The Sweater Dress

The Sweater Dress - All Red For Christmas

There are two things I love about the holiday season: the sweater dress and finally getting to wear red. So it's always a huge plus when I find a red sweater dress :))

Initially, my inspiration came from a combination of this Trina Turk dress, and this Givenchy cape. Together, they make a perfect winter-y holiday dress.

I had already finished shooting my blog photos for the day, and went to make myself a much-needed cup of coffee. But we can't control when inspiration strikes, so I ran back to shoot this outfit real quick. Unfortunately, I left my milk heating on the stove and nearly burned the apartment down (ok not nearly, but it smelled bad for hours!)

You might remember this dress from last year's Friendsmas blog post. That's what I love about a good sweater dress, it can be worn forever. This time, I put mine on backwards and paired it with a red belt to keep the mood all red ;)

The flared sleeves made this dress look so much like a cape, and the Ferragamo belt helped as well. Since it's reversible it can be worn as black and red, which is a great deal in my opinion ;)

I am in love with this red color and wanted to keep it going. Incidentally, the sweater dress matched perfectly with my shoes!
