Onyx

As you've probably noticed, I really love wearing black. When in doubt, I always wear something black. Wore one of my favorite black blazers the other day...
This vintage jacket has been re-worked. We made the shoulders a bit sharper, added darts for a more fitted waist, and changed the velvet buttons. Worn with an American Apparel U-neck dress, vintage jewelry and satin pleated clutch, Super sunglasses, and Alaia ankle-strap pumps.
Wear these shoes way too much... I have to go take them to get resoled!

So I hope you get this in the mass of comments. I just found your blog. Wanted to know how you put so many photos up all the time? Who takes them for you or do you have some type of tri pod that you carry around with you? I just started a blog (in the baby stages) and photos always seem to be an after thought. Any pointers? check out my bloc lifejsinclair.blogspot.com
