TBT - All for Black and Black for All


A classic little black dress never goes out of style, nor is it ever a bad outfit choice. I made this halter version work-appropriate by pairing it with a black bolero. This little bolero blends so well with the dress, it almost looks like it's part of it. I spiced things up with some bright turquoise accessories, because I felt an all black outfit would be a bit much for summer. Some times the simplest looks are the best. No fuss, no muss!

TBT - Desert Mirage


The combination of tan and seafoam paint the picture of a desert mirage. The lightness and flowiness of the dress brings on images of the appearance of a mirage in the middle of the hot desert dunes. The colour palette is a nice contrasting one. The darker neutral anchors the brighter, airier hue and makes for a little yin and yang action. The same contrast that would exist between the harshness of the desert and the softness of a watery mirage. Now, I've never actually been in the desert, nor experienced the appearance of a mirage, but this is how I picture it in my mind. This is obviously a romanticized version because I don't expect being in such a position to see a mirage be all that pleasant... I do however think the camel and seafoam palette is a great summer combination!
