Blackout

I'm no stranger to color, but the allure of a black on black ensemble is pretty hard to resist, especially when there are studs and (faux) leather involved.  Jovonna London sent over this amazing studded chiffon blouse the other month, but with temps and humidity levels rising, the thought of wearing something long-sleeved was the furthest thing from my mind.  I adore the studded details, but the peter pan collar won me over.  Luckily, the weather has simmered down and this rad blouse came out to play.  The blouse has since sold out, but Jovanna London carries other amazing pieces like the Cataria dress and the Genesis blouse.

I wanted to pair this blouse with something equally amazing, enter... another leather pleated skirt (another version seen here).  I love pleats!  As I've said in the past, I'm naturally drawn to feminine silhouettes with accents of edge.  This look truly nails my style aesthetic.  I couldn't resist injecting a pop of color with these Jeffrey Campbell platform heels that were gifted by the super sweet Asami of Pink Kitten.  Now, she's a girl with a very impressive JC collection.  I hope one day I can visit her to see her collection in real life!

I'm so excited about this look. Probably one of my all time faves... the burgundy shoes add a great pop of color, but doesn't take away from the darkness of the look. Totally crushing and may need to try to replicate the look. Bravo, girl!

Mae said...

You must have the biggest shoe closet, EVER.

You do black on black so well, but knowing you, I knew you'd throw in a pop of color somewhere. You can never resist the urge. You're too colorful yourself (in the best way possible)!!

Love this outfit boo (and those killer heels!)! I got the same skirt too but when it came in the mail it was completely wrinkled. ANy tips on how to get those wrinkles out? I've heard of putting it in the dryer for 50 seconds but the material is so thin I'm a bit skeptical. :(

Jess said...

Hey Girlie! Just discovered your blog! You're adorable--love your outfits and accessories.

Quick question: How do your JC O'Wilde shoes fit? Are they true to size, or do you need to size up or down?

Thanks mama!
