Not All That Glitters is Gold

August 25, 2012 · 11

Sotille . - Hand Me Down Black Velvet Dress, Aldo Black Cuffed Bootie, Gift Black Pleather Jacket, Forever 21 Silver And Black Ballerina Necklace, Roots Black Messenger Bag, Misc. Bangles, Forever 21 Black Sequined Top - Not All That Glitters is Gold

Sometimes it is silver! I wish this look photographed better. Another way of saying that would be, "I wish I was a capable photographer."

This look ended up garnering me a lot more attention than I was ready for. Layering textures in a monochromatic look is a great way to avoid looking flat and boring. Instead of offsetting the black with white, I opted for a lower contrast gunmetal grey. Remember, eyes, lips and nails are an accessory you take everywhere. Manipulate them to bring about the best for your outfit.

What does your monochromatic style look like? Show me!
