In some instances, black and white is anything but basic.
This is one of those cases.
I felt like stepping out with an edgy ensemble last week, and a bit of both lace and leather goes a long way for a super-chic daytime look — so as long as you keep the rest of your look classic and your makeup fresh-faced.
My apologies for the near-radio silence on the site last week — as I alluded to on Twitter, there’s been a few exciting changes in my life recently that have resulted in a bit of writer’s block. And by writer’s block, I mean a few late nights and a few subsequent hangovers.
As they say, though, taking time to live life will only inspire your work. (And that’s my grown-up way of saying YOLO, bitches!)
At any rate, I believe the majority of my brain cells have replenished due to a variant of excessive hibernation, so it’s back to daily updates here on c+c this week.
Oh, and about those changes — I’ll tell you more about them later week. In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite pieces that I’ve had on rotation while running around town. During the day and after dark.
