Due to popular demand, I have decided to do more personal outfit posts. Today, I decided to dress it up a little bit. I was inspired by the play on black and white in this awesome post by Martina from Reverie Of Roses and this post by Daniesha from ‘Officially Chic” (photos are the end of this post). They both have awesome blogs and you should check out both of their blogs.
Anyway, I wanted to put my own twist on this outfit and I had this pretty maxi dress by Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles just hanging in my closet begging to be worn. Any good fashionista will tell you that a good maxi dress is worth their weight in gold, then add that it’s is the typical little black dress and you got a dress that will work for any occasion.
The accessories are my favorite cat eyed sunglasses (I wear them all the time), my white handbag from Melrose, my pearl necklace, and matching bracelet. As always, these items are on loan from my mother who has more costume jewelry than a jewelry shop and lucky for me is always happy to share with me.
Speaking of sharing, after bemoaning the low quality of own cell phone camera my mother was gracious to allow me to use her phone which had way better quality, but this shoot was a little bit hit and miss because the lighting and the camera angles that worked so well in the first shoot didn’t work at all. And then I was on a time limit, so this photoshoot was a bit rushed. However, I’m surprised at how well these came out.
So what do you guys think? Love it? Hate? Let me know down in the comments!
