Muted

(Ainsley black dress, Calico coat, Liebeskind Berlin bag, Mango blue stone ring, Ax + Apple necklace, Joie boots)

It's been getting more and more chilly, but I'm loving it...especially now that my apartment has become so cozy! Right now, I've been having my mom in town, and now my sister has joined in on the fun! I love having them stay with me. It's like I never left home. Plus, they have been helping me keep my place super organized. I covet the pieces I'm wearing here as if they were my babies. This long, lean Ainsley dress got me hooked the moment I tried it on. I love the classic neckline with the pretty open back. It's easy when you have a boy-like body like mine...no bra necessary hehe! Dressed down with a pair of leather boots and a fur coat, I made way for a night out on the town, attending events (oh and bringing my mom along). Sometimes I think the crazy woman's a lot like me!

Very dark and edgy, but super sophisticated. Your ring and bag are so lovely and it all mixes very well together.

I'm a huge fan of low-back dresses, and that one looks great on you. Looking the fur and blue-stone ring, too.

Kate said...

I love the silhouette the skirt of the dress gives you, and the back is incredible! Your ring is amazing too, a lovely subtle pop of colour against the black!

Love those boots. So cool that you get along well with your mom.

Is the front of that dress open? Having a difficult time deconstructing the design.
