Black and Gold Outfit for KCFW

My second Kansas City Fashion Week outfit is here! We were encouraged to wear black to raise awareness for melanoma during the Thursday night show. Easy peasy, right? We all know a good LBD is a staple of every closet. Luckily, I had picked up this fab black kimono from Tulip a few weeks before. So, I centered my outfit around it and brought out my favorite gold Zara shoes. 

Now, I'm going to share a lesson I learned with you all. I wanted the Kimono to shine so I chose a very simple black dress that I have had for years. Now, this is where I messed up. I used to wear this dress out in college. And, while the dress still fits, it is just not the style I am trying to go for these days. It kept riding up and was WAY too short for my liking. I left feeling a little unhappy with my choice and these photos. But, I am posting them anyway. Because, I love this kimono and why not!?
