Back to black

Military black jacket, Sass and bide, winter fashion 2011, Sydney fashion blog, crashingred

I know bright colors are trending now but… I cannot help but keep coming back to black. That’s how I feel this winter. As much as I love red I am also addicted to dark lipsticks and onyx black nails too. I remember the first black nail polish I bought in London, which when brought back home to Siberia, created a lot of fuss and even resulted in me being suspended from lectures. Little did they know about fashion. When wearing all black, go for layers of different textures to avoid being too uniform. A military style jacket with a feminine dress, wool with leather, lace with jersey… you name it.

Layering and combining different styles in one monochrome outfit is chic. Yet nothing is wrong with black as a proclamation of minimalism… remember LBD? Always chic! But that will be another post, soon, when I’m finally able to leave my maternity clothing. Yes, lovelies, what you see is my kind of maternity clothing. It may be my last post in this condition! I should say my lovelies, the Day X may happen very soon (like very, very soon!). So if all of a sudden I disappear, then you know what is happening. I know you are curious but there will be no blogging from birthing suite! LOL

The black look:

Sass and Bide jacket; Zomp shoes; Witchery dress; L’Oreal Color Rich in Pure Burgundy lipstick; Mimco ring
