Black and Red Faux Wrap Dress

In photos, this dress looks red, but in real life, you can see small black squares all over it. The squares have rounded corners, making it seem slightly retro.

dress detail

It’s a faux wrap–doesn’t actually wrap–so I slip it on over my head. It’s great for work too and the poly jersey blend means it never wrinkles. When I wear this to work, I wear a cami underneath. For dinner or dancing, a plunging neckline seems appropriate.

It’s a thrifty outfit too. Between the gift, the clothing exchange, and the thrift store, I did well. I think the whole thing came in at under $30.

Of course, this outfit is part of Red and Black Week over at Sophistiqué Noir. Check out the other challenge posts on her site.

    This is like the exact dress I’m looking for, I it need for a costume. Does the dress happen to say a brand by chance?
