Red dress, roof access


On Saturday, I found out that I once again have roof access. For those of you who have never lived in New York, this means that instead of being locked off the huge amount of outdoor space on top of your building, you can access said space and sit outside. This would be equivalent to having 20 acres in the suburbs.

It also means you have a great big space where you can set up your tripod and take photos.


I got this cute French Connection dress on sale at Lord & Taylor a few weeks ago. My closet is a study in black and white, so this lipstick red dress was a little bit different for me. (Admittedly, I also tried on the dress in a quieter blue, but they didn't have my size).


I love tailored pieces, but it's not always easy to find ones that fit. This dress is a stretch cotton, so it hugs the body really nicely (and is comfortable, too).

I wonder if they have it in black . . .

That dress has a very classic look! And the colour looks great, expecially in contrast to your surroundings.
And that must be a fnatcastic location to literally have above your head!
Great shoes too.
Thnaks for the lovely comment. That dressing up box you described sounds fantastic!

Beautiful photos. I wish I had roof access. If I touch that door, an alarm goes off.

Thanks for your comment the other day! The colour and fit of this dress is fantastic. Having spent many years as a waitress when I was younger, I have an aversion to black that I'm only just getting over. It's good to see people who wear a lot of black move into the realm of colour!

I love how red always pops with all-black wardrobes. The lipstick is fantastic too!
