While I think any time of year is appropriate for red lace, I think it's extra acceptable during the holidays! If you're going to do a red dress, this is one to add to your cart ASAP.
The beautiful lace and comfortable fit means it MUST be a Kiyonna dress! This is one of their tried-and-true styles, of which I've worn in 3 colorways now. In fact, the red with the nude lining was one of the first dresses I shot professionally back in 2012! Bananas.
Kiyonna has this dress in a gorgeous plum on plum lining, a black on nude lining (a favorite of mine as well), navy on nude lining, and black on black lining. It's the perfect dress to have in your closet at all times for when a special occasion comes up – or if you just want to feel a little (or a lot) sexy!
If you're looking for a New Years dress or just want to add this beauty to your closet for any occasion, Kiyonna is having 25% off all dresses using code DRESSUP at checkout, now through 12/22/17. They also have $20 off purchase of $50+ using code SECRETSANTA through 12/25/17.
I was in Lexington for a dinner, so I met up with my photographer Emily Moseley to take these photos (and 2 other outfit phots coming soon) at The Summit. So much more has opened there since I moved away, and while I'm sad I can't be 5 minutes away from it like when I lived there, my wallet is probably better off. We did go into Meg C Jewelry Gallery though, where I oohed and aahed over pretty pieces of jewelry – or art – or both. A great place to stop for a last minute gift.
PS: This time of year can be lonely for a lot of people, or bring anxiety because of having to deal with toxic family members and such. If this isn't the most awesome time of year, don't worry – many others are in the same boat! I wrote this a couple of years ago when I was feeling particularly lonely.
