Earthy Señorita


My fashionistas,  how many of you like earth colour? If you do, how would you wear it? What colours you would add to accentuate the Look?  

These are the questions I asked on our FB page few days ago. I had been thinking of donnning an unusual colour especially when I am an ardent fan of colours and love to block it every now and then. I thought of earth colour and how can I forget its’ never ending connection with the colour -gold. While browsing through clothes at Forever 21 one day, I found this HI-LO off-shoulder summer dress. It’s kind of someone have read your mind and capture the imagination to the fullest. I was visualizing something like this for some time and then I found this in a high street store. It has 3 most important pattern in it that I love always-1. Hi-Low pattern, 2. colour  and 3. Halter neck. Halter necks are perfect for people who have broad shoulder plate. I thought it is a bit risky to don a colour like this on a skin tone like me which almost blends with the dress. I don’t like to play safe. You got to be bold in your experiments with clothes that suit your persona and sensibility. I was highly convinced that this will be a perfect day-wear while on summer holidays. The first thing I bought when in Spain was, a red flower hair clip that you spot on Flamenco danseuse. I  wanted to rent the traditional costume and  have a photo-shoot in them but I had not found a single shop where they rent the costume of those traditional Flamenco dancers. You could buy them but why waste money on a one day and done costume. So, I picked only a flower. And instantly I knew I will wear with this earth colour hi-Low dress as it throws the needed colour pop to the look. I liked  how my dress blended with the colour of the sand on the beach. A perfect marriage!

Wearing  it with a donut bun was perfect as it was a very hot day and since my hair is not very short, this way I could keep it neat and comfy. How can you make a donut bun? Buy one of these  and follow the easy steps shown in the photo and tuck the excess hair with bobby pins et VOILA! 

I have to be honest with you, I actually think about every single detailing of a Look, I can envisage which jewellery will go with which outfit when I conceptualize a Look. I just knew that my wooden and gold bangles from Primark will do full justice to this Dress. I just added one more big chunky bangle(made of shell) with my wooden and golden ones to give it some more punch. I kept nude make-up for a nude earthy Look. I am wearing the same pair of strappy beaded sandals that you saw me wearing in the previous post. I just thought because of the high-low pattern of the dress, the straps of the sandals can be shown very prominently, which it did!
