Last week I was in a particularly dark mood, well not really in terms of my mood but inspired by a post I did about 4 years ago at an Agent Provocateur fashion show when I wore an all black ensemble with black lipstick. Weird, but many times when I need inspiration I just look back at my older posts and I always find something and I haven’t sported a dark lip in a while so that was the inspiration. I didn’t want to go all black on this day despite having an important meeting to attend but I still wanted to stick with the idea so I wore a deep shade of purple lipstick, smokey eyes, and a Betsey Johnson jacket and dress combo. “When all else fails resort to Betsey” my friend Andrea would say..and because most of my clothes were in boxes because I was moving…I went with it. My leather purse was also Betsey, go figure. I kept my accessories light as always and went with some silver rings and my favorite black fluorescent Tarina Tarantino skull studs. I also went with my Christian Louboutin booties that have been collecting dust since I bought them because I was waiting for the perfect opportunity. This was definitely it. They matched my outfit perfectly!
I have this jacket in a Marilyn print as well. I just love it so much I must have it in many color ways. I love that wearing this one with the dress isn’t overkill. Such great colors!Of course I had to belt it. I belt everything. I like to accentuate the waist.My Betsey Johnson purse has become my favorite go-to item as well. It just matches most of what I wear on a regular day basis. Her leather bags really hold up well. I’ve had many of mine for years and they are still in pristine condition.
How amazing are these Christian Louboutin booties!!! Not sure why I haven’t utilized them since I got them but I must be on drugs. I will definitely bust out these bad boys some more.
Oh..and despite looking like an evil step-child, my meeting went great!
