I think we all know I have a hard time with color, hence the name of this blog. Black is always my go-to, my fail-safe, my easy-out. So when I received this Ruched Cowl Dress from Baukjen, similar here, I was a little scared of such a bold choice. I had to shake myself and realize, “Hello, you’re someone that wears giant fascinators, fingerless gloves, and too many feathers. Color is okay.”
After first putting on this dress, I realized that it was going to become one of my staples. It’s simple, but can easily be dressed up. Because it’s ruched, it accentuates every single curve and gives me that va-va-voom look that Husband definitely appreciates.
And on another note, Baukjen is not new around Black + Blonde One! Formerly known as Isabella Oliver, as seen here and here, Baukjen is now your source for sophisticated basics in quality fabrics. Their whole purpose is to serve maximum style with minimal effort. That’s something I treasure not only with a busy schedule, but also because of my limited budget. Almost everything on the site I could find myself wearing in a multitude of styles, which makes my wardrobe smaller, easier to navigate, and much more effective. I really appreciate the brand for understanding the modern woman.
What’s the go-to item in your wardrobe?
