PLAYING WITH FIRE



Red Round Sunglasses c/o Oasap, Red Mesh Sleeve Dress c/o Sugarlips, Red High-Low Skirt c/o Romwe, White Mountain Booties


I like to describe this look as the best possible marriage between elegance and grunge. I love mesh, and when I found out Sugarlips made the mesh sleeve bandage dress I had in black, in red, I was immediately drawn to it! Red is a color that brings to mind formal wear so I knew I wanted to somehow bridge the gap between the roughness of the mesh with the elegance of this classic color. I pulled down the neckline (it's stretchy) so it would rest as an off-the-shoulder dress, a common cut of formal gowns. Even the detailing of the mesh begins to evoke the intricacy of red lace! 

Next, I added my chiffon, high-low skirt from Romwe to add some flowiness to the look. Finally, I thought it couldn't hurt to throw on some red sunglasses seeing as I was fully embracing the color! To add a contrast and rougher feel to the look, I chose to wear my lace up booties. It also provided a nice compliment to my darker hair amidst the monochromatic look. Hope you like this outfit! I definitely enjoyed the challenge of putting it together!

I also want to let you guys know about Romwe's Back to School giveaway! There's a winner everyday, and the prize is a schoolbag with over $200 of Romwe merchandise inside! It ends on September 18th and is open worldwide. You can enter and view the rules here. Good luck! :)

And yes, depending on when you are reading this, September 13th is my birthday! But I have a different look planned for that day! ;) I'm finally seventeen!
