69



Ashley Fogel top, Kate Sylvester skirt, Karen Walker blazer (similar), Topshop loafers

Black on Black. A reader asked me on Formspring if I would mind doing an outfit post wearing my new purchase from Kate Sylvester, which as luck would have it, I had planned on wearing today. I had initially tried this on about a month back, but was slightly in between sizes so decided to come back another time. Good thing I waited, as I managed to snap it up 50% off.

While wearing all black can sometimes come off as seeming a bit morbid, it's come to be known as the Wellington uniform. Having grown up in this city, reaching for black in the morning to pull together an outfit is a sub-conscious act more than anything. Okay, well, I'm off to finish packing my suitcase, one more sleep!!

  1. Black goes with everything and looks chic on its own. Personally I am a victim of the completely black ensemble too, because it's just so failsafe. You look wonderful! xo

  16. Some people say black-on-black outfits are boring, which is one word that definitely can't be used to describe your outfit here! I really like the mix of fabrics - it's so interesting and pretty xx
