Red is definitely my favourite colour, it looks really dramatic against my pale skin and dark hair and the majority of my favourite dresses have a scarlet hue! I wore this outfit a few weekends ago when Mark and I went to his parents' house for dinner and I got so many compliments on it. Believe it or not, this dress was from Tesco although it looks much more expensive in my opinion. I usually wear it layered over a top but I actually prefer this dressier look. I kept the styling simple with my beloved leopard print belt and pointed heels. For me, the focus was all on the gorgeous colour and that (universally flattering) square neckline...

I bought Mac's Ruby Woo lipstick when I came back off holiday (I can't believe it has taken me so long to invest!) and this was it's first outing. I was slightly concerned about the matte formula but Lush's Mint Julips and some lip balm ensured that it applied flawlessly. I kept the rest of my make up simple, focusing on flawless skin and strong eyebrows (I promise I will be sharing my love of my Sleek brow kit very soon!) I rarely brush my hair but I was craving soft waves so dug out my hairbrush and brushed out my curls, resulting in a 1920s style bob.
I prefer my skirts swooshy so this one ticked all the boxes. I am a massive fan of anything that can skim over my ever-growing stomach and make my waist look smaller and the pleats make this look so elegant. I definitely need more 1950s style dresses and skirts in my wardrobe, I'm kicking myself for not picking up the black and grey versions of this dress!
