Red. It often leaves me

red seventies tunic dress with knee socks and long boots

Red. It's a colour I like to dabble with once in a while. We flirt, we hang out, we find ourselves together more and more often. Then red suddenly takes a disliking to me, it doesn't want to be seen with me in public and shuns me for a while. How sad it is that red just wont settle down as my trusty companion for good.

I found this wonderful tunic dress; it looks really red and bold up close but according to these pictures the colours are all merge into something resembling a slightly ruddier shade of nude from a distance. I guess it pays to stay at close proximity. The pattern is small, busy and really rather wonderful and ought to be admired. Now, I can't decide what my favourite thing about this tunic is, there are a number of delightful features.

The banding to the top of the sleeves to match the banding under the bust is such a cool feature which adds a whole lot of character. I love it. Do I have anything else in my wardrobe like it.... no, I don't think so. Plus the sleeves billow out a little towards the cuffs and they add a pinch of drama; they warrant a good amount of arm swishing to make best use of the generous fabric.

My preference for conservative dressing (which to be fair does seem to be limited to covering my chest) was challenged with this low-swept neckline but it does sit comfortably so I'll live with it and enjoy the change. Impressively, the fabric is so stretchy it's most amusing. It will ping right back which makes it a particularly serviceable material for a clumsy clot like me.

Knee socks and leather boots. Outfit complete.

These pictures were from late September, you can tell that Autumn hadn't really set in by the leafy green trees!
