I’ve always worn lots of color, but never much red specifically. Yet red is everywhere this fall – especially in fetching jewel-tone shades like burgundy, merlot, garnet and claret. Recently, I purchased on this M Missoni dress, and I haven’t experienced a single moment of buyer’s remorse. I’ve already worn this dress with wedges, platform heels, and knee-high boots, and opted for black booties for these photos. I love it on its own when it’s warm outside, but it also works under a fab leather coat or can be layered over a thin turtleneck or long sleeve shirt in the winter. Of course I agonize over big-ticket clothing items, but I also think about how much use – and joy – I’ll get from a single purchase. To me, an expensive dress I can wear again and again in multiple ways is a far better investment than a less-pricey item I’ll wear only once or twice.
