{outfit post} Chignon Du Cou

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

I decided to get fancy with my title today! I'm going all french on you. The word “chignon” comes from the French phrase “chignon du cou,” which means nape of the neck. So there you have it, a little trivia for the day! If you're still not drawing the correlation to my post, my hair is up in a chignon bun today ;).

Moving on.... I am quite enamored with my outfit today because I happen to love mint green and black together. I had some issues shooting these photos because the color of the shoes and necklace was being blasted out (This is the second time I had to shoot this outfit too)! I pumped up the contrast and saturation on these photos so you could see how beautiful my accessories are. I think this is when I am supposed to hash-tag #fashionbloggerproblems.
