Summer Red

Top Forever 21, Skirt Nicole Miller, Heels Steve Madden, Necklace Bamboo Sky, Watch Michael Kors, Lipstick Revlon in Siren

Ever since I saw this dress on The Sartorialist, I have been wanting to wear red. I have always thought of it as more of a winter color, but my mind was completely changed when I saw that photo. Not having a dress in that shade of red, I went with an old sheer tank-top that was the perfect color. I got this Nicole Miller skirt at a designer consignment store in SF called Simply Chic. They have tons of beautiful designer things from Chanel bags to Burberry jackets for a fraction of the original price. I am in love with the mocha color of it and of course, it has pleats! 
Because it is so hot, I have found that wearing sheer fabrics is the key to beating the heat. Silky, chiffon tops and skirts are what I have been finding myself wearing a lot.
