Tell All: My Non-Surgical Nose Job

Wow… Part of me cannot believe that I’m actually sharing these photos. But another part of me, the part that won out, realized that it was posts just like this one that made me decide to try this procedure, and I hope that it can help some of you make the same decision for yourselves.

When going for a monochromatic look, texture is your most important tool. The goal is to create visual interest with the use of different finishes and elements, even if they are all in the same hue. For this look I brought in several different fabrics and materials — lace, tweed, leather and suede — but they all work together because they are tried-and-true black.
