Black trousers - Gap Perfect Trousers Pants
Black leather booties - Fitzwell "Andrea"
Necklace - Ann Taylor (no longer available - Spring 2010)
Bracelet - eBay
The eBay seller stated this is a bracelet from Anthropologie - I don't really know because there is no tags or stamps on it to show the brand/store. I don't really care because it was only $25.00 (and shipping only $1) and it's super cute. I was in need of a brushed gold bracelet - the one I have from Twisted Silver has really gotten tarnished and icky over the years and needs to be retired (or rejuvenated in some crafty way). I liked that this bracelet had some bling to it - thought it would be a great piece with an LBD or even with a simple tank and jeans come spring. By the way, quite pleased with this eBay seller - this was shipped quickly in a padded envelope, wrapped in a red chiffon fabric.
Figure the accessories make up for a pretty boring outfit. I have a really busy week at work and so many non-work responsibilities that it's nice to be able to just grab a random top and bottom from the closet and know it will work together, even if it's not the most creative ensemble. I can't stress enough how important it is to own a wardrobe of staples that will mix and match with ease, and to remove from your closet anything you can't wear right now. I find that having most pieces solids, and finding creativity in accent pieces and accessories makes my base wardrobe even more versatile. Great for a busy person!
