It is the Tadashi Shoji Lace Sheath dress in peppermint, which is a bright red color. It's the perfect shade of red actually, from the stand point of both the shade and the brightness. I had an event to go to and decided at the last minute that none of my existing cocktail dresses would work lol. So I went to Nordstrom and this was the first dress I tried on! I had actually seen this dress online before I went to Nordstrom, but I didn't think it would be as perfect as it turned out to be. I'm so glad I have it now, because it is the perfect cocktail dress that would be appropriate for many occasions. It's gorgeous and it fits very well. I highly, highly recommend you getting this dress even if you have no occasion to wear it to in the near future. Just buy it, and hide it in your closet!
I feel like the Nordstrom pictures make it look more orange than it looks in person. Maybe that's my monitor setting. But in person it is a true red.
I ended up getting this dress in size 0. I also tried on size 2 in black, which could have worked as well. It had slightly more room in the waist and hips so it's probably just a matter of personal preference. I decided I wanted the red one, and size 0 was the only one they had left. So I went with it. The lace is stretchy anyway, so it's still very comfortable.
Here's the black/nude one. It's cute too and definitely a classic. But red seemed younger and more fun to me.
So here's the red one in size 0 on me:
The lace detail on this dress is so pretty, and I love the wrap around waist detail which is super flattering:
There's really not anything I would change about this dress! It even comes in regular and petite sizes (I got regular size). It's priced at $228 which is fair. I think it's worth every penny but of course that's always subjective. The style of this dress is such that it would be appropriate for a holiday party or something more dressy, but it could also work for just a date night. That's why I say just buy it! You will find an occasion for it. =)
