red hot

sunglasses - Nasty Gal / dress - vintage, thrifted / belt - vintage, thrifted / shoes - Target

The title of this post isn't a reference to the delicious cinnamon candy, it's simply declarative - this dress is red, and today, it was hot. So hot, in fact, that not only could I not stand to wear a single piece of jewelry, I couldn't even manage to wear my sunglasses for more than a few minutes before my whole face felt ready to slide off in a sweaty puddle. Gross. Supposedly the mercury hit 102 yesterday, but I can assure you, as we dragged our bags through the rush-hour crowds on the Metro yesterday afternoon, it felt much, much hotter.

I owe many of you a belated thanks for your Hasbeen-esque shoe recommendations from a few weeks ago - I wound up picking up these cute platforms from Target, and although they probably won't come with us for our next traveling stint (they're pretty comfortable, but they're not that comfortable) I am planning to wear and enjoy them every day until we leave.

Great outfit. I know what it's like to be so hot you can't stand to wear jewellery. I like to wear alot of pendant necklaces, but here in Australia when it gets so hot they stick to your skin. Gross indeed ...

What a great dress! I love red dresses, and this one looks cool and comfortable. And I'm with you on losing accessories as the temperature climbs - the hotter it gets here, the simpler my outfits.

Ugh, I hate it when my face gets so sweaty that my glasses slide off.  Seriously a pet peeve of mine.

This dress is great though - wonderful thrifting find.

Yeah, it was sweltering in Chicago last week, too, and it was tough to wear much of anything other than a sundress. I adore this red one, and it looks fabulous with those sandals (I just bought a pair for myself, coincidentally, and I heart them too). :)

A while back, I asked if I could share your blog on my blog and I finally got around to doing it. If you're interested in seeing it, here's the link: http://smile93.wordpress.com/2011/06/14/a-recommendation/

Let me know if you have any issues with the post.

I think, I just fell in love - with that super cute dress! You don't want to send it over to me by any chance!?
