Outfit Of The Day For October 23, 2012. Blackest Black Accessories

October 23, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day


I am getting tired seeing my own face in my Outfit Of The Day photos, so you will see a new approach to my posts. I am doing my own photography, and will do some unusual poses (because I am bored!) and my head will be cropped out as often as possible.

For today’s outfit, I am wearing this Lafayette 148 New York Dress in a reptile print with all black accessories. You can get the same look with any patterned sheath dress. I love the richness of black suede in my obi-style belt and booties. Black suede totally absorbs all light so it is a deep matte black. The black haircalf clutch adds more black on black with additional texture.
