the most expensive sweater. In fact, it was the skirt that I found first. Sure, it's just a simple stripey skirt at first glance.
But look at that pattern -- the stripes are graduated, narrower at the waist & wider at the hem. It gives a subtle slimming effect when combined with the A-line shape, very elegant too.
This is not something I could recreate by simply sewing a skirt from stripey fabric in my stash -- this specific fabric had to be custom printed. No wonder it cost so much!
What I'm wearing:
Black lace jacket, Macy's
Black T-shirt, Target
Black & white striped A-line skirt, White House Black Market
Black abstract-pattern lace tights, unknown brand
Black slingback kitten-heel pumps, Payless Shoe Source
Gunmetal & rhinestone necklace, random accessory store
Black & white stripey bead earrings, Kohl's
Black & white flower hair pin, random accessory store
Silver cocktail ring, gift from Kendra, bought in Paris
Vamp lipstick, Chanel
Erase Paste concealer, Benefit (this stuff rocks!)
It's probably considered gauche, but I love wearing stockings with slingbacks. Just looks sexy to me, at least when the hose are fishnets, lacey, or stripey. The contrast of a patterned stocking & that slingback on the heel is cool.
