HOW A WOMAN OVER 50 ROCKS A COCKTAIL DRESS

Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is ready for the red carpet in this one shoulder red chiffon dress 5

I mentioned earlier that I have a couple of trips in September and one in October. All of these trips will have events where I need to have a dressy outfit, and I thought some of you might have similar events planned. So, I’m going a cocktail dress that I plan on taking with me for times when I need to have cocktail attire.

I don’t know about you, but my closet is not filled with cocktail-ready dresses. The few that are in my closet aren’t in style now, or they no longer fit. That seems to be the story of my life. Lol! When I save an item I love, it never seems to work once I’m ready to wear it again. But, I found this dress fits perfectly, and I think it will be perfect.

This One-Shoulder ChiffonShort Dress in Scarlett is stunning!!! I think this gorgeous red dress is CHIC and makes a huge statement. The dress doesn’t show any lumps and bumps, which is always a big plus. The dress is also comfortable, and because it is a one-shoulder, I don’t worry about it slipping down like a strapless dress. The strapless bra I use is from SPANX, and I find that it is as comfortable as a strapless bra can be. The dress I’m wearing is a size 1, and it fits me great.

I think this Artistisan Handbag Tote is so eye-catching! The tote looks great with jeans, and I can see myself carrying this a lot in the fall with rust, burgundy, and dark brown. The tote holds a ton of items, including my laptop.

My granddaughter took these photos for me, and she was playing around with different effects. Here is me walking into an event and seeing someone else wearing the same dress. Lol!

My platform Coach sandals are gorgeous, and they look great with jeans as well as dresses. They run true to size, and I’m wearing my normal size 9.

    Love the dress! I wouldn’t have considered a one-shoulder w/out seeing it on you – but I’d go w/dressier shoes & a small dressy bag 🙂

    Pretty dress, but off the shoulder dresses are a no for me! You’re rocking it though!
    Hope you’ll do a winter version when the time comes!

      I usually wear a 10-12 in a dress, so that is equivalent.

    Are you leggings as still in style this winter?

    Also, wrote you a couple of days ago about trying to find the video showing how to use an elastic belt to hold a sweater in place in the front of pants rather than tucking it in….
