Washed in Black

Wednesday, July 27, 2011
I can't remember the last time I wore all black! (Yes, I do.) I could've worn that pink necklace again but it's pretty heavy and my neck is fragile. I wore my choker necklace with it to match the crew neckline of my new(ish) top. Can I just say how much I love how this top balloons out? Perfect for disguising the big lunch I had that day...which is everyday. Free lunch, anyone? Also, I'm getting tired of my J Brand jeans (GASP) constricting my sausage legs. Gonna look into a new brand that Jess told me about...but I can't remember! Jess! What were those hot jeans you were wearing when we met up???

    Sausage legs?  That's funny.  And ridiculous.  :)  I forget about all black.  It looks so the bomb!

  9. I think all black and all white ensembles are always chic.  Unless they are all white or all black sweatsuits.  But with heels I could even be swayed on that one..

  16. All black looks good on you! On me, it's like I'm headed for a funeral. lol. As for the jeans, I picked up the AG Angelina jeans. AG jeans are super comfy and eco-friendly..what's not to love?! :D

  17. If you find out the brand of those jeans, please let us know! While I don't think you have sausage legs at all, I totally understand what you mean. I have yet to find skinny jeans that can comfortably accommodate my thighs without gaping at the waist.

    I am also beyond jealous of your bag. You have a real knack for making affordable things look expensive!
