Make with the post-processing effects. Today's blog post is brought to you by the "Lomo-ish" effect in Picnik.
Honestly, all the pics of this outfit came out bad. It was dark, I hate using a flash, so they are all blurry or weird. But still! I will subject you to them. You are WELCOME.
I wanted to try the bib-necklace-over-button-down look. This wonderful lace necklace from Whiteowl is one of my favorites, and the only one I own that is bib-ish.
I paired it with a black shirtdress from Land's end (this one) and over the knee boots from Avenue. It's more black than I typically wear (actually, I almost never wear black), but I liked it.
Fun fact: Land's End let me return the larger size of this dress even though I had worn it, and they sent me the next size down for free. Free shipping, free return shipping, etc. I was actually wearing the dress when I called to return it. So, if you order that dress in a black size 22, you may get my cooties. Just saying.
Another fun fact? The avenue otk boots bleed and make you look like you have unsightly bruises on your knee, if you wear them against bare skin. So I put leggings under them. I don't think I'd recommend the boots, which is why I'm not linking to them. They are comfy but the bleeding thing is really annoying. Does anyone know how to stop fake leather from rubbing off its fake color on you?
