We came across this vintage red cherry siren dress with a drape back on etsy.com and couldn’t resist its simple charm. And, for $30, it’s a steal. There’s only one, so if you’re a size 8 and it’s calling your name, you better move quick. Here are our takes on the little red dress:

Favorite Quote: “Funny business, a woman’s career – the things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you’ll need them again when you get back to being a woman. That’s one career all females have in common, whether we like it or not: being a woman. Sooner or later, we’ve got to work at it, no matter how many other careers we’ve had or wanted.” Bette Davis in All About Eve
