Red Obsessed

There are two critical fashion staples that I don't own: a versatile black handbag and a killer red dress.  Shocked?  Don't be.  I'm a perfectionist, and I gravitate to colorful accessories.  So ... that makes it tough to find a great black bag when I usually prefer the style in whatever other color the designer is offering.

As for red dresses ... ugh.  The combination is so easy to get it wrong.  I hate tomato red (too much orange), hate brick red (too much brown), hate pinky red (looks too cheap), and even with the right red, if the cut is wrong you can look like you're trying too hard ... at the wrong thing.

Now this, ladies and gentlemen, gets my attention: a super-hot RAOUL Wallis gown from Bloomingdales.  It's truly red but doesn't scream, it's soft, with cool overtones — and the cut is flawless.  The draping is stunning and that slit ... sexy as hell.  As my darling Joel would say, SOLD!
