The Holiday LRD


I don’t need much of an excuse to wear an lrd (little red dress), but I do like to save my little red dresses for holiday wear. Imagine my joy when I was able to scoop up this cute number from my vintage blogging buddy Norbyah. We might be close in height but definitely not in width. That’s one thing that makes vintage shopping harder on the curvy lady: the vintage sizes are usually more petite. In fact in this post, I’m beyone proud to say every clothing item–accessories like my earrings, tights, and bag excluded–is second hand BUT new to me! And, I’d like to say I find this entire outfit very fresh and definitely holiday worthy. Will you be wearing an LRD this holiday season? I’ve got a few more to share. Would you like to see them styled?




Some Holiday LRD Outfit Details:

The LRD–Norbyah, and some other awesome Hong Kong Fashion Bloggers, threw a swap in November. I got more than enough winter goods, including this little red dress. I hemmed it to show a bit more let–which totally personalized it for me.
(P)Leather Jacket–I got this at another swap a couple of years ago
Over-the-Knee Boots–this was another swap score at the Get Redressed one back in September
Beaded Clutch–Jakarta Spa Boutique
Earrings–mixmatched earrings from Ben’s at Jardine’s Bazaar (4th stall on the left)

    Lady!!! It looks fab!!! I love it hemmed, though I’m not as brave to wear it short like that…but you styled it perfectly! Love it and happy it has a new home with you.

    • Awww, thanks N! Isn’t it funny regarding the hem. I prefer this length and feel most comfortable in it. With dark tights I think it’s ok. And for some reason the otk boots seem to give me the illusion of more cover. I do love this new-to-me Norbyah dress! Love, Ann (Looking forward to pics with you tomorrow of another lrd!!)

    Wow…what a fabulous look!! I think you hit the nail on the head with that length…especially with those OTK boots! jodie

  • Twit twooo!
    You have nailed it here…. Sassy and sexy!
    I love the red on you…especially with the splashes and splodges of black and white.
    Very cute.
    Those OTK boots look amazing…..and all recycled too!? Even better!
    Up-cycling at it’s chicest.

    • Thank you Samantha. I’m starting to use the “twit twooo!” Love it!! I felt very excited the moment I put this dress on–it’s lost it’s waistband, so the belt is necessary, and the length has been shortened to right where I like it! Thank you for the s&s (sassy n sexy!). Love, Ann

  • Anna Parkes

    You have the best legs ever for these OTK boots! The whole get up is hot stuff and I love that your dress and lippy match x

  • Gorgeous and loving that everything is second hand! Love the way the bag picks up the polka dots on the dress. The whole look is fun, flirty and cool!

    • Thank you Jacqueline! It all kind of worked out to make a really cute outfit. At least that’s my opinion! I like how it all came together! Love, Ann

  • This is indeed a very good jacket. It brings pizzazz to every oitfit. Don’t ever get rid of it. Sooo good.

    This is another fun and funky little red dress. I love LRDs. Red is my favorite color, after all. The jacket and boots are fantastic and I want them!
