Today, I’m sharing a little Valentine’s Day inspiration with you. Presenting 21 Red Dresses for Valentine’s Day and beyond. Each of these beautiful red dresses would be great for Valentine’s but red isn’t just for Valentine’s Day, of course.

Everyone needs a great red dress in their closet. This post shares all the reasons you need a red dress in your closet.  It’s a power color, exudes confidence and more. This dress was love at first sight!  I loved the simple shape, cut in shoulders and bow.  I don’t always love a bow, but this one is perfect.  Also, my smile might look a bit frozen in some of these photos because it is!

The temperature dropped big time the night before we photographed these.  Today, it is supposed to be in the 70s and raining!  That’s Texas weather for you! I paired my red dress with my favorite black bag that is great for a luncheon or night out.  The leather is such a great quality and even has a gold chair if you wanted to carry it on your shoulder.  The beautiful Chinoiserie watch was a gift from my parents and is sold out but I also love the solid black and the solid white. Each of these are on my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Her.

Be sure to send the link to that post to the men in your life with hints for their Valentine! The boutique below has dresses for you no matter the weather on Valentine’s Day where you live.  I have this long sleeved ruffle beauty.  It is so flattering and the ruffle detail is so feminine.  I also love this dress with the pleat and lace detail.  I might just have it in my cart… This year we are celebrating Valentine’s Day together twice!  A volunteer organization my husband is a member of is having a wives luncheon so I’ll definitely be wearing this dress.  Then we’ll go to dinner after our middle daughter’s soccer game on Valentine’s Day.  I try to never miss a game!  One, I love watching her play and two, the play is so physical at this level, I want to be there. When I wear red or anytime I want to have a pop of red gloss, I wear this Poppy Shimmer Gloss.  It is a super flattering shade of red that looks good on all skin tones. Also, because I am also a Beautycounter consultant, I’ll send you a free gift when you enter my name as you consultant when you place any Beautycounter order of $50 or more!  Two other Beautycounter products I’m loving you will you are part of this Anti-Aging Spa Facial at Home I shared a few weeks ago. I’d love to know your favorite red dresses below!  When you leave comment you are automatically entered into the weekly beauty box giveaway all month! Also, thank you so much to all of you that took the Reader Style Survey!  The winners of a $200 electronic gift card are: K Morgan H. and Reanne D.  Please send me an email to claim your prize!
