Yes we do have some earth colors in our closet. It's not ALL-BLACK! Well, it's probably 90% BLACK. LOL. Anyway, I'm currently addicted to my quirky and very versatile Miharayasuhiro shirt I got last month. I love how you can play with its strings and create different looks. Believe me there are tons of different possibilities! The other day I was doing some really sweet French braids. I also love its luxurious fabric. It feels really nice. As for my Mom, she experimented with some unexpected earth-tone color-blocking and played with leather and pleats. She finished the look by wearing her androgynous Acne brogues and quirky BLESS x Longchamp tote. FYI, you can actually transform that Le Pliage to a donut bracelet. One of these days, I will show you the step-by-step procedure!
Since both my Mom and I hardly ever wear colors and prints we oftentimes play with texture to make our ensembles interesting.
