Black Magic

Screen+shot+2011-10-13+at+9.46.06+AM19 110 316

Lately I have been feeling really uninspired by my closet. I did a massive closet clean-out (also talked about here) a few weeks ago where I threw out anything I had not worn in the past six months. I thought this would help be feel renewed and ready to style but…
sadly I still feel a little uninspired. This is why my tried and true love for all black never waivers. It is seriously like magic. You can feel great while not spending hours in your closeting begging the fashion Gods to tell you what to wear. Other benefit, it is normally very wallet friendly.
Key pieces for this look are; a pair of great skinnies (jeans, leggings, or pants), a black sweater with texture (I like this one as well as this one) and a killer pair of flats, boots, or heels. Voilà, you have achieved Tous Noir!

    There’s something about a monochrome look that is so chic in its simplicity – this is no exception…you look fabulous!

    All black is definitely my go-to when I’m feeling uninspired, too. You really can’t go wrong with it!

    If you don’t mind the idea of other people wearing the clothes you don’t want anymore you should try bringing them to a resale shop! I tried this recently with only about 10 pieces and walked away with $46 after two 15 minute stops. Better than just throwing them out in my book!

    Love the all black look. The red of your loubs, lips, & the car behind you really add a nice pop of color to this outfit! Classic/perfection!

    I need to do the same thing with my closet, I have a lot of things that I don’t wear all that often but just can’t seem to get rid of.
    All black is always a good solution, he he :)

    I love this look on you! And the lip-too gorg!

    You’re always so chic, Mary – how did you get your hair to look like that?! So effortless. I really feel like we have the same style! I’m always wearing dainty jewelry with either light, blush tones or a lot of black, too. : )

    I’m sorry your closet clean out didn’t have the results you were hoping for (and now I have another reason to prolong cleaning out mine)
    But you make all black look so good! I’ve never really tried it myself!

    I am a huge fan of an all black outfit (truthfully, I opt for some version of this multiple days per week!) and you are rocking this one! The red lip and gorgeous pumps just make it!
