I was thinking it would be fun to do color formulas like we do chemical formulas. Instead of H2O, we could write Bl4Si2 when we wore four elements in black and 2 in silver. Or, we could do it in French to make it more obscure and seem more fashionable and chic and write out Nr4Ar2. Yes, there you have it. Sometimes my mind goes off on odd tangents and speculative journeys. This outfit sent me off on that journey while I was wondering how to explain what in the heck I am doing wearing black hair. Actually, the explanation is quite simple. I saw this hairstyle from !syDS! for the Accessory Fair and just love it – and they only made it in black and white and it’s no mod so I could not tint it. In between thinking about sending out a call to Redheads of the World to Unite and storm the barricades and swooning over its bold and audacious styling, I just had to wear it. Even if it’s not red. So one of the black elements is the hair.
The delightful necklace and earrings from Cystal Line bring in both black and silver elements in a design that is surprisingly delicate considering its size. With black and white crystals in web of spun silver, it’s truly a delightful piece of jewelry and would qualify as a staple investment piece for its versatility and style.
The third black element is the stunning Geovana dress from L’Abel’s newest collection. A structured, closely fitted jacket and pencil skirt made of gorgeous black on black floral brocade. Although reminiscent of the vintage designs under her other label, Ivalde, with the closely fitted jacket and skirt, this dress is relentlessly modern thanks to to upturned shoulder pads. Thankfully, the shoulder pads are restrained enough to still look feminine and proportionate and don’t cross the line into faddishness.
The fourth black and second silver elements come from a pair of oldies but goodies. The Wicked shoes from Digit Darkes. I don’t care how many times I clean my inventory, these wonderful shoes I bought back in 2007 will stay because there really is nothing else like them. I love their stripey goodness!
