Back to Black

August 2016
August 2016

Hello! Earlier this summer, my wardrobe and style inspiration was flooded with color, color, color. However, as summer slowly begins to come to an end and my anticipation for fall continues to grow, I've been feeling less inspired by color and more drawn back to black. I mean, hey you can never go wrong with black.

Keeping that sentiment in mind, I decided to style this look around a little black dress. I recently scored this vintage black velvet dress at Rumors in Richmond for less than $20- yas! The subtly sexy silhouette and rich texture make this a dress that I know I'll be wearing non-stop this upcoming fall/winter season.

For this look, I kept it pretty simple. I styled a tan-colored statement pair of heels with the look to accentuate the length of my legs (pro tip: wearing nude-colored heels will always make your legs appear longer.) I kept accessories to a minimum, only slipping on a fab pair of cat-eye sunglasses. A pop of pink lipstick kept the look from feeling too boring.
