Woman in Black

October 7, 2009

This is the best look I’ve done in weeks…mornings have been hazy and busy, so I had no time and energy to put together a decent outfit, let alone makup or accessories. I know, there are women for whom it is no excuse. They make sure to look amazing every day – stylish outfit and flawlessly applied makup. And the worse they feel, the better they look – they use their appearance as a protection against the harsh reality. When everything is falling apart, they look even better.

Well, I am not one of them. When I feel crap I make sure I look even worse. Self-destructive streak? But of course!

I am wearing a cashmere polo neck jumper I thrifted at Swopwith.me, skinny jeans from Awear, boots from..sorry, don't remember.

I love them! They are super comfy and always make me feel confident. Whenever I feel like splurging on a pair of riding boots I think about these high heeled darlings and keep the money. Same applies when I think about brown suede boots.

I got the beads in Prague and made this necklace myself. The belt is from the auld Penney's.

    Totally know how you feel! Its probably one of the reasons I’ve given up posting outfit photos! It takes effort to feel polished and even though I do feel better when I look good, sometimes I don’t have the energy to put into looking pretty!

    I like the touches of red on the black. And those boots are perfect.

    The whole idea was supposed to motivate me to be pretty every day but it just doesn’t work that way! I won’t give up though…maybe one day I will be one of those women…

    I bought the shoes last Christmas, couldn’t really afford them but couldn’t resist.
