes (Faith Hi Low Reumah), belt/buckle (Shi Studio; the buckle is thrifted), necklace (gift from Mom), leather cuff (Hollyhock, thrifted), leaf cuff (About Tine), earrings (vintage 60s).

  6. Let me just get this out of the way: a ginger in red = ONE HOT TOMATO. You look delish, I love the look head to toe- and you're right -that dress FITS. Love the shoes but I can see why a gent doesn't. WE ladies like clunkies, and they like the pointies. Sizzle on, Madame Loveapple!

  7. You made me smile with that comment about having a week dedicated to the shoes your hubby hates :)
    And you 're looking as pretty as ever in that red dress. Calvin Klein dresses do tend to have a good fit.
