A play on basics

photos by Jen

Although I usually love flamboyant pieces,
 I can also appreciate well constructed basics,
 that one can build their wardrobe upon. 
But when I see basics with a twist, 
such as these Rag and Bone black jeans with leather panels 
or a black blazer with cascading edges, 
I know I've hit gold!

To keep it as close to my own personal style, 
over accessorizing is necessary with leopard print high heels, 
stacks of bracelets and the ultimate statement necklace.



 Wearing: Kenneth Cole blazer, H&M top & necklace, Rag&Bone jeans, Forever 21 shoes, Vintage bag, Target cuff and gold bracelets from Vegas.

Welcome back, Mina! It's great to see you blogging again - I can't wait to see all of the lovely things you've undoubtedly added to your wardrobe in your time away :) This look had a special appeal for me of course because of the black-on-black aspect. I love all of the gold accessories you added, especially the bracelets!

I've (finally) updated my blog roll, replacing Faboulista with Glitter in my Veins :) Looking forward to seeing you next week!

xox,
Cee
