How to Pull Off Wearing One Color from Head to Toe

Auburn, crimson, oxblood, burgundy, garnet, maroon, wine, brick!
If I would have to wear only one color for the rest of my life, it would probably be one of above.
I say color, because otherwise, I would most likely choose black.



Dressing from head to toe in just one color is usually not an easy task, but sometimes that's even easier than matching two or three different colors with each other. Although monochromatic may seem dull, it doesn't have to mean boring - in fact, rich shades like oxblood give the monochrome look a luxurious appeal. Especially with a dress like this!

I bought the dress at the local flea market (Hrelić) and wore it at my graduation ceremony, under the long black academic gown. I matched it with my old pair of vintage looking heels and velvet purse. And let me tell you this - it was the first time ever that I gave myself the centre part in my hairstyle. I always thought it looks a little bit harsh on me (or pretty much anyone who's not Hedy Lamarr), but I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to pull it off.

Of course, monochrome means "all one color," but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun with your finishing touches, such as silver vintage brooch on my purse, white pearls necklace and earrings. 










Dress: flea market (Hrelić)
Shoes: Deichmann
Purse: thrift shop
Brooch: antique market

Oh and did I mention how well this color goes with the autumn weather? Don't you agree?

    1. Thank you so much my darling! I usually am not a fan of monochromatic looks, but in this case I was a victim of the burgundy empire. :) Autumn is just an accessory, a beautiful and magical accessory. :)
