Black is Black

Our family's plan is to watch one movie each weekend during the summer holidays and as expected with 3 males in the family we have seen Spiderman and Avengers. Last night we went to see Dark Knight Rises; if you like Batman movies, I thought this one was pretty good - Anne Hathaway is great as Catwoman. So I was still in a dark frame of mind and since it was a miserable rainy day, I thought something black would be in order.

Pink Calico - Black and White

This is the MNG top from the mercadillo in Spain worn with a turtleneck underneath and my basic knit skirt (Kenneth Cole) and my Docs.  I like this type of pullover semi-tunic tops and Big J does too.  Don't have to worry about belt buckles, ties or buttons.  Just a basic rainy day look.

For Visible Monday, and Monday Mingle I blinged it up with these accessories; they are from a liquidator's - but I think the necklace is Avon of all things.

Pink Calico - Silver Accessories

They feel dressy and I'm never sure if I'm overdoing it.  But I like them, they look like stuff from another time don't they?

  1. This black outfit was perfect for today, especially with those boots! I wore all black too. Quite chilly and rainy and dark... Great purse repair in your last post too!

    1. Thanks Melanie - yes, still November here - others are looking forward to autumn and we are still looking to shed our dark colours!

  2. Isn't it crazy how a movie can influence how we dress? That's happened to me before too.
    I personally think black will ever be out of style, no matter how popular "color" is at any given moment. I like the whole look and feel of your outfit.

    1. Thanks Sheila: Oh, Sometimes I see someone on the train or on tv wearing a colour or pattern and then the next day I find myself copying it.

  3. I loved Anne as Catwoman too - and I feel your inspired outfit! I think your Docs are classics for the next 50 years and the jewelry is just the right touch for your rainy day. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday, Narda.

    1. Hey Patti - wasn't Anne Hathaway great? Best Catwoman yet, and I'm glad they did the romantic angle the way they did - it's true to the comics.

      I hope the Docs do stay in vogue for 50 years!

  4. I love your boots, they're so great with this outfit. They look brand new? I also love how the jewellery seems to mirror the pattern on the top - very nice indeed!

    I had a look at the previous post - you did a great job mending the snakeskin purse!

    1. Oh! I didn't notice that about the jewellery - good eye! The Docs are relatively new, just over half a year.

    1. Hey Terri: Thanks! I am not very good with the mix of styles look but love the boots because they're warm.
