Getting a little edgy with shades of black and a pop of red.
Definitely, a favorite look for this year! And speaking of which, it is almost 2014. The New Year is less than a month away and I kind of can't believe it. I'll have to work on my yearly round up post soon, but I need to finish up finals, and of course Christmas shopping. How are you prepping for the holidays and the new year?
As for the outfit: love, Love, LOVE. Between my hair, lipstick, and the clothing the outfit really came together perfectly. And my hair is so long! As per the usual I am very happy with it (I do need to get in a hair mask soon though). One of the unique aspects of this outfit is the belt: it is actually a necklace-turned-belt. As I was trying to figure out what I wanted to wear, I realized I didn't have a belt for the dress which would have killed the outfit. Luckily, I had a quick improvisation and used my colorful necklace and it worked! It was also a nice, subtle touch of color and played well with the red lipstick. The lipstick also warms my face, because during the winter I tend to get a bit pale (I'm sure you remember me talking about this last year). I'm thinking a mini vaca in a tropical place would do me some good, but the price of it kind of makes this desire only a dream for now. I guess I'll stick to vitamin D supplements. To finish off the outfit, I wanted a modern-cool girl look and the tall boots and jersey dress was the best match. Topped with a structured jacket and sheer tights the outfit was made. I know I'll be wearing this outfit again.
What do you think of the look?
