Last Days Of Summer: Who Says Black Isn't A Summer Color?

9/27/2014



"Women who wear black lead colorful lives" -- Neiman Marcus 




Leather is typically not a summer statement item. Or it? This dress from H&M was marked down from $35 to $10 on sale. A major bargain. I had been keeping an eye out for a dress with leather detailing and couldn't miss such a deal. The dress is perfect for summer, with enough edginess to transition into fall. 








What makes this perfect for summer? The deep indentions at the shoulder area that give the dress that razorback feel, only in the front of the dress. That cut accentuates the neckline, breast, and arms in a way that's edgy and sexy all at the same time. 

I also paired the dress with these gorgeous heels from Chinese Laundry. Love the cut out detail. 








And of course a few selfies thrown in for good measure! For the makeup, I went with nighttime neutrals. I used gold in my tear duct area, followed by a warm copper all over my lid, then on the outer edges I used a dark brown as a transition color and black to create depth. These colors were from my Reveled and Covergirl eye shadow pallets. I completed the look with false lashes which I am a huge fun of for fun occasions and on my lips I'm wearing Sephora's Makeup Forever lipstick in the color Rouge.
