Minimal-Black ft. White (w/ Madora Heels)

Happy Friday and cheers to the weekend everyone!

As we transition into the fall weather, I’m glad that I can finally restyle my summer pieces by adding layers. As the temperature drops, I love transitioning into a neutral color palette. I decided to keep the base color of my outfit black so the color white could stand out and make the shoes and vest pop.

I was recently sponsored by Madora, it’s an online shopping app from San Franciso that is geared towards women to shop in a personalized store of shoes and bags. I decided to pick out a pair of heels that had a more clean, contemporary feel to it. The shopping experience for me was easy because I knew what style I was looking for. They have quite a large selection but they can pick out items to specifically match you, your life, and your style. They have a large variety from vintage inspired shoes to basic must-haves to glitzier night-out heels. Madora also does a really great job with responding to emails and keeping you updated about your package. I absolutely love my heels. I’m really into bold pieces and I like how the black and white straps a unique touch. Personally, I don’t wear open-toed heels a lot but these were so comfortable. I love how the heels are easy to walk in because its chunkier, shorter, shape and the ankle strap is my favorite part. I hope you like the way I style the heels! I decided to play around with the contemporary vibe so I feel like different cuts and lengths of clothing helps achieve a more minimal look, but I mainly made sure that my top and dress pants were more fitted.

Cruella de Vil

image

I hope¬†everyone had a Happy Halloween! I absolutely love Halloween and the idea of dressing up as a different character for a night. This year, my friend Dania decided to go as villains because we thought it would be something new and fun. Dania chose Maleficent and I chose Cruella.¬†Cruella de Vil is one of the most iconic villains of Disney. She’s known for her black-and-white and red colored high-fashion looks. I find her to be one of my most favorite villains because she is such an intense, dramatic figure. She’s portrayed as a wealthy, powerful woman with a pampered and glamorous lifestyle¬†and she won’t stop until she gets exactly what she wants..dalmatians.

My Look: 

This look was actually thrown together really last minute since I wasn’t sure whether or not I was going to dress up for Halloween so I wasn’t able to look for many props to prepare for my costume! I started off with basics so I chose a black top and tight pencil skirt to act as a little black dress. Cruella’s iconic looks consists of mainly black, white, and pops of red. I didn’t have any red accessories like Cruella’s gloves so I opted for red lipstick. I chose to wear a white coat over my black dress with a fur collar and fur cuffs. Then I created a quick last minute shawl by taking a baby/kid’s Dalmatian costume (bought at a thrift store) and cut it into a long piece and stapled the cloth together because I ran out of time to sew it. Afterwards, I draped the shawl over my shoulders to add a hint of the Dalmatian print. To complete the look: I painted a pair of earrings green with green nail polish, slipped on black printed tights (the polka-dots were a nice touch!), black heels, and black lace gloves. I also managed to make a last minute cigarette stick by taking two straws and wrapping them with black duct tape and a white napkin piece at the tip!

Hair/Makeup:

Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to buy enough white hair spray to color my half of my hair white. But I did use a leftover small bottle to color the ends of my hair. I couldn’t find many pictures of Cruella’s makeup looks online but I noticed that she had green eyeshadow in the cartoon version so I wanted to try some on to match the earrings. I also mixed in purple because I was inspired by this makeup video recreation. It was definitely interesting to blend in different colors: green and purple and then wear red lipstick but it was a really fun experience for Halloween!
