Back in Black

My friends often tease me about my penchant for black clothing, but I always go back to my black dresses time after time. I always feel pulled together in black, and most of my closet is black, white and grey. I've recently started breaking what many would call a cardinal style sin- mixing in brown and black. Today, for work, I wore my favorite American Apparel dress, brown studded Gap belt, brown crocodile embossed T-strap shoes, and my sunglass standby, my Ray Ban wayfarers.

During the hot Summer months, I always seem to pile on more jewelry than in the Winter. I've found that it is a great way to add some interest to an outfit without adding any additional layers. Today I wore a necklace and sapphire earrings that are family heirlooms, a vintage gold bangle, and my favorite Made Her Think ring.


  1. I love brown and black together! Whoever is against it is seriously demented. And that ring is fabulous, it reminds me of a small gem-like clutch Kim Kardashian seems to own in every color.

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks brown and black is a good combo! Thanks on the ring- I seriously wear it all the time! Made Her Think makes it in silver, too if you are interested!
