Plus ça change..

(Ph/Private)

In France there is a saying that goes "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" - meaning "the more things change, the more they stay the same". Despite the uncharacteristic pop of color (neon neckwear, red legwear and orange outerwear) that happened on this side of the rainbow last week, I can't help but return to my favorite sartorial cocktail: graphic black 'n white with a dash of sportiness and a side order of leather. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Except for the white wedges. The above have not been shopped clean, but rather shopped afresh. As in, I ordered a new pair because mine were looking a little tired. Also worth noting, I'm trialing Balmain-ish hoops and embracing Balenciaga-esque non-marital band rings. So far, finding it hard to deal with the sexiness of the earrings, but the knuckle dusters help re-ajust the balance. Bon week-end les amis. 

I'm wearing a silk bomber jacket by Carin Wester, a Zara sweatshirt over a Zadig et Voltaire tunisien and a very old H&M trend leather skirt (or here). The wedges are by Mango, the stack rings H&M, the hoop earrings ASOS and the sequin clutch is Zara.

  14. That split leather skirt is absolutely killer - Looks fabulous on you - And I adore that glittery clutch.

  15. Cool skirt! The perfect split if you ask me and I find that pretty hard to find in skirts.
    Fun substitute for the Balenciaga prettiness on your hands too!

  38. Ahh. You're fantastic.

    Love that you've found a look and stuck to it. Very respectable. I think the wind all blowing up in yo' hair and all makes for an interesting contrast to the black and white and leather all over.

    You're also convincing me, post by post, that I need some H&M or ASOS stackable rings.

    PS: I HAVE THIS SKIRT.
    So I'm feeling extra legitimate right now.
    I'll hold onto this as I go sell my soul for some horrible fast fashion piece as and urban outfitters sale.
