Here's the bit of purple from the 1950s Catwoman costume! Ok that is a bit far-fetched and honestly wasn't on my mind when I grabbed this bag. I chose this bag to wear with the outfit because the silver hardware went with the silver accessories and also because I wanted to add some color to the outfit. The dark purple is enough to stand out against the black/white but it isn't so bright that it becomes the statement item.
HELMUT Helmut Lang pullover / "A" New York blouse / Marc by Marc Jacobs leather pants / Rampage boots / Talbots bracelet, Rolex watch (Michael Kors version here) / Chanel east/west flap
I've been searching for a quality pair of leather pants since the beginning of the season and am pleased with these Marc by Marc Jacobs ones. They are more like pants (pockets on the back and zipper fly) and not leggings so that is good because I won't have to worry about finding long enough tops to cover my bum. I haven't gotten them hemmed though so that explains the bunching around the knees. These are definitely a closet staple and I can't wait to wear them again.
Happy January 8th everyone! What's so special about January 8th? Oh nothing, just that it's another day that we've made it through :) Hope everyone is having a good week and adjusting into the New Year okay. I got a bit shocked when I was greeted with "Happy New Year" earlier today because it already feels like we've gone so much into the year, time flies.
