(Almost) All Black

DSC_1404.

Me in all black? It's a rare sighting. I think it looks so chic and elegant on other people (like Rachelle of PinkSole!), but I don't really like it on me. Everyone knows I'm all about pattern and color, particularly one of my friends who just loves black. So I told her I'd wear all black for her birthday, which was last week. I (almost) did it! To me this is an all black look-- I just had to add some pattern in a light color to break up all the black! Haha. And of course, I went with a bag to match my gray cardigan.

I really really love this necklace and bracelet combo. Can you tell? It's like they were all made for each other.

P.S. My pants were $7.80 at Forever 21 in December, and the shoes were $10 circa 2010, also Forever. The pants stretch out in all the wrong places but I was in desperate need of black pants, and you can't really argue with $7.80. Or at least I can't. As for the heels, I love their shape and they've served me well over the years. But they're very uncomfortable. Not uncomfortable as hell (these are worse), but definitely the kind of heels you can only wear to a restaurant or the movies. As you may know, I'm telling you this because I like to be 100% transparent. I've linked up some $7.90 pants below, in case you'd like some ill-fitting but decent-looking black pants of your own from the fast fashion, sweatshop-owning global retailer that is Forever 21, all while rewarding me with a measly 5 cents for clicking on the product.

Again, just being 100% transparent here.

Happy Monday!
