I like to look good and also: original. Ordering two similar dresses is normally a no-go for me. But I made an exception for the Ruby Sherwood. I already have the green version and am so in love with it, that I told a friend who was also eyeing 'her' that 'if they have it in another color I am going to order it'. Much to my surprise: they do! So the red one is on its way to me now. This dress has everything you want for a winter outfit. It is on the expensive side, but the quality is very good. It is warm, it is comfortable, it is lined greatly with the velvet and on the buttons and I like the fact it has a side zipper instead of on the back. Despite being comfy it is still cute and can be dressed up sexy too. I dress it up with stockings and then high pumps or high-heeled boots, add a leather belt or small one, depending on what I want that day. Going grocery shopping has me grabbing my flats or lower boots and ankle boots are a possibility too. The dress is very long for me (I am only 5.2"/1.58cm, so if you're tall you're going to love this one.) I have actually kept the length, because I wear it mostly with long black boots...and I don't know...for some reason this dress can be worn very long without it becoming dull. Two of the same dresses in my closet...who would've thought...
