H&M; faux fur stole and leather gloves, Hermes belt, Chanel WOC, Louboutin Decolettes
Inspired by BR’s styling for this collection, I kept the color palette simple and let the textures shine in this outfit. I love the look of all black with an accent color – be it a bold, bright red, or a more muted deep wine like the shade of these gloves. I had tried on the stole and gloves previously at H&M;, and went back for them now that temps have dropped precipitously. I guess patience paid off, because the faux fur pieces are now marked down to $7, and the genuine leather gloves (available in black, wine, or tan; the wine and tan leather feel softer than the black) are just $15 a pair. I am wearing size XS, which fits very slim but the fingers are long on me, per usual.
This dress is made with all-over lace fabric, and is lined in black from the bust down. The camisole-style dress lining underneath has thin straps, and there are small loops to keep the straps in place at each shoulder.
Hair routine is from this post, and makeup is from this post plus my trusty Rimmel Bordeaux lipcolor.
This dress in a 00P fit decently off the rack, but I adjusted it with the same alterations made to my last BR sheath (outfit also featuring this same belt, reversed for a different look). I tapered the skirt shape in from the hips downward, so that the bottom would have a pencil silhouette. The length is intended to be long and lean – I wanted to keep that vibe, but hemmed it just 1 inch to balance out my proportions.
