I figured since I never wear black, I was definitely overdue for a LBD or little black dress post. This plus size dress comes from Kiyonna and yall know I have to put my own spin on, so I actually turned this dress around and wore it backwards. This time it was on purpose...I promise. I did a minor alteration on my new nifty sewing machine to smooth out the back where the breast are "supposed" to be. I like the neckline better this way.
So pointy toe shoes are back. I have been hanging on to an old pair of Ninewest pointy toe pumps for years just for a moment like this (who says hoarding doesn't pay off). I decided to do a little DIY project with the whole capped toe look that everyone, included myself, is going bananas over. In my head pops in the song..."that ish is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S! I always associate something with a song. Anyways, this was a quick do it yourself project that involved some tape (I used painters tape because I had it laying around) & pink nail polish (don't judge me & I would probably advise using some craft paint). If you are going to do a project like this, an old pair of shoes is a great way revamp an old thing in your closet. I thought they came out super cool. After wearing these shoes, I remember why I hate pointy toe shoes. Wide feet and pointy toe shoes do not go together.
In case you were wondering where I got my pink polish from, I got it from a Nokia sponsored event. Nokia Lumia 900 has a new pink phone and partnered Nikki Minaj's manicurist, Kandi Banks, to create a pink nail polish to launch with the phone. In case you can't see in the picture, I'm wearing the polish as well. The color is really pretty and a beautiful shade of pink. Every girl always has to have a fabulous color of pink polish around.
