Black & Gold






Took advantage of the beautiful lighting I had in my room the other day and took some quick photos! I wore a vintage bolero jacket, American Apparel black unitard, vintage sleeveless blazer and gold earrings, and Aldo multi-strap pumps. 
The leather clutch with the woven hem is one of the first vintage clutches I ever bought- it was my favorite like three years ago and I love it even more now that it's all worn out..
Packing for Park City has been quite hectic and everything that's in my oversized luggage is a little less than glamourous- ski socks, waterproof boots with the fur (faux fur!!!!), thermal undergarments, mittens, and earmuffs. I find it so funny how I always pack like I'm moving to another country, when I'm only going to be gone for three days! Hopefully I'll get a chance to take photos while I'm out there! 


Hope everyone is having a gorge day so far!

love your shoes, this is the second time i've seen them on a blog and they always looks so great.


Clothes Are Cute

adrienne said...

love the multistrap shoes! i never wouldve guessed Aldo...i've had such bad experience with their shoes, they hurt me :(
i loooooove your new header by the way!!

lara.tobin.styling said...

WOW my mouth just dropped when I read that your shoes are from Aldo. Just goes to show that there are some special stores that have high-quality looking shoes and fashion-forward styles, for a realistic price tag. If you had said that these were D&G I wouldn't have doubted it for a second. Think it's great that you highlight apparel/clothes that are affordable to the masses. Also takes a special eye to spot the winners in a chain store :)
Great outfit. Love the unitard I actually bought the same one yesterda...great taste!!

Marie said...

Great outfit, still love those shoes. Your room looks so nice from the little we see... would love to see how your style is interpreted in furniture and accessories!!

Is that Park City, Utah? I think I was there as a young child - my dad got his doctorate in Utah, and I was born there.. when I was born the dr. told my mom she'd be able to ski in 6 weeks and she said that's nice cause I can't ski now!

Have a wonderful time - hope you had a lovely thanksgiving. x

That jacket is amazing! Doesn't look very comfortable, but I love the combination of black and gold. And cute purse. I'm such an over-packer too...but when I try not to I always wish I had because I feel like I'm missing stuff!! Better safe than sorry.
