My search began at Urban Outfitters, where pushy shoppers and loud techno music almost ran me out the door. But after a few deep breaths and some digging, I grabbed a red bell-sleeved knit dress from Lux. It also comes in taupe (drab) and black (boring). The V-neck cut was very flattering, but the material felt cheap and the skirt was too long. Though inexpensive ($78), the poor quality made it worth even less. 526 Sixth Ave., at 14th St.; 646-638-1646.
