i had to do this outfit post to make a point: some pieces are worth investing in. this black, mock-turtleneck was my mom’s, and she bought it in the late 90’s. and the jumper, i bought at Intermix and wore for my first interview in college. just like these pieces, a lot of my favorite lines are not the ones in the big department stores–when you are ready to invest, that’s why i love Intermix because they do a great job of mixing in the smaller, start-up lines that are worth the money.
i love the leather on the sleeves.
when you are wearing all black, it’s nice to break it up with pattern or colored tights.
