Burgundy Monochromatic

Sweater Dress (altered), skirt - thrifted
Harness - Audra Jean 
Amelia Boots - Miz Mooz

Ahh, ever since I purchased these tights and boots, I've been trying to build the perfect outfit around them. I actually put this dress back on super saturday because it needed hemming. It was a foot too long, and on the hanger looks so plain and blah. I wound up going back for it though because I just kept thinking of things it could go with. I trimmed it a liiiittle shorter than I meant to, but that just made it a perfect option for layering.

I actually get out of one of my classes for today, but I will still be taking Tuesday and Thursday to create comfortable non-binding outfits. My favorite thing about my harnesses is the lack of lower stomach compression, but great waist definition. I hate sitting around in trousers for four hours in uncomfortable school desks. So dresses will definitely be in greater rotation, especially as it warms up.

  2. I agree with FutureLint--this is definitely one of my favorite outfits for you! The burgundy looks beautiful with your skin and hair, and I like how you pulled part of your hair back. The boots and tights were made for each other. Very nice ensemble! :)

  9. Wow, I really love all the red/pink/browns in this outfit - I don't know if I'd call it monochrome so much as tonal. I really love that harness!

    So nice to see "our" boots too, hee hee!
