Golden Hour Stripes

I am still trying to wean myself off wearing too much black, and I decided to take baby steps and wear a black and white striped dress. I added small pops of color with my lipstick, necklace, and nails. I really do love colorful things, it's just that when I wake up in foggy Seattle and have to go to class at 8:30, I gravitate towards the darker end of my closet. 
Some people find it odd that my favorite shade is black, but it is not necessarily a color. According to "color psychology", black is a color that people wear when they want to hide their insecurities and emotions. But I disagree; to me, it is mysterious and sophisticated!

  17. Hi
    I like so much the dress amazing straples dear

  18. You´re soo beautiful Melindaand this look is really well done! Like the contrast that the bright necklace and your nails make! :)

  19. So glad you included the close up shots. Love the detail on this dress. For the MJ makeup do you mean the shadows themselves falling out of the compact? I only tried it in Sephora so can not say if this happened to me. I was sort of waiting for to see if they would sell the shadows separately or if the one I like would be in a smaller compact. But at $59 this should not be happening. Too bad there is not a way to pass this info along to MJ Co. so they can improve this. Maybe leaving a review on Sephora?

  21. Ah I see , It was about 6 weeks ago so memory not sharp and only wore it once. But I do not recall that happening. But maybe Sephora could give you sample even it it is in another color just to test it out. But they are very good about return there.

    Oh my I can see why you like these picks. That dresser is gorge! I am drooling now.

    and added you in google plus , plz do add me back.

  26. I love black too because it´s slimming and combines with anyhting even with black. ;) The necklace makes the whole outfit pop!

  27. You look amazing! And black is a color, it's also my favorite color! And I think that only a strong person can wear all black and still pop among others. And I'm sure you do that! Thanks for sharing this! And thanks for visiting my blog!


  28. Wow! You look so beautiful in that outfit :-)
