Black tuxedo, black tuxedo, black, black, black

Today was day 1 of the Neutrals Week challenge. Today's colour choice was black.

Necklace: Fireworks Gallery (local store) 
Dress: Daniela Besso on Etsy
Belt: Lüt Boutique in Vancouver
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik bought at Jeffrey in NYC

This was pretty easy to pull together. Jersey knit dress + belt + witchy shoes = fabulous.

Both my necklace and watch include gold elements which match the zipper on the belt which pulls it together and the argyle tights keep it from being too plain.

Wearing black does make me feel more polished but it also brings out my inner Gothwannabe.

When I bought these shoes in NYC I said that they looked "witchy" which I totally meant as a complement but the sales clerk seemed put out by that. Maybe I should have called them  "pilgrim" shoes?

Tomorrow's challenge for neutrals week is grey.

If you don't recognize the post's title, it's a line from a song by Maestro Fresh Wes from 1989.  My sister bought me this tape when I was in the hospital recovering from surgery to my foot.


  1. Fabulous tights for an all black ensemble!

  2. Love the tights! The black dress looks great too, super comfy.

  3. I'm seeing so many awesome tights on people I am just going to have to go shopping for some now! I love the pattern on yours, they are so cute! I could never wear shoes like those, but they look great on you!

  4. I love these tights and your shoes are very witchy and cool :D

  5. This is very chic! I love your tights. It does have a 'witchy' feel. Nothing wrong with that, random cashier! The kitten heel is so adorable. Metallic details are perfect with an all black outfit.
