Or is it a bit too vampy?
The dress is a sort slightly fishtail wiggle dress in satin and I usually go for a forties make up look which would include quite a strong red lipstick.

Absolutely!!! My wedding dress is a fifties cut, ruby red, and I will be wearing red lipstick too grin imo it fits perfectly with forties /fifties look (which I also dress in)

Oh that's good to hear!
This is the dress, any ideas for shoes/ bag/ jewellery?

Absolutely. Red Lipstick is timeless and goes with anything.

That's a pretty dress, what is the occasion?

A wedding reception at a restaurant, I really hope the dress fits! I bought it on eBay and it wasn't arrived yet... confused

Love red lipstick with a red dress.

Ooo that will be perfect.

With Red I would perhaps wear black accessories. Let the dress do the talking so to speak.

You could have went with Nude but the dress looks like a very rich red so I would 100% go with black.

I'm sure it will be fine you are going to look lovely.

Oh yes, red lipstick would work really well. A cropped, structured black bolero, black kitten heels, seamed stockings or maybe fishnets, black clutch.
