Ensemble du Jour

The Outfit

It's been raining and it's cold and blustery, so I needed something warm and snuggly. But after feeling so cranky yesterday, I wanted something that made me feel strong and kind of hot.

The dress was simple, a short black sweater dress and I'm in all black and white but the accessories are unique so they stood out.

I wore my Paraphernalia Poochie necklace and at least four people asked me where they could get pieces for themselves. Can you blame them? I adore Paraphernalia!

When I was in Asheville I found a new lingerie store and bought two cool pairs of stockings. One pair were baby blue fishnets and the other were these fleur de lis lace stockings.

I wanted to wear the lace stockings to add some additional pattern as well as great a more feminine counterpoint to my kick-ass Ann Demeulemeester boots. I love these boots way too much.

I don't think I've ever had a pair of shoes that make me feel as powerful and cool as these do.

They are once in a lifetime type shoes so I'm glad I have them. I took a ton of photos of them too.

On IFB forums there was a discussion today about how people go ga-ga over simple outfits and fierce heels but I think these flat boots are making me more excited than heels are right now.
You will be seeing more of these!

I like the sweater dress too-- do you remember where you got it? I'm having a hard time finding a cute one that fits well.

Anon - That sweater dress came from Target. Not sure if it's still there but if you click on the outfit image it will take you to Polyvore which has a link to the Target site.

This is a great post - especially the tight shot of your Poochie necklace. We loved yesterday's crankenstein photo, it was fabulous.
