Red Dress Red Lips

 How do you like my cow sweater? Pretty moooooving, huh?
 I was watching New Girl, and Zooey Deschenel is such a cutie. In this particular episode, she was wearing a red dress that matched her lipstick. So I said to myself, "Self, you need to get a red dress that matches your lipstick. Then you will probably be as cute and charming as Ms. Deschenel." And follow my own advice I did. I found this cutie at American Eagle on sale, and it probably doesn't fit my teensy shoulders as well as it could, but damn if it didn't look cute in the dressing room mirror.
 I wish I had photographed it the first time I wore it, because I had a sparkly pin and it looked festive as could be.
 I hope you all had a good long weekend (unless you're in the real working world/don't work in a bank and didn't have MLK day off, in which case I hope you had a good normal weekend). I ate an entire pizza and 3 donuts. In my defense, it was over a couple sittings.

  1. That cow jumper is so stinkin' cute! I love kitschy prints like that!

  2. The red dress looks so good on you! The back is adorable it reminds me of one that I borrowed from Ashley :) Also the sweater is just too cute! I am a sucker for scenery sweaters, especially if they involve cute animals!

  3. Hi, I'm a new follower of yours :)
    That red dress is so cute! You could wear it in so many different ways. I might have to get one for myself.
    Also, that cardigan. . so wonderful.

    Have a splendid day. Check out my blog sometime, I'm just getting started :)

  4. Aww so cute!! The dress looks great on you and that sweater is adorable :)


  5. you look adorable! i really like your shoes, they're different than normal ol' saddle shoes, and they look so good with knee highs!

  6. Oh, I love the back of that dress. Also, I laughed aloud at your comment about "don't work in a bank." Both I and my parents are teachers and my boyfriend works with schools too, so we were all shocked that the rest of downtown was open for "Equality Day." (For some reason Wyoming calls it that instead of MLK Day. Supposedly for the fact we're the Equality State).

    1. Equality Day, I never knew that! How neat!

  7. This outfit is so wonderful, you look lovely in red! Love the cow sweater, too cute :)

    1. Haha I don't have cable at school, so I only watch reruns when I get home, but I'll be on the lookout for that one!
      And no problem, I enjoy your writing!

  11. This was from American Eagle! Surprise - I love it! I love having red dresses like Zooey in new girl too - I love the look on you. Your hair works with the look (pixie cut will never have me resemble Zooey Deschanel, but I am okay with that because I cannot handle long hair!)

    1. Yeah, I work there and their stuff is pretty hit or miss for me. But this one of course was a winner!
      I need to cut mine, it's getting hard to manage! I wish I could pull off a pixie!
