How to infuse black with more life

IMG_2337When I still had my shop I have sometimes been asked how one could wear black dresses other than black. Some women were afraid to look like as if they were on their way to a funeral…

I personally love the way Spanish or Sicilian women wear black combined with lace and with their hair styled severely. But not every dress suits such a styling – like mine of today.

So this is why I chose some grey elements like my new shoes, my stockings and my bag. And grace to the anthracite shades of my leather jacket the whole look appears more like different Greys than too dark and black only. With this simple change of the shoes it already seems to be lighter than it was last time with black heels.

Elements of my look:
Chloe inspired dress (DIYs I N°31)
Leather jacket by Schumacher (different by lovely as well by Iro)
Bag by 8 (here an alternative by Coccinelle)
Heels by Marc Ellis
Shades by DvF (These are also nice by Prada)

Unbelievable but it is Saturday again – where has this week gone???

Have a nice weekend – enjoy it,
