Fashion Shoes and Accessories

A black, gold and leather affair

May 7, 2016

Historically speaking, I never really was much of a t-shirt wearer because I considered them too plain.  My how times have changed! Fast forward to the dawn of enlightenment when I learned about the power of accessories. They can transform an otherwise  simple outfit into one that’s chic and  well put together! I chose a gold-toned bracelet and gold plated reflective belt to spice up this outfit. Well the vegan leather *cough* pleather  skater skirt helped as well.

The bracelet reminds me of Egyptian wrist cuffs. I love it! I scored this particular bracelet years ago from Forever 21 if my memory serves me right. I found this one that bears an uncanny resemblance to the one I have on.

Remember when gold reflective belts were a trend a few years ago, and everyone and their mothers had them? Well, I still proudly wear mine. I’ve found that they add an extra ‘ooomph’ to my outfits by cinching my waist. I wear them with everything from jumpsuits, to skirts, to dresses. I purchased the one I have on here from ebay.

…and finally the bag!

How much do I love this bag/backpack? Let me count the ways. I absolutely love the versatility it offers. I’ve carried it everywhere from business meetings, to casual meetups with friends. I can carry it by the strap or don it on my back depending on what side of the bed I woke up on that particular day.  I purchased it from New Look in London 2 years ago and it’s still as good as new. While not carbon copies, here are  two similar bags:
