7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Day 5

7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Challenge – Day 5

Day 5 of the 7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Challenge.

No, I haven’t run out of steam. I just wanted to do something a little more simple and straight forward. Keeping the focus on the dress.

I really like this colour combination because the black really makes the turquoise “POP”! The necklace and one of the turquoise bangles were Salvation Army Thrift Store finds. I think the necklace cost less than $5 and the bangle was $1!! How amazing is that?! Someone really wasn’t thinking about what amazing things they were getting rid of…luckily for me!

As stated at the start of this challenge, must find a way to cover the nana knees, so this time around I have put on a pair of leggings that I purchased in Hong Kong. You can just tell from the photo that they have a lace pattern to them. Much more noticeable in real life than in the pic. The black suede wedges although VERY tall, are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I could probably wear them every day.

What I like about this look:

Shows off the dress I fell in love with.

Shows off my curves.

I get to wear my current favourite shoes.

The “POP” of turquoise keeps it fresh and fun. Any bright colour would look equally great.

What I don’t like about this look:

?? Sorry, I like it all!!

I could have gone orange but was concerned about being too Halloween. Bright pink would look good too.
