Ok, I cannot begin to tell you how freaking crazy I am about this new black crop top I got from Aritzia. It kinda looks like the ones that Complex Geometries makes, no? Except for a fraction of the price. I love it when you can just wear something so elementarily simple (like a black tshirt) and twist it and pull into something unique.

Oh! and I finally received my faux leather Silence&Noise pants from my friend Serena (thanks beautiful!) and they fit like a dream! For those of you who may remember a post a while back, I had bought a pair of Horace leather pants from OAKNYC for way too much and they ended up fitting like shit. I seriously had not worn such ill-fitting pants in my life! 

Black: my friend and foe. Friend because it’s so easy to wear. Foe because it can make me look way too shrunken if worn in the wrong dimensions. So, with some trepidation, I threw this outfit together and to my surprise it worked out brilliantly! I really love it. I think I’m going to wear it to my next outing. It makes me feel so badaaaaas!!

Anyways, this week has been pretty busy. I’m going to start a store linked to my blog in about a month or so. I have so much stuff (some of which still has tags on them) that I just don’t have enough room for. I will keep everyone posted, but it’s pretty exciting. Otherwise, what else? I’ve been climbing, getting into trouble with boys, reading a book on yoga discipline (I’m curious), and polishing off some new jewelry posts. 

Such sad news about MJ. My Dad was obsessed with Motown, so I grew up with a lot of Jackson 5. Really fond memories.

Wearing Wilfred cropped tshirt, Silence&noise faux leather skinny pants, Forever21 fringe booties, Alexander Wang Brenda bag, mix of jewelry from Forever21, Tiffany’s, and H&M.

    Hey Connie!
    Yeah…when it comes to bags, I’m a little less adventurous in terms of color. I also have never seen anything that I’m willing to splurge on that’s not black/white. We’ll see!!
