Best of… November 11

Recently, while procrastinating in the fitting rooms at Bloomingdales, over buying (yet another) plain black dress, I scolded myself for being so boring.  Do I really need another black dress, I asked myself, the store assistant and my friends (whom I had dragged halfway across the mall to see this mundane ensemble)?  Probably not.  I bought it of course, under the pretence that I might bring it back if I changed my mind.  Not a chance.  I’m not really inclined to feel guilty après-purchase, but if I was looking for any justification for my impulse buy, it would come in the form of this little black dress:


Isn’t it perfect?  If I seen it in Bloomys’ tomorrow, I would whip it up and stash it away greedily with the rest.  This image (via Stockholm Streetstyle) reminded me of the appeal of simplicity in dressing- and so, November became the month to celebrate it:

Perfect glossy black nails, and laid-back November chic (that’s what I’m calling it), via Zipped and Turn it Inside Out.  I love that three of the ladies featured are wearing black ballet pumps- I wear mine to death.

I’m newly obsessed with these earrings (via Hey Pretty Thing).  Added bonus: they are only €6 from Topshop.  They should be in my ears right now, if I could only find them in-store.

Let’s keep it short and finish with the perfect winter outfit (via Zipped).  Minus the snakeskin brogues.  I’m not so sure about those.  The colour makes me feel a little ill.  But a snuggly cable-knit and leather?  Yes, please.


Something totally unrelated (hence the page-break):  I will be starting the long journey home to Ireland in two more sleeps’ time.  For three glorious weeks (three!).  I cannot ever remember being this excited.  What are your plans for Christmas?
