All About Black.

Wednesday, 4 July 2012


Just as my sister pointed out to me this morning, I hardly ever wear all black. I tend to shy away from it, for reasons I'm not entirely sure of, but today I decided to live on the edge and go for such an ensemble! 
It's hard to believe that we're in July as the weather feels more like early spring/late autumn, but that's good Ol' Britain for you. In my bag I have an umbrella, sunglasses and scarf because here, one can experience all seasons in just one day! Haha!


Top : New Look
Disco Pants : American Apparel
Blazer : Internacionale
Shoes : Zara
Bag : Zara
Necklace & Bracelets : H&M
Watch Aldo

Lips : Ruby Woo by MAC (Worn with Brick Lipliner, also by MAC)

You look lovely! I tend to shy away from black during the summer months, because i feel as though we have 7 months of crappy weather here in North eastern US, so i try to go bright when I can. You make me want to go dark now! lol, great look! xoxo

Gavina Dhillon said...

I feel like I can't wear all black because I have dark skin and long black hair but you look abolutely gorgeous in all black! Jealous.

Chi-Chi said...

my problem was that I always wore black! in fact this outfit is so ideal for me......it's only really been in the last year or so that i have started to have more colour in my wardrobe x

The Disco pants do have a bit of Beyonce hotness about them. Love the red lip too. You make it sexy but the looser top makes it just a little more natural and not in your face. Have a really lovely summer, for the moments when it's here!

Onyxsta said...
