black swan

I haven't actually seen the movie yet but that didn't stop me from paying homage. This skirt flares out a little bit like a tutu and the the obvious footwear choice for this tribute outfit was my Lanvin ballet flats.

  1. Love the leather skirt like that, much more intresting because it's not a skin-hugging mini type!

  2. You wear leather so beautifully. I like how you mix it with cozy pieces like the poncho and the merino leggings.
    I'm wary to see Black Swan since it's labeled as a "horror" movie. I don't want to see buckets of blood raining from the ceiling.

  3. Love the Rick Owens poncho! I like how cozy you look up top and sleek on the bottom. Beautiful outfit.

  4. I believe I'm seeing it tonight! Love this look so much..those shorts were such a good find.

  5. beauuuutiful sweater! it looks so cozy. i was just reading that because of black swan, ballet-inspired outfits would be huge this seasion, and i was thinking NOOO! pink tutus and wrap sweaters, ugh! but you are ballet inspired in the best possible way. ~joelle

  6. that's such a good look for you. you braved the cold in bare ankles?!?!
    went to c21 trying to dig up leather items, but found nothing and lost my ebay bid for leather shorts. i quite like the leather items as they're so versatile and go with so much.

  7. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say, "wow, that Hermes cuff is pretty awesome!"

  8. haven't seen the movie yet, but the trailer looks very promising.
    your leather skirt is gorgeous,but I think I said that before.

  9. I've been eyeing an RO skirt + shorts combo on eBay similar to that skirt you got there.

    I was having mucho remorse as well over not getting the yellow gold ones. So much so that I kept calling all the boutiques asking about them. When the rose gold ones popped up recently I figured I'd better jump on it. Been wanting a rose gold something anyway. But yes, my heart belongs to the yellow gold.

    Rumors of silver?......

  10. aah the lanvin flats, always loved them!

  11. i've been searching high and low for comfortable black flats!
    love the poncho black swan was amazing but you probably heard word of mouth from a gajillion others
