Pretty in Plum

June 2016

Hello! Surprise- another monochromatic look! I can't get enough of color and monochromatic outfits this season. As I try to think of an explanation for my recent love of color and monochromatic looks, the concept of strength in fashion plays around in my brain. There's nothing visually stronger or more striking than monochrome aesthetics; monochromatic outfits convey a sense of boldness and strengh unlike any other kind of outfit can. 

For this look, I slipped into a corduroy, plum-colored dress. I accentuated the deep color of the dress with a pair of platform heels in a matching color, a plum-colored ribbon choker and deep shade of berry lipstick. I accessorized with my golden "Tori" necklace (can't get enough of this piece recently!) and a golden crystal necklace. I'm drawn to the simple, boho-witchy mood created through my use of color and styling of this look. 

For this look, I decided to play around a little with my makeup. I used to have the most monotonous, most boring beauty routine and in the past couple months, I've decided to shake up my beauty routine. I've enjoyed testing out new products as well as experimenting with different makeup styles. I've come to the conclusion that my personal style is far from boring so shouldn't my beauty routine mirror that? For this look, I played around with my makeup by lining my bottom lash line with faux rhinestones. Talk about glam! I love how visually intriguing this look is, it's not something that you're likely to see on a daily basis (although I'm about ready to start wearing it on a daily basis.) I'd definitely say that this makeup risk paid off!
