I've been following quite a few of these Polyvore weekly challenges on my cousin's blog and had always wanted to give it a shot. So it's not entirely beauty related but I figured since my header also says fashion, why not have some fun with this.
Clever Contrast by elixelle featuring michael kors watches
Theme: Clever Contrast
The theme was inspired by the movie Black Swan and I haven't gone to see the movie yet since it isn't out here til the 24th. Anyhow, going by the whole contrast idea and a hint of the black swan theme, I decided on a bold yet delicate contrast. I just fell in love with the Betsey Johnson soft pink with off white lace strapless dress I built this set around it. I think the dress has a ballerina quality to it and is absolutely gorgeous. Then I decided to pair it with the Paris Hilton Bonita white satin peep toe heels with a single satin flower and Just Cavalli off white leather studded clutch for some edge. For accessories, I thought the Michael Kors Baguette-Bezel rose gold wristwatch looked stunning and complemented the dress beautifully while a pair of simple John Richard crystal daisy flower stud earrings would tie the look together without being too overpowering. For a bit of contrast, I chose this gorgeous skinny thin black satin wrapped metal headband with turquoise feathers and jewels. Make up is pretty simple but connects with the whole contrast concept I was going for. A teal-turquoise eyeliner (Flipside from Urban Decay) and a pinkish nude lip color (as used in Temptalia's look here). Last but not least, a nice light turquoise nail polish, the ever popular China Glaze For Audrey.
That was definitely fun. Can't wait to try out the next challenge. What is your interpretation for this challenge theme?
