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.
