You Look Fab

Dress by VALENTINO, Handbag by PRADA, Booties by VALENTINO

You look fabulous darling! One of the major trends that comes and goes in the cooler seasons is herringbone and houndstooth. When worn in a feminine way, they look very sexy and chic! The look above is especially suited for the hourglass body type, which I do not have! A fitted classic dress like this is begging for curves. Since curves aren't happening anytime soon, I have decided to fill the space with great accessories. Layered with a faux fur shawl and a great pair of Valentino studded ankle boots will do the trick. A punch of color would look great with this outfit to brake up the monotony of the black and white. I did not have any color on hand, so I had to settle for this boring Prada. Just kidding, more like this fabulous Prada! I painted my nails red and wore a bold lip color to subtly add a hint of color. Never under estimate a great nail polish color to complete a look!
