Stepping out of my comfort zone...Sunday, December 08, 2013
This months Take 10 challenge was sponsored by Jarlo, a brand I have liked for a long time now & the selection of dresses for us to choose from sure didnt disappoint. It has been my favourite item to style in the history of Take 10. I mean look at it? How could you not wanna throw this dress on and attend a fancy cocktail do or Christmas soirée?
Something this glam is totally out of my comfort zone, so I thought to heck with it I may as well challenge myself even further and pick an all black figure hugging number. Black is something I dont usually do, figure hugging things pretty much scare me. When I first opened this dress in the mail I thought they'd sent me the wrong item because Id forgotten what id selected & thought id never chose this?! But Im really glad I did...
This dress was so stunning and elegant I kept accessories to a minimum. Glittery gold clutch & brushed gold heels, a couple of bangles and no necklace. I put my hair up in milkmaid braids to show off the neckline & teamed it with my black glasses to keep it in the same colour scheme.
