Taking Fashion Risks

Today's the final look of my 3-part Little Black Dress story with photographer Jen Sosa. We had the statement necklace, the cheeky shoe & now the wow piece. Which happens to be a stunning black + white headpiece c/o Mila Rose Designs. All examples of one of my favorite style tips: It only take "1 to be Remarkable".

I'm smitten with this stunning flower {which for the record makes me feel like Alice in Wonderland for some reason} but as I have a small face, it's definitely a bold piece on me. So pairing it with something utterly simple, non-accessorized & all-black makes it feel confident paired with understated. Like cranberry juice with just a dash of triple strength vodka. {I know, liquor isn't like espresso. Just go with it.}

I've also worn this headpiece as a pin on a polka dot dress, which you can see as the header of my newsletter. Which, by the way, you should hop on by putting your email in over on the right! I share things there I don't on the blog & have some promotions coming up you won't want to miss.

P.S. What do you have in your closet that you're afraid could be "too much"? Does pairing it with all black or something traditional like a white top & denim inspire you with ideas? Leave em in the comments below & inspire us all!
