Can we firstly take a moment to appreciate how hilarious/straight to the point that title is? Can we also take a moment to appreciate the fact that I may have picked this dress out purely based on the fact that it makes me feel a little bit like the lady in red emoji [insert lady in red emoji here for good measure].
But jokes aside – although let’s be serious, I’m 100% not joking… – red is not a colour that features heavily in my wardrobe. Burgundy? Yes. Maroon? So much of it. But pillar-box red? This is a rarity, and one that won’t be for much longer because I have fallen hook, line and sinker for this Closet London beauty and have spent far longer than I care to admit trawling ASOS/Missguided/Boohoo/[insert your own choice of online shopping website here] looking for more bright red pieces to add to my
boring monochrome wardrobe!
Apart from the stunning, vibrant red colour, the other thing that I adore about this dress is the cut. I am all about the bell sleeves – I mean, you know this by now right? – and the skater style dress as I find it more flattering for my shape, so this dress has quickly become my new go-to for when I want to feel
sassy as f**k really good in myself.
And that completes the look. In case you couldn’t tell from my mild fan girl, I really do love this dress. But what I love most is that it finally pushed me out of my comfort zone, and d’you know what? I actually really enjoyed it. Whilst I won’t be popping to Tesco for my grocery’s in bright, pillar box red on a daily basis, I am definitely thinking of ways that I can work it subtly into my wardrobe.
I love this dress, red is definitely your colour.
Lots of love,
Angie SilverSpoon London
Thanks so much lovely!

Thank you so much gorgeous girl!
I'm just like you Elle! Never really been to fond of red but since I started blogging, it's definitely grown on me! You look beautiful in this outfit!
Thanks so much hun, so pleased you like it!
You should wear red more often! It really suits you! xx
Thanks so much, I'm so pleased!
Your hair is perfect!
Ah thank you so much!
That is such a stunning colour, so Autumnal and Christmassy too! Coming to think of it I think I have every colour in my wardrobe apart from something RED, I'll have to change that! x http://www.coffeeatmidnight13.blogspot.co.uk/
Isn't it such a lovely colour, I'm definitely looking for more!
So pretty! (As per usual m'dear!) Love the dress and to be honest? That is one of my favourite emojis. You should wear red more as you rock the heck out of it!

Ahh thank you my lovely, so glad you like it. Haha best emoji, right?
This dress is adorable! You look stunning 🙂
Thanks so much Alexandra, so pleased you like it!
I feel like our wardrobes must be the EXACT opposite – I have white to navy in every shade and then pillar box red and a specific shade of green thrown in to mix it up! So I LOVE this colour!! I'm never convinced of the bell sleeves, but I think that's because I spend most of my days rolling up whatever sleeves I am wearing. Colour is divine tough.
Where did you shoot? The raw red bridge is such a great back drop!
Hey love, this is in Rotherhithe where I live, such a nice peaceful part 🙂 So glad you like the dress!
Gorgeous lady in red! That dress is perfect on you and I'm loving it paired with the black bag! So beautiful!
Thanks so much lovely, so pleased you like it!
Red looks great on you. xx
Thank you lovely!
Loooove this dress! you should definitely wear red more often!
Thanks so much Lee, I think I will 🙂
Wow you totally need to buy more red things as it's definitely your colour. You look gorgeous!
Thanks so much Sophie, so pleased you think so 🙂
LAAAADDDYY IN REEDDDDDDDD – classic song, always. Pillarbox red is so nice, I rarely wear it myself except for on the lips but it's so striking on you lady!
Britton Loves | Lifestyle Food Beauty
Haha you are the first to comment on the song reference… I love that!! Thanks so much love, so pleased you think so 🙂
Elle, I'm so glad the line found you because you look stunning in red! The skater style of the dress is definitely a selling point for me!
May | THE MAYDEN | Bloglovin'
Ah thank you so much May, such a lovely comment!!
I definitely prefer your dress to that song 😉 Love the backdrop near Shadwell Basin, I used to run around there and should probably get back to that!
Suze | LuxuryColumnist
Haha me too 😉 Ah this is actually the Rotherhithe side through the river but love Shadwell Basin!
Such a stunning dress! you look gorgeous. Happy I found this blog. XO, Ellese
Thanks so much lovely, so pleased you found me!
Gorgeous dress, red really suits your hair colour and looks lovely on you! So glad you did a twirling pose – you are 100% lady in red emoji!
Haha you gotta do the twirl right? Love that emoji!
Gorgeous dress!!! You look so pretty in red!!! 🙂
Thanks so much Stephanie!
So gorgeous! I definitely think red is a colour for blondes, although maybe I'm biased! I think it's a super sexy colour though x
Martha Jane | http://www.marthajanemusic.com
Totally agree, I am actually loving the red!!
wow you look beautiful
This Girl Loves Chic xx
Thanks so much lovely!
Wow check you out lady! The red suits you so well, such a statement colour! I love the bell shaped sleeves and the skater style, it's very 70's! 🙂
Ah thank you lovely, so pleased you like it!
Bell sleeves really does make a huge difference! I guess it's the way the arm looks and how the bell softens the frame 🙂
Real Life Nerd // http://www.vivienekok.blogspot.com
Yes, totally agree with that!
I think you look amazing in red.
I mostly have just black dresses with a few summer dresses in more nude like colours, but I have been thinking about extending my colours to a few wine pieces, moving more out of my comfort zone.

Thanks so much Angela, so pleased you like it!
Love this dress, I have a vintage Jaegar with gold buttons on the shoulders that reminds me of this-the cut is the same, such a classic style. You look gorgeous, lady x
Thanks so much Vicki, so pleased you like it!
Really liked your outfit in contrast with the cool, modern background. 🙂

Thanks so much Assia 🙂
Red suits you so so good. You look really pretty (;
I like the title of your post, Lady in Red is definitely the perfect title for this post 😉 Red suits you and this dress looks beautiful on you! xx
I love this dress. It looks absolutely gorgeous on you! I think adding a necklace like this would make it look amazing too! http://www.stylewear.ie/store/p39/Rhinestone_Triangle__Necklace.html
But the delicate necklace you wore with this dress looks great as well.
What a stunner of a dress. Plus, YAAS to sleeves! As much as other Tesco shoppers would definitely appreciate this gorgeous piece, this dress is created for champagne brunches with friends 😉
Elle you look seriously incredible in red! The lady in red emoji would be jealous! I'm a huge fan of the bell sleeve trend at the moment- I think it makes pieces look really expensive 🙂
Wow elle, red suits you well
You should wear red more often
I love the flowy details too

Red is definitely one of the more daring shades out there & I don't think I own one single item of clothing in this kind of red either. Fair play for stepping outside of your comfort zone because it really suits you so well. You look amazing & much better then the red lady emoji haha x
Beauty with charm
Well, you say you don't wear much red like this. But it really suits you, so you should DEFINITELY do it more. It's a gorgeous colour on you. And so simply styled with the black details. Gorgeous x
You look gorgeous dear!

Wow, you look gorgeous! The colour suits you so well and the dress complements your figure! Super blog, just found you, and most definitely following you! xx

You look amazing in red you should definitely wear it more often! I love the style of this dress and it looks so pretty on you 🙂 xx
This is so gorgeous! I love how the sleeves are bell-shaped just like the dress itself.

Red is such a lovely colour on you!
Liz | LotsofLoveLiz ♥
This is such a lovely colour on you and the cut is very flattering. I love Closet for work dresses x
I totally agree – burgundy is so frequent in my wardrobe, but a proper, bright red hardly ever features – this dress looks gorgeous, I especially adore the shoes! x
