“A girl’s entitled to flaunt” – Sugababes, Red Dress

You know your life is boring when the most exciting moment of the day is when you ermagerdfinally find the full text version of an abstract that looks promising for your thesis. Really friends, that’s what my life is all about right now! I’m pretty much finished with two of the four main chapters in my literature summary and hope to finish the other two (which are already partially written out) by Monday so I can hand them in for feedback.

I also have good news to share! I received my grades yesterday and almost went through the roof when I saw that, at the third attempt, I finally passed my statistics class. I took three other exams which I all passed as well and I couldn’t be happier with my grades. This has been my best semester ever grade-wise and I’m really proud of myself for accomplishing a university career. Just one more semester and a thesis to go, and I’ll be a Sociology master.

So. Much. School talk!
To brighten up my not-so-much-of-a-life, I wear fancy dresses to sit at my desk. Bloggers will be bloggers! I recently added two fancy frocks to my closet, one as a pick-me-up before the exams and one as a gift to myself after. This red number from Reiss was the after-party. I fell in love with it in Dublin, but the price tag said “hell no”. I kept going back to it online and eventually it went on sale, but sold out before the price had lowered enough for me to justify the purchase. I must admit that I was pretty bummed about it, but I moved on and bought another dress from Ted Baker that I had also been eyeing since Dublin. Looking back, Dublin was pretty bad for my wallet. And then I went to Edinburgh. Even more bad for my wallet, because at 60% off I just couldn’t pass the dress up. I am a real bad sucker for pretty dresses and that is going to cost me one day. Until then: imma be fancy.

And to answer the infamous question: “can redheads wear red?”

Yes, we can!

  • You look amazing in red! That dress flatters your figure just perfectly. And those shoes! Adorable. Good job with your grades, you sure earned those new dresses!

  • That is such a gorgeous red dress! 🙂 I think you deserved a splurge or two after sitting your exams, and then getting such good grades! 🙂 Your wallet can take a hit or two to help celebrate such achievements! 🙂

    Plus that dress is a memento of your travels now too! 🙂

  • You look suppa fancy and I love it! I’ve come to the conclusion that I have too many nice dresses that are hiding away in my closet and they need to be worn, so I’ve started wearing them to work. I make them more casual with sweaters over them or cardigans! Congrats on your grads!! That’s awesome! 🙂

  • You definitely rock the red well! My mom is a redhead and she always stayed away… such a missed opportunity!

  • I have never understood why people think redheads can’t wear red! People with black hair wear black. I think this red dress looks awesome on you. I completely understand buying something pretty as a pick-me-up or as a reward to yourself.

    Hooray for the good school news too! It sounds like you’re getting a ton of work done on your thesis. It’ll all be done soon!

  • Dubbel en dik bewezen dat roodharigen mooi met rood staan! Uw kleedje is trouwens echt zo mooi! Love Reiss! <3 En uw andere outfits zijn ook allemaal super mooi. Ik ben officially jaloers op uw rode-outfits-styling-capaciteiten.

  • We are supposed to wear red today in the US to support women with heart disease and I looked through my closet realizing I have no red. While it looks good on you, I don’t think it works on me, but that could just be personal opinion, since my entire home lacks reds or oranges as well. We are a blue, green, grey family for sure.

  • you look amazing in this red dress!
