peacock



Cape (worn like this)- Gifted; Skirt, Top & Shoes- Thrifted; Bracelet- Borrowed; Purse- Vintage; Nail Polish- Posh by Revlon

It was only during my personal black clothing challenge this week that I truly realized how much black attire I own.  I could continue on for another month, never repeating the same inky outfit.  For a gal who loves brights, I certainly own a lot of black!

My clothing may be dark but I added bright green accessories and this fabulous vintage beaded peacock purse for visual interest.  I don't know how people wear all black, all the time, in my opinion it lacks both creativity and personality and makes you feel pretty blah and uninspired. 

After a week of wearing black, I'm looking forward to having fun with colour & I signed up for Megan & Keely's fall colour trend challenge.

What was your favourite black ensemble of mine this week?

  3. I think today's outfit is my favorite. The greens playing off the black are fabulous. We are participating in the challenge too. They are always fun to see what everyone comes up with. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. you can never have too much black! They're the perfect vehicle for other colors!!! I am actually really swooning over the sleeve detail in that top. It's gorgeous.

  5. I'm like you Emily - colour just makes me happy. I guess neither of us should move to NYC. I can't decide which is more awesome - your purse or that capelet/cardigan piece. Both have really exquisite detailing, but that purse has a pretty great folksy vibe.

  7. If you were here, I'd steal your peacock bag and I wouldn't feel ashamed at all! Freakin' adorable. I liked your Halloween outfit best.

  11. Emily that purse is so darn fantastic. I just found a beaded beauty with a different motif. I am going to use it this week. You did the right thing with this lovely outfit by adding bright, beautiful accents. dawn suitcase vignettes

  14. What a fun bag! Very neat. It's strange seeing you in black ensembles, they look good but I'm so used to seeing you wearig lots of bright colours. I don't know how people can wear balck all the time either, especially black on black it seems so plain.

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
