"A woman’s dress should be like a barbed wire fence: serving it’s purpose without obstructing the view.” - Sophia Lauren

Welcome back FI readers!

Even though women that wear black live colorful lives, black is not my happiest color. Come on now, we’re talking black not my beloved purple. One thing is for sure though, this sexy and edgy black stunner made out of gorgeous lace will not only be your happy color for the day but will have all eyes on you.

I had on a black underlay, a pink clutch and pink sky high heels to finish off this look. Louboutins and Lace, a match made in Heaven. This outfit is a winner with its slimming extra long sleeves, a thumb hole (wow) and colorful blooms cascading down the front. A different color underlay say blush would add a subtle yet bold touch. Feeling daring? Skip the full slip like I had on and go for a bra top and spankies keeping your midriff exposed. This edgy take would work best in the summer months when the rising mercury levels get the better of us. 

 Another stunning piece by Adaobigogo of Las Vegas Nevada, this party perfect little black dress will be great for attending a wedding or even just a date night. Like I said in my post (here), she does no wrong in my book and has a penchant for designing unique pieces. With her it’s always a hit, never a miss.

Trendsetter on a budget? Hit Adaobigogo up on Instagram @adaobigogo, or email her at dobinwakuche@yahoo.com for outfits that give high end designers a run for their money at only a fraction of the price. Thank me later.

Lately I've been loving nail art. I wore this nail look a few weeks ago and I couldn't stop admiring my nails, so what did I do? Went back to the nail shop and of all the other beautiful designs in the world, I got the same exact design with a slightly deeper shade of pink. And I'm back to the 'stare at my nails game' yet again, hehe. 

How is the weather where you live? SF weather is so deceptive. Despite the glorious springy sunshine lately, it was windy and freezing cold yesterday. In essence I had an indoor laughter filled fun shoot with my new photographer friends Derrick and Thearon. 
Your thoughts?

  2. I love it! It is a fun, flirty and bold outfit. It's black with pops of color so you can wear this more than once - with different shoes and /or accessories.

  4. Very daring!
    I love the floral application, looks summery and fresh, but still has edge to it.
    And the shoes take everything to the next level (quite figuratively speaking).

  5. I'm not a huge fan of black so I tend to pair it with something brighter.

    I love this dress though. The floral motif makes gives it a more edge.

    2. Funny I received a lot of emails and messages that thought these images looked editorial as well. Im thinking the contrast worked great then. I was determined to have fun regardless of what the weather served, hehe. Dania thanks darling.
