BLACK MAGIC

posted by Elshane on Jan 2 2015, under Fashion

It's the dress that made me do it...

Go black, that is. 

Slightly sad, slightly normal. At least my leopard booties gave me a step in the right direction, but otherwise, this is as *basic* as it gets. The construction of this dress was a must for me-- I'm a sucker for a super low V (as you may recall my wedding dress's V that nearly touched my belly button)-- and I was in New York with little accessories to pump it up. Nonetheless, for a night on the town, this was all GO.

Ever feel a little out of your comfort zone and just roll with it? Well, such was this evening when I felt like a black basic boochild in my black basic look. My typical hair down moment was not giving me YES, so I went into 180 degree overdrive. I threw my hair in the world's messiest bun, added a deep red wine stained lip, and took an alter ego that night. I pushed my limits.

And it worked. I think?

No photoshop skills here. Eekkk.
