The Scarlet Woman on Trademe

It might be the dip in temperature today but I had an urge for red and scoured Trademe for red dresses in particular. Many people display their garments so badly on Trademe that I wouldn’t pick them up and use them on my blog. A wrinkled garment laid flat on the ground is not going to show anyone the shape or fit of the item and who would buy something under those circumstances? No one. The way you display your for-sale items is crucial not only to the price they will fetch but also to whether they sell at all. Hence I haven’t got a great number of dresses to show you but the ones I have chosen have a certain appeal and could be well worth a look if they are your size. Follow the links below.

Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show

I was watching Desperate Housewives last night and was, as always, blown away by their beautiful red dresses at the beginning and looked up the 2011 Red Dress Fashion Show. It must have been a spectacle with all those celebrities prancing along the runway.  They must work so hard on their figures to look that good.

It’s easy to find beautiful evening wear in secondhand shops and on trading websites. Often the garments have only been worn a couple of times and are in fantastic condition. Look for the designer labels and you can be sure of the workmanship. Wear your purchase a few times and then sell  it on. That way you have a rotating wardrobe that you never get tired of.
