Hey y’all!! Long time, no read! Welcome back to my blog!!
I just wanted to share two AWESOME outfits before the year was over!!
Backstory – I had a work Christmas event to go to and every year we dress up! Last year I wore a long, velvet, hunter green dress with a lovely split in the front, so this year I HAD to wear red! So, being as extra as I am, I decided to wear red all day. Two looks. One day. Both red. Let’s get into these looks!
Because I knew my night time look was going to be a little ‘out there’, my goal for the daytime look was classic & clean. So, i looked through my closet and found this dress I made about a year ago. It is an eye catching red that fits me well, comes just below knee, has a crew neck and bell sleeves. It allows for simple & elegant jewelry, so pearls were a must and a black pointed toe pump completed this look perfectly! I topped it off with soft & fresh makeup. I wore my hair in a twist-out to give the natural effect. It was an excellent daytime look!
Night Time Red!
I am so proud of this look because it took FOREVER!!! It is a soft polyester/spandex blend that had tiny holographic dots all over. I followed a pattern to make the pants, and make-shifted a top with the extra fabric that I always seem to buy….! Anyway, God is good! The pants were SUPER long, just how I like them and I was shining all night long.
For jewelry, I chose a gold necklace with a medium sized rhinestone pendent and statement earrings to match. Also, I was able to find a bracelet that completed the set! The same black shoes carried to the look and green fur added a POP of over the top color. With my makeup, I went with a green lip, medium green waterline and a smokey eye. It was amaaaaaaziiiiing. I had a better photo!
This transition was GREAT!! I’m definitely going to try something like this again in 2019.
That’s all for now. Thanks again for visiting me and stay creative!
