Maroon Monotone

Maroon Monotone



This week's Friday's Fancies theme is marvelous monotone. I'm not quite sure I pulled it off because I couldn't completely go with one color, but aside from the black skirt I almost did! What do you think of this trend? Too much, or acceptable?

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! A good friend from out of town is visiting and we're heading to a swanky Hollywood bar on the Sunset Strip. I'll be back Monday, potentially hung over and broke due to ridiculously overpriced drinks. I hope you'll stop by and link up for Weekend Update! It's a fun way to get to know other bloggers while blogging about your weekend.

I really like the monotone trend, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to wear a bright color all over. I think it's fun to pull a bunch of items together in varying shades and textures. I'm loving that peplum tank and jewelry in your outfit!

As always, perfect outfit! I love the color, the peplum- everything. I think this is one monotone outfit I'd give a shot at IRL. Such a great look, lady!

I love the look of one color head to toe as long as it's a darker tone.
I'm jealous of your weekend! Drink at home first. :)

Thank you for not calling it "ox-blood." I 'preciate that. Also, no thank you for posting that purse because I love it and it is one million dollars. How dare you.
