Black Lace and a Blue Stone


 I got this great ring from ASOS and I even saw it in the March issue of Marie Claire Magazine!

 I got this amazing necklace at an African Shop on 125th Street. I am obsessed with this store and all their beautiful accessories.


Cardigan: Thrifted from No Relation Vintage in NYC
Skirt: Necessary Objects
Platforms: Jessica Simpson Dany Platform see them worn differently HERE  and HERE  and HERE!!!!!
Ring: ASOS
Necklace: African Shop on 125th St

When I came across this amazing skirt at Necessary Objects for only $21 I had to have it. I have been wanting a maxi skirt like this for awhile. Glad I finally can cross it off my list! I love pairing skirts like this or ankle length skirts with socks and heels. I think this trend is preppy yet chic!
What do you all think of the socks with heels look? 
I saw it a lot on the runways during NYC Fashion Week. Let’s thanks Mother Nature for warming NYC up to a boiling 52 degrees today and curse her for the 30 degree weather tomorrow…sigh.

    I like the skirt, so many things you can do with it. Not a fan of socks and shoes for me personally, but a lot of people seem to pull it off well.

    The skirt is a great find indeed. I need a maxi skirt like that too, or with pleats instead of lace. I like the socks with heels trend and I adore wearing socks with pumps, reminds me of the 80’s trend. xxx
