Red Lace & Leopard

red lace dress + leopard heels

This past week, my boyfriend and I started a weekly meeting to catch up on blogging things. It might seem silly to some, but we both have very busy schedules, so finding time to take photos on the weekends and discussing other ideas for the blog was really really helpful. Plus it is fun because each week we are going to try out a new place to eat, grab a drink have the meeting and then go thrifting!

After meeting at Pizza Luce, we headed to the nearby Goodwill and I found two dresses perfect for Valentine’s day! This red lace dress is a great choice for date night paired with black opaque tights and I opted for something a bit more wild and fun – leopard heels. A classic pair of black pumps or even a monochromatic look with red pumps would also be perfect. This is why I love shoes so much – they always seem to be the finishing touch that can really change the way an outfit or dress looks! I think we have decided to stay in, cook a nice meal and watch some movies, but I still love to get dressed up for Valentine’s Day, even if I’m staying in!

i want a meeting with someone to talk about blog stuff! it’s a one-woman show around here (my dog is the worst assistant ever, but he’s so cute that i won’t fire him;) so i love that idea! plus you get to try out new places and stuff. great way to reconnect as a couple, too. LOVE that dress. gorgeous, gorgeous.

Hahahahahaha! Emma is also not a very good assistant, in fact, she gets upset when I’m working on my computer πŸ˜‰

What a perfect dress, and even better thrifted. I love it when I see bloggers styling thrifted pieces as it is an inspiration for me. Many of my clothes are from clothing swaps or thrifted too so thank you for sharing this lovely dress today. Your date with your hubby sounded sweet, and your photos and outfit look amazing. Have a great Valentines day!

Yes, thrifting has been a huge part of my life for a long time, and it is so hard for me to spend a lot on any one item when I know I can find something similar while thrifting later on!

Your red lace dress is gorgeous and perfect for V-Day. This is such a beautiful, girly, romantic look Rachel. And of course red+leopard are always meant to be (I paired them together, yesterday, also).

What a great find! That red is absolutely gorgeous on you and the way you styled it is perfect. I love the idea of meeting with the boyfriend to discuss ideas and kind of make a “date” out of it….I’m going to have to suggest this to my man πŸ™‚

I think I’ve said this one hundred times, but you are always so extra stunning in red! This dress was an amazing thrift find and I love how you styled it in a way that’s still realistic for winter (with a coat ;)). Gorgeous!

And your meetings with your boyfriend sound so fun! Trey has finally started to get more interested in my blog and it’s been great to bounce ideas off of him.


Thanks darling! My boyfriend actually has told me that the last few shoots – he loves me in red, so I think I need to start wearing more of it lol πŸ™‚ Also yes – it was VERY cold without a coat, but wanted to show off the fun sleeves! If I wear this on Saturday, there will definitely be a coat involved haha πŸ˜‰
