Head to Toe

Back in Black

Yesterday morning, after I’d pulled this post together, I opened the Style Section in the New York Times and had a confirming moment when I saw Bill Cunningham’s On the Street entitled Inky. We’ve had a cold snap, and like a cashmere blanket, comfort food, and sleeping in my childhood bedroom, wearing black, dark charcoal, and midnight blue make me feel cozy.

Bootie, pea coat, bag, loafer, jeans, pump, coat, duffel, pants, shoulder bag.

  • This post made me so happy, Preston!

    I just purchased an inky duffle coat and suede kitten heel boots and I was JUST looking at the image of Kate Moss last week in between rehearsals.

    Sometimes I think I could just live in a fabulous coat, shoes and bag. Who needs the rest? 😉

  • Funny how you never notice someone is always wearing black, until it is pointed out. You focus more on the individual wearing it and their jewelry ,etc. The perfect canvas.

  • I wear a lot of black. Made the mistake of wearing color in Paris, never doing that again….

  • The image of the back of CBKennedy in all black with pencil skirt, gleaming gorgeous below the knee boots, jacket, stunning fabrics and topknot will forever be imprinted in my mind…

  • Black color, why is it so chic? «Black is the color of chic modernity, sobriety, intellectualism, mourning, sensuality … explains Karen Van Godtsenhoven » MoMu curator at the Fashion Museum in Antwerp. « It is an aesthetic posture which refers to the idea of ​​power(…) In the sixteenth century, fabrics dyed in black were extremely expensive and only rich people could afford it, » says Karen Van Godtsenhoven. Black color quickly became an outward sign of social status. To read more about: http://etvoila.info/black-color-why-is-it-so-chic/
