A Little Bit of Lace

I had the opportunity to attend the Haute List fashion show last weekend at the beautiful Milwaukee Art Museum.  It was the perfect setting for an outfit shot so I took advantage before the show started.

When picking my outfit for the show, I wanted something modern, but still with a bit of whimsy.  I had recently fallen in love with a pair of pants at H&M  and found a lace tunic which really picked up the needlework-like design on the pants.  Multiple patterns can be a bit risky when putting together an outfit and when doing so I try to look for complimenting patterns or contrasting colors.

To balance off the black and white, I opted to accent with red.  Some suede ankle strap sandals from Nine West, along with a red lip, and a black and red bag from Lela Boutique helped to pop out the color.  I looked for red earrings, but couldn’t find what I was wanting so opted with black oval drop earrings that I found at Macy’s.

Red lipstick

Red lipstick can be a bit intimidating and the important thing to remember is to find a shade that works with your skin tone.  I have a lot of red undertones in my skin so I need a red that has a blue base versus orange so I don’t look clownish.
