Since New York was bitterly cold – I layered a pair of Insight Beanpole Ripped Jeans (similar here) over a pair of tights for warmth – they’re ombre colored, going from light gray at the top to charcoal at the bottom, so the color just barely peeks through the rips in the jeans. I was going to layer over turquoise tights, but it really didn’t go with the top.
The top I made out of charcoal gray lightweight suiting fabric. I know it’s hard to see – but it has a center front pleat, and then a double-layered ruffle at the bottom, with grey chiffon sandwiched in between. You can wear it with a plain skirt to look business-like or over jeans (like here) to be more casual.
I’m thinking it would be better without the front pleat and with a rounded neckline instead of the semi-V neck it has now. What do you guys think?
This is a fabulous tissue-weight tee from Mossimo (Target) that I wore TONS as a layering piece in New York. It’s so soft and surprisingly warm – best $9.99 I ever spent!!
The silver stretch pyramid bracelet is no longer available from Forever21 but the Lacquered Pyramid Bangle (in Black/Gold or Black/Silver) is here for $4.80.
Handmade studded fabric ring. I wear this all the time.
I am growing more and more in love with this color of Chanel nail polish. (Saw it on WhoWhatWear, to be honest, and though I was originally looking for O.P.I. Over the Taupe, this is pretty lovely.) It’s a deep mushroom color that in some lights looks like a dark cafe latte color, and in some a light gray with the slightest hint of brown. Plus, it lasts a really long time since it’s Chanel and great quality.
I also added my clip-on Priscilla hair extensions…I so miss my long hair!! (Can’t wait til this current cut grows out…*sigh*) I
love that the extensions are already curly and heat-resistant so I can style them how I want to. Wilshire Wigs has a great selection of clip-in extensions…HairDo hair extensions (from Ken Paves and Jessica Simpson) are super-realistic and great quality!
