Silver Sun



Black maxi split dress: c/o Style Moi (link here)
Silver 'Montana haze' hat: c/o Lack of Colour (link here)
Silver necklace: eBay
'Adele' Lace up heels: c/o Shop Calico (link here)

I haven't worn a maxi dress in a while! I've forgotten how comfortable they are. I think some people are a bit wary of wearing something covered-up and potentially shapeless and unflattering, but the low back cut and thigh-high split makes the dress look a bit more sexy without being over the top. Being black, this maxi from Style Moi can take me from the current spring season to cooler days as well.
 
You definitely get what you pay for with this necklace! Although it looked pretty cool with dangly silver coins and engraved ancient writing and only set me back $3, it actually leaves yucky iron marks on my chest! It's nothing a bit of soap and scrubbing won't fix, but still a nasty shock haha. I've seen this exact same necklace in other stores being sold for up to $30...when you can get the exact same thing pretty much straight from the manufacturer off eBay for a few dollars!
Pretty much every shooting experience I've done has offered new challenges haha. I might be in the exact same spot as last week, but a different hour or different weather can lead to significant discrepancies in the photos. It's kinda stressful but you just have to keep experimenting. I moved my tripod around a fair bit before settling on a location, and I'm quite happy with the warm morning sun glow I ended up capturing :)

    I have one black maxi that I need to...alter haha. Curse my short genes! Either way, I haven't been motivated to hem it as I never know how to style it or when to wear it! Your post definitely is making me think that I should wear it sometime soon :D
