Because I work for myself, its sometimes hard to find occasions to dress up when I’m usually doing mundane things everyday like running errands and uh, tweeting. However, you don’t always need a reason to break out your highest heels and dramatic makeup. This outfit isn’t what I’d consider over-the-top but I do love wearing black lips to the post office or the grocery store during the day.
I decided I would try to build an outfit around these black mary-janes that I got from Forever21 since I have yet to wear them. In my mind, they lend themselves to more cute-sy outfits and I own nothing of that sort so I dug out this hat I got from Torrid forever ago and paired them with my black silk kaftan. My biker jacket from Evans completes this girly-yet edgy-funeral-chic thing that’s going on here. There was no real idea or direction for this outfit and sometimes that’s the best direction to go in. Let it flow and such.
