This red dress is one of my favorite items of clothing I own. It’s easy to throw on and look glam, while still feeling comfortable. I recently paired it with a golden metal fan handbag, gold, shimmery flats, and a beautiful crest necklace from my Alma Mater, the University of Michigan for a fun, romantic night out at Shanghai Terrace restaurant in Chicago with my husband.
During our dinner at The Peninsula Hotel’s Shanghai Terrace, which is consistently voted the best Chinese food in Chicago, I wore one of my favorite dresses, this red wrap apron style dress by Bobeau. I paired it with my golden glitz Tieks, and this stunning gold metal Asian fan handbag by From St. Xavier. During my time in Asia earlier this year, I picked up a gorgeous handmade fan much like the shape of this purse in Kyoto, so when I put on my red and gold look, I knew this gorgeous clutch, which can also be worn as a cross body, would complete my outfit.

The last time I wore this dress was in London, where I received a lot of compliments on it from random girls on the street, which is one of the best feelings haha, and I wanted to wear it again before the weather becomes too cold.
To style my hair, I follow the same steps I outlined in this hair tutorial video, but I now use this curling iron with interchangeable heads so I can vary up the size of my curls to give my curls a more natural look, and this powerful mini-travel blow drier by T3 which helps quickly dry my thick hair, without frying it. I also use this wide tooth detangling comb from Anthropologie to soak up extra water or product, and prevent breakage. It’s how I get my curls so big and bouncy!
