All black faux leather outfit

Put this outfit together just to have something to post today. The dress is a recent purchase from Fashion Nova. Mentioned in this post as one of two faux leather dresses purchased last month. Or maybe it was this post? The boots are from back in March. They are the bow detail over the knee boots also purchased via Fashion Nova and featured in Fashion Nova Black Thigh High Over the Knee Boots

The boots definitely do not go with the outfit.

But I couldn’t wear the stretchy vegan boots again so soon after re-wearing them for my Halloween outfit video. And I couldn’t wear the platform boots I purchased and featured in Fashion Nova Into the Night Black Faux Leather Trench Coat because I’ve worn them for a few too many outfits in a short span of time recently.

I think this would have been a great outfit for me to try out a pair of pant boots.

I’ve been wanting to try a pair of leather pants boots (boots that are also pants or pants that are also boots all in one pants and boots) but I couldn’t think of how I would even style them. I think they would have worked with this dress. I needed a pair of boots that hugged my calves and thighs. These ones I’m wearing just look ridiculous.

Saint Laurent has a really interesting looking pair of leather pants boots that actually look like leather pants and leather boots. They’d be perfect if the heels were stiletto.

The halter style black faux leather dress

This is supposed to be a mid-thigh length mini dress, but they were out of stock in petite. I purchased a tall hoping it would still fit like a mini, but (when standing) it fits more like a midi dress or a just above the knee length mini depending on how much I weigh on a given day. Seated it fits like a mini at my present weight.

Today I was quite a bit bloated, so the dress wasn’t fitting too spectacularly. But I’m fully on board with the movement to love and accept my body in all it’s sizes and shapes and conditions. A flat stomach is nice but hey, sometimes the gut protrudes.

As far as the outfit goes, I threw on an old biker style faux leather jacket with the dress. I think I purchased it from Macys a few years back. I’m not quite sure because I have about 4 similar biker style jackets and can’t be sure which was purchased from where.

Overall the outfit is okay. I would wear it out in public with a different pair of boots. I do think the dress with the black faux leather trench coat and  the stretchy vegan boots as shown below gets the edge.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
