I even donated one of my long time wardrobe basics, a black turtleneck shirt, to the Goodwill.
The Deets: Anthropologie jacket (super clearance years ago); Turtleneck (Target last year); Levi stretch bootcut jeans (Goodwill); LifeStride booties (old); Rhinestone necklace (Loft clearance, old)
But then last year, on one of my infrequent trips to Target, I surreptitiously dropped a new black turtleneck into my shopping cart. I mean I paid for it an' all, but it felt a little like shoplifting. I put it in the back of my closet, and then ignored it, fearing my readers would find it to be a huge yawn if I wore it on the blog.
However, an opportunity to have dinner with some besties arose last night. After three months of living on a bone marrow transplant unit, that black turtleneck suddenly looked desirable, beautiful, and well, honest. I love black clothes, I truly do.
The Deets: Vintage silver bangles (two a gift from Jean of Dross into Gold)
and my Ronald McDonald House ID bracelet
Besides, black is an awesome backdrop for The Bling.
