Happy Hump Day, beauties!

I want to thank all of you for the birthday wishes yesterday, it truly helped my birthday feel that much more special :) As mentioned in yesterday's post, I'm sharing my outfit that I wore to celebrate my birthday. I fused three colors that I love together, which are also the color themes for this blog: black, white and pink! I think what I love most about this combination is the edgy element they somehow collectively create. Pink is such a feminine color and when styled with black and white, the black can really help to harden the softness that the pink carries. What's funny, in this case, the effect that the colors carry were switched, since I wore a pink leather motto (vegan) jacket and the lace on the dress was black. 

Speaking of the dress, it's perfect for creating the illusion of a curvier shape. Dresses that have a marked silhouette down the center in one solid shade, contrasted with another color for the base of the dress peeking through, helps to create the illusion of a curved waist, which is super flattering. I find these dresses to look amazing on every shape, but especially my apple and rectangular shaped friends! One thing to keep in mind is the base color when shopping. If you're in the process of loosing weight or don't want to further highlight your weight, I wouldn't suggest white as the base, rather black or a darker shade. We know that white has the tendency to highlight, so it can actually make one appear larger or add some unwanted visual weight.

I hope you all have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by!
