One of my brothers had bought me a black faux fur vest for Christmas. Yesterday it arrived in the mail, much to my heart’s content. I was so excited that I did a few karate chops (or what people who don’t practice martial arts believe to be karate chops) and then planned an outfit around my fake beast.
All the kids at work LOVED this thing (I work at a supplemental education center). I can’t tell you how many times my students “pet” me. I was getting hugs every ten minutes — I have never felt so loved in my life!
As you can see, I’m of the opinion that a black-on-black color scheme isn’t limited to Bentleys and Phantoms. I chose to wear my black vest with a black top, black pants, and black boots because black almost always look great with black.
Also, a black fur vest with an iridescent shard necklace looks so ridiculously cool together; I feel like a warrior ice queen who’s about to ride a silky black horse across a frost-covered plain into battle. I bought the necklace at Forever 21 last night for $9 and change. I couldn’t resist!
