back in black.







forever 21 wrap shirt and studded watch; H&M divided black faux leather pants; zara studded bag; target bracelet; charlotte russe chain bracelet and filigree ring; steve madden booties.

wow, life just got busy. and i mean really busy. thank god i have only 7 weeks till i'm a college graduate. all of the extra freeeeeeeee time is calling my name.

wore this to work on friday. the shirt looks and feels about 100x more expensive than it really was ($20!).
kind of reminiscent of haider ackermann's or rick owens' beautiful wrapped and draped designs.
as you can imagine, i jumped for joy when i saw it on the f21's website (i think it's still on there...) and even more so when i found it a few hours later in store.

aaaand here are the new booties i posted about a few days ago.
they are quite comfortable (chunky heel, platform), but i'm not yet used to the 4.5" heel and the slight pull that kind of height gives my calf muscle when i walk. but give me time.
love how they make me 5'11 1/2" tall, mere inches from eye level with the boyfriend.

have a great sunday/rest of the week everyone! all black outfit #2 coming soon.

I love wearing black from head to toe and making it look interesting with different textures - for this reason, have to give you stars for the pants - brilliant.

WE CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON BLACK :)

The top really does look more expensive than what you spent on it (I'm a total sucker for uneven hemlines) and those booties look great on you chica!

The Queen of Hearts said...

You really have a knack for making the inexpensive look tasteful and expensive. I have a wrap similar to that from DKNY and even with my discount it was still 4x the price you paid (though it is cashmere).
