I know that Cobalt is the "It" color this season and I love it too but in the past couple months I seem to have adopted a renewed love for fashions favorite and most versatile hue: black.
Maybe it is the punk trend that is so hot right now, or the fact that I have a messy 4 year old and black doesn't show ketchup or finger paint unless it is dumped on me, or perhaps the fact that it is so slimming and elongating and that is a draw for my 5' 2" frame. I think it is actually all of the above.
I have already gotton scuffs on my black faux fur lined rideing boots from JustFab that I've only had since September because I can't stop wearing them. It's nothing that some black shoe polish picked up at any shoe store for a couple dollars hasn't fixed. The boots were $39.95.
My other favorite black pieces include black leggings from Victoria Secret with black "leather" stripes down the sides picked up recently from the Pink line for a $25; a moto style jacket in a knit fabric from F21 for $22.90; a waffle textured sweater in acryilic with suble metalic shimmer by Merona from Target for $22; a graphic tee from Zara with a pair of studded out black combat boots that states Love Is The new Black for $18.
As far as jeweley goes I have been loving my black and crystal jeweled necklace from J. Crew Factory for about $40; my black and gold spike necklace from F21 for only $5.80; and my Zara "glass" necklace for $59.
When the temp drops a bit more or for our daily outdoor time (unless it is a downpour, a blizzard, or below 20º.) I will be wearing my ASOS beanie with gold metal hardwear (bought last season but not worn and I think it was $18) (or another random black beanie) and some basic black texting gloves bought at Target for like 5 bucks and of course my down sleeling bag coat from Betsy Johnson (not in black but in army green)
I will upload pics of most of the above items soon. Thanks for reading and stay cool fellow fashion lovers!

The trend that I have been loving the most this summer is black and white also known as monochrome. From graphic print dresses to jailbird stiped jeans. I've always been drawn to this classic color combo. Watch the above YouTube video for some ideas to getting the look for a bargain!

One of my favorite decades by far for fashion is the 1920's. I love the elegant and femanine fashions for ladies and the gentlemenly looks for men. People realy knew how to dress then and I occasionally find myself fantasing about being alive at that time. To channel my inner Daisy Buchanan on a budget, I turned to my closet for some vintage pieces such as the beaded handbag and to Forever 21 for some fab necklaces, hair accesories and the dress. The cream cutout top is a recent find from Necessary Clothing in NYC and the white blouse with marquise beaded shoulders is from Zara last year. The draped necklace is about 15 years old from Express....so vintage Express? The pearl necklace and hair pins were gifts. I love the soft blushes and creams lately. I think the tops will look great with denim or lacey shorts. I will round the looks out with my nude shoes. I'm in love with these looks!
