Color Yourself Black and Red

Wednesday, September 28, 2011
This church outfit was inspired by Emersonmade. I loved the red and black together. I'll probably try it again with a black turtleneck in the winter when it dips down to 50 (jealous?!?). And doesn't this skirt remind you of Joan from Mad Men? I feel sexy whenever I wear this, which is probably why I don't wear it very often. Sexy is not one of my adjectives.. Cute little Asian? Yes. I do the "little Asian" very well!!

  2. i'm with ya on that one...i wear my hair in a top knot all. the. time. it's just so easy to do, and i'm lazy bones! if you find a new hairstyle as easy as this for the lazy-inclined, hook a sista up :)

  3. You are cute, little, asian AND sexy! Bam! Hmm, what about a loose side braid/fishtail braid? A low chignon (centered or to the side)? I usually go for the half-up hairdo because I'm super lazy with my hair. You can also try to buy some texturzing pray to change it up when it's just down.

  15. Yes to black and red! But I've been doing more black and hot pink/magenta/fuchsia these days. Yes that skirt would make a lot of us feel totally sexy!

    As for hair styles, I just got my self some side swept bangs, it adds character to the up do that we're all stuck with when we're on the go :D So, still an up do, but with bangs :D

  23. Hah, I'm the worst person to ask about hairstyles. I either wear mine long and loose, up in a curled bun in the heavy heats, or in some sort of pony-tail or other. I never really learned to 'do my hair'. That skirt looks great on you though, you should totally wear it more often.

  24. Hate to break it to you, but you definitely look sexy! Love the red and black, and you're right there is something Mad Men about it. I <3 EmersonMade she offers up so much lovely inspiration.

  25. For my thin, asian hair I love the fishtail braid! Good for any&all occasions. I also love the classic high pony tail for when im rushing out the house :)

    aces on that skirt for $6!

  30. I love that top. I'm all about puff sleeves. I have a few favorite hairstyles. My most favorite is what I call my "Audrey Style" (for Audrey Hepburn of course). It's a beehive/pompadour type of style with bangs in the front. It looks way better than it sounds ^_^

  31. Red and black is always perfect! Love the white shoes!

  32. Elaine, you ARE hot.  Rawr.  No really, I think you're gorgeous.  And I always wanted to be little.  But instead I'm taller than my dates sometimes.  Which is annoying and weird.  I've been doing the side braid lately because I'm lazy.  I just curl the front pieces and whip it back.  But I guess that requires longish hair?

  33. Loooove this look!  And it is super sexy.  It's hard not to feel sexy in red and black.  

    I've been pinning a bunch of hair ideas, but I've only tried a few, namely Heidi braids and this twisty style: http://www.laurenconrad.com/post/hair-how-to-twisted-updo

  34. ohhh, you do look fineee in that skirt...and yes, totally jelly over the 50 temps.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You look amazing. My two favorite color combination.!

    *I'm not sure if this will work for your hair but when you are going to bed part it any desired way, just double twist a couple of pieces with any substance that has a hold or something secure it with a scrunchie and sleep on it and wake up and effortless waves unless you are a hair up kind of girl then I would have other suggestions for you =]

  36. Oh I love how polished this look is! The red & black combination is beautiful! I actually really like this hairstyle, I wish I could make it myself - and have it actually last for more than a few minutes :P
    And yes, totally jealous of your 50 degree winters!
