As you may have figured out, I like to be inspired by a particular item and then find variations on a theme.  Well, I was toodling around on Nordstroms and saw this adorable Eliza J Seamed Drop Waist Dress and thought...that would be fun.  A little red dress post.  Now this dress would clearly look best on my readers with a longer waist - but I will endeavor to find dresses to fit a variety of body types.  So let's shop.  But first!  The inspiration.
And now - onto the picks.  I'm sticking with cocktail numbers here.  Envisioning things you could wear to nice cocktail parties or maybe weddings, nothing too formal.  Maybe a couple of work appropriate numbers will slip in, you never know.  Also, as I usually do, I'm trying to keep the prices pretty reasonable.  Or at least have a range of prices!  
Issa Fire Red Draped Front Silk Dress at Stylebop ($409 - splurge of the post - available up to size 16).
ASOS Midi Dress with off shoulder at ASOS ($46.55 - I love the bandage details and its sexy as hell.)
Bridge Red Fitted V-neck Dress in Red at Reiss ($240 after sale)
Adrianna Papell Lace Bodice Fit and Flare Dress in Lipstick at Nordstroms ($158 - if you're not over lace.)
The Crisscross Dress in red at Victoria's Secret ($49.99 - yeah, I know, I know.)
Strapless fit and flare dress from the Limited ($47.94 after sale.)

Hope you all enjoy these options.  There's definitely a couple in here that I would like to have in my closet.  Oops.  Have fun shopping and remember that red pairs beautifully with gold or silver or other metallic shoes.  And would be really interesting with purple jewelry, if you wanted to try something different.
