In today’s post I’m going away a bit from my signature color. Well the bright green Michael Kors purse does keep my streak alive. It also goes to show how even just one eye catching, colorful accessory can make a big difference to an otherwise mostly black and white look.
But for me the star of today’s post is my animal fur print hat. I grew up in northern China not too far from the border with Russia. These hats always remind me of the pictures we would see of the Russian women dressed for winter. This outfit would look right at home if I were strolling the streets of Moscow. The polka-dot sweater almost looks like an extension of the leopard print spots on the warm hat and the black and white faux fur vest nicely complete the theme.
Another trade secret to help brighten up a black outfit is to add some sparkly bling. For this you can use either a sequined top or dangly necklace. Oh, and about that green purse? It’s just the right size for a tin of your favorite Caspian Sea Caviar or maybe a small nip of something to chase away the Siberian chill.
