Little Red Dress and a Houndstooth Coat

It’s a title I’ve used before, Little Red Dress, this time with a completely different style. My dress from the Fabulous over 40 Model Search was ultra glamorous! This one is classy for everyday and yet can be dressed up to go to a birthday party (like my birthday 🙂 ) and a romantic Valentine’s dinner.

I’m celebrating 66 years!

 It’s only a number. I don’t act my age. The best is yet to come!

I bought this little red dress at Hudson’s Bay during their Boxing Day sales. The front is a very soft faux suede and I love the fancy faux suede stitching, gives it a bit of a western vibe. In this bitter cold weather, I’m wearing warm bamboo tights from Drizzle and Shine. I won’t need those when the weather warms up someday, but for now, they are perfect.close up

Oops! Caught in the act of refreshing my red lipstick!

Houndstooth coat is thrifted and takes me from the house to the car to the restaurant.

The little black heart purse was a gift from my daughter Jean for my 60th birthday.

      Thank you so much Jean! I always mention you when I tell people why I am vegan. At 66 I’m healthy and feel energetic! But the best feeling that being vegan gives me is peace in my heart. ❤ For that I have you to thank! 🙂

      WOW!! Thank you so much for your kind words Ute! The best part of my birthday was having my family over for a birthday dinner and receiving phone calls and messages (including these wonderful comments) from friends near and far! Makes me feel loved and that’s the BEST gifts – love and kindness! ❤

  9. Aww happy Birthday Carmen , I need to look at your ID as I think you look nowhere near that age!! The dress is so pretty with the stitching and I like the tights and booties with it. A girl has to look her best and that includes checking her lipstick! The coat is fabulous , so dressy and I love the purse tying everything together. Have a beautiful Valentines day Dear, lots of extra hugs, Terri xo.

      You’re so sweet, what a lovely compliment! I really do have fun with fashion. Hearts are one of my favourite things (perhaps because I was born in February) so I have a lot of heart jewellery and clothes, as well as home decor! I’ll show some in my next post.

      I wait for the day we can go for tea and have a nice chat to catch up on our in-person friendship! Perhaps another leisurely stroll around the neighbourhood! 🙂

      In the meantime, stay warm my dear!
