Lookbook: Back to Black

2/24/2014

Sunday was my birthday so thanks so much for all the wonderful wishes I received over social media. It was pretty low-key with just a nice dinner and a movie. But the hubs did get me a brand new camera so Amen to that.

Also, I just got back from WWDMAGIC in Las Vegas so I used my weekend as a time for total relaxation, even though I wish I still had one more day to do nothing. Oh, and by total relaxation, I mean watching the entire second season of American Horror Story: Asylum. Have you seen it? Let's chat about it on Twitter because I've got lots to say.

As far as the look goes, I picked up the hat just minutes before the shoot because I realized how good it would look with the gray in the pants. A few of the pieces I'm wearing are from brands I met at MAGIC, including the top from US-based brand Jaleh (don't you just love the back), the mint colored clutch from Urban Expressions, the eye-catching necklace by Suzywan Deluxe (everything they make is a color pop dream), the fun bracelet by Bombshell Accessories, and the Chinese Laundry beauties.

And in case you're wondering, I absolutely love the fit and feel of these Peter Pilotto pants. They will be a long time closet staple, along with the Jaleh top as well.
What do you muses think about this look?
