Formal Fur Expression

Wearing a black long sleeve dress with blue faux fur stole and black shoes.

My go to outfit for any formal function starts with a simple black dress.

 I then add colourful accessories and other layers. Here I added my favourite faux fur stole, last seen here. Now I’m no model and my cheeks are a bit on the chubby/saggy side so my resting face tends to come off plain or slightly angry at times (I know there is a name for this, but I’m not repeating it here.) For this shoot I wanted to try something different to give more expression to my face. These photos are the result. I think they are a bit fun, what do you think? Do you like your resting face? Do you carry expression well? What is your formal go to outfit?

  1. This is such a gorgeous look on you - your decision to inject a pop of colour to an otherwise black look is such a good one, you look incredible! :)

  2. I definitely suffer from the face syndrome you didn't want to mention, so I always have to tell myself to exaggerate my smile, and once I look at the pictures I see a person barely smiling...

  3. I absolutely love that blue stole! It spices up every outfit so well. I have RBF too, so I feel ya. I console myself by reminding myself that Gigi Hadid made it work. :p

  13. I love how you styled your fur stole. I clicked on the previous styling and you killed it there too. Amazing. My resting face looks mad, my daughter tells me that a lot, :)). Great shots, you look stunning babe!

  14. You are by no means on the chubby side! I don't know what you're talking about. Not that it'd be a bad thing if you were, it wouldn't (I am on the chubby side), but I don't think you are at all.

    You know, I compeletely agree. On those types of events, black dresses are really a top thing. It's absolutely ideal and looks so classy!

  20. Adding fur to an outfit is a better idea than accessories themselves, this is because fur is elegant and represents royalty. Your outfit is very stunning and the clutch adds edge to the look. Now on to your face, you look wonderful because you were being true, real and goofy and not trying to model which us bloggers always try to do, I will try the resting face sometime in one one of my shoots. Have a lovely weekend my dear!

  29. Lili, I want to smack you, your cheeks are in NO WAY CHUBBY OR SAGGY! Girl you mad?! LOL! But I guess that's the way with most of us, we see flaws in us that usually non-existent. I think I have thunder thighs and my husband usually rolls his eyes to the back of his head whenever I complain. Haha! And bitch resting face? Oh yea, that's me. If I don't smile then I will look like I'm really bitchy and snotty so many first impressions of me are usually not good. LOL!

  33. You know, I never ever wear black for any formal event. I think it's a conscious decision to stand out in the sea of LBDs :) I do think that touch of blue is quite fabulous!!!
