Vintage Inspired Dress

The simplest and easiest form of chic comes in a black dress. However for a wedding I attended last Saturday, I chose to go bold in red.  While shopping for this occasion, I chose the shade of red that best compliments my natural coloring. I had recently posted a guide for doing this and in case you missed it, here is the link. http://www.stylememaria.com/?p=622

There is a certain elegance in a fully covered bust and a knee length dress, and to me modesty is feminine. I chose a vintage inspired dress with a golden belt at the waist, I played it up with subtle accessories. I let my hair down in loose waves to mirror the fluidity of the dress. I purposely mismatched black pumps with a beige handbag to break a needless fashion rule. Same applies to my nails, I went red for my toes and french tips for my hands. I also matched diamonds with ruby, white gold, and yellow gold. All these differences blended together to create my look.

This is what I wore.
