I don’t know how they do it, but Black Milk pieces always give me the biggest confidence boost. I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it, but the prospect of putting it on terrified me ever-so-slightly – I was a tad worried about a sausage skin type look happening, aha. Not that I should have worried – while slightly time consuming to get on, the dress pulled me in in all the right places and made my waist look extra tiny! A definite yes from me. I paired it with a high neck burned velvet top and a cutesy mary janes & socks combo to take some of the edge off the dress, while still maintaining my favourite ‘all black everything’ vibe.
As the outfit was so heavy on the tougher textures, I lightened it up with softer make up – just some foundation, eyebrow filler, neutral eyeshadow & mascara. I actually think this may be the first blog post I’ve posted without eyeliner on?! I guess I have posted a make up free picture on instagram, but this is definitely a blog first.
