This is the third post in a series about styling a red dress I purchased at WalMart for $7.97. If you missed the first two posts, they are here and here.

I’ll start with my red and navy combos:

Tried to get creative by adding a yellow purse. Oh my! Not all ideas are good ones.

This looks like I am ready for the 4th of July πŸ˜‰

Next, I went to black:


Like this one with black the least, but as I have said before, just try stuff.

After looking at all these pictures, I think I need to change up the shoes. I have short legs, and having shoes that come up my foot seems to emphasize that. See how much better these shoes look:

Still learning! πŸ˜‰ Β Guess I need to go shoe shopping!

Well, that’s the end of my Lady in Red series. Here is a recap of all the looks. Which one do you like best? The first one is number one, etc. Thanks!

  1. Look in your closet before you buy new shoes. You have a pair of blue peep-toe pumps, maybe with a sling back, I think that you wore with Ol’ Blue. Trade them out to wear with #11? You have nude pumps and flats, great with everything and they elongate your leg appearance.

    All the outfits with black look fine from the hem up and with the black pumps, but for fall they’ll be really cool unless your husband’s school plays football with Cedartown.

    I like #2 and #6. White sweaters are a cool look for summer. White sandals maybe with #8?

    1. Jean, you are so right! Thank you. I am going to try your shoe suggestions, and will post the results, if I can find time to put the dress on and take pictures again! πŸ™‚

  2. Liking #1 for fall and #8 for summer (change red shoes to #2 or #7). Actually red & black could work for summer without the animal scarf (thinking about Talbot’s new summer catalog showing red & black items ?)

  3. Hi Susan! Well, my choice is #1 but switching out the leopard scarf for the necklace in #4. I also have short legs. Heck, everything I got is short, since I’m only 5’2″ tall! So I have noticed that whatever shoes I wear need to be nude and as open across the instep as possible! So I would also wear #4 with nude pumps or “delicate looking” sandals. Remember paper dolls, where you could switch outfits easily #babyboomer.

    1. Oh Marie, just mentioning paper dolls reminds me of so many hours of my childhood! Maybe I have just never outgrown that desire to change outfits. πŸ™‚ And I am so thankful for all my readers’ comments. You all give really good suggestions, and I feel like I learn so much from you.

  4. I think most of these look nice, but I especially like 1, 8 & 11. I really don’t care for 9, something about that shirt just doesn’t seem to work. This “red” series has been a real reminder to shop my closet for combinations.

    1. Those are the ones I like best also! And I also hated #9, but hoping someone could learn from it. It really is amazing how many combinations you can make from what is in your closet…well at least in my closet, because I have a LOT of sweaters. LOL
      Thanks so much for your comments.

  5. A little red dress is nearly as versatile as al LBD. Great styling inpsirations. Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style linkup party.
