|Outfit: Shirt Club Monaco, Skirt Club Monaco, Shoes J. Crew, Bag Chanel|
I'm a huge fan of monochrome, and honestly in this case, this outfit is a true representation of my closet. My clothing is literally probably 90% black or grey. In order to spice up this outfit I tried to match the leather details in the shirt with a "leather" skirt.
Both the shirt and the skirt are from Club Monaco and are pretty adorable. The shirt is still in stores, but the skirt was from their last fall collection, so the sizes available online are a bit sparse. You guys don't have to worry about me being sponsored by them though, I just have a serious shopping problem.
I finished the whole outfit off with this pointed suede shoes, a recent purchase from J. Crew, that I've been wearing everywhere. They're actually crazy comfortable as well, I have to stand around a lot for my job and these shoes have been given a surprising amount of work wear.
The purse shown here is part of Chanel's Fall 2011 collection and is called the "Boy Bag." The shape is inspired by the cartridge bags that hunters carried when going into the woods. Very different from the traditional quilted Chanel bags that you've seen in the past, the boy bag is made out of smooth, sleek glazed calf leather. There's still the iconic love letter pocket inside, but I think you'll find the new design to be simple and a bit masculine. The boy bag can be worn two ways: with the strap across the body, like above, or with the strap doubled up and placed over the shoulder, like below.
