Much More Black

Casual Friday Outfit

I’ve been watching nothing but The Newsroom on HBOGo and Netflix movies where Edith Head served as the costume designer. I made a list of the films she worked and I am determined to watch them all. Starting with Funny Face, Roman Holiday, Rear Window, Sabrina, and What a Way to Go.

Anyway.

Binge watching these two things simultaneously is starting to show up in my  outfit choices. I want to look both ladylike and witty.

For my Newsroom fans, I smirked a bit when Will said, “snark is the idiot’s version of wit.”

Like today. I’m wearing a faux leather pencil skirt with suede d’Orsay pumps that always scream ladylike to me, but paired with the graphic t-shirt, messy bun, and bright lips, keep things interesting.

Oh, and my updated doctor’s satchel. That really isn’t a doctor’s satchel. But it reminds me of something that one of Ms. Head’s leading ladies would have carried. For the record, it too meets my ladylike but witty requirement because while the shape is sophisticated, the patent leather and Versace logo keep things fun.

p.s. This bag holds everything and is on sale right now at vente-privee for $229 with a host of other Versace accessories. I have my eye on a  gold Mr. T-esque watch that would Drake and Migos jealous. The sale ends on August 24 at 9 a.m.

There’s something else that I noticed.

In between wishing Sloane and Don would just be together–same with Maggie and Jim–already, I cleaned out my closet. My mom would be proud. I gave a massive donation to Goodwill and remembered to get a receipt for a tax write-off.

What’s leftover is noticeably different than the wardrobe I moved here with. There is much more black. [/inlinetweet]Much more leather and many more suede pumps.

I became a lady who wears d’Orsay pumps and carries updated doctor’s satchels. Something’s up and I’m not sure The Newsroom and Edith Head are entirely to blame for that.

What’s influencing your style these days?

    Classic basic pieces are winners for me right now. The addition of fun and colorful accessories is always a winner as well. The Versace doctor bag, oh so chic!!
