Now that I'm slowly trying to find normalcy in my own life, I wish the weather were warmer and sunnier. It would take away some of the pain. That's precisely what the day was like when I did this 2nd look for the AJC photo shoot. If you remember in my last post, the 1st look was a classic mix of Audrey, Marilyn with a slight dose of wannabe Chanel. I love that look, actually.
But this one is just as timeless and completely practical. It's only ironic I'd share an all black look considering how I started this post, but the universe is working like that these days.
There is vibrance and happiness in all that dark color, though! I didn't realize until after the shoot that the theme was animalistic. The shirt, the brooches, the rings, the earrings--- not sure what was on my subconscious, but I kinda like the vibe.
The sparkly tee has become one of my faves and was more recently worn here.... the hat is a vintage staple I picked up years ago in Old Town Alexandria and the shoes were a steal I could talk about forever. This is one the and only designer shoe I cook in. All others are reserved for more appropriate occasions. There's just something sexy special about the color, the strappiness and the super pique toe! I think they're from Spring '05.
And of course, on a sunny day like this one back in April, the sunnies are a must. Gucci never fails.
