Liquid Black

lookbook store balck faux fur vest

Friday I posted more of a classic black and white holiday style idea. Today is the same basic color scheme, but a little on the edgy side. I am not sure this would be considered a holiday look, but definitely one that would be fun for date night or girls night out.

I got this black fur vest from Lookbook a few months ago. I have a similar one from last year, but like this one a little better because of the longer length and it's ability to cover my backside. If you have yet to purchase a faux fur vest, I highly recommend this one. With it's affordable price and quality, it is money well spent and a piece that can be dressed up or down over the next several months. 

I was going to pair the vest and Forever 21 top with black skinny jeans, but mustered up the courage to go with black faux leather leggings from Wallis. They are more or less liquid leggings instead of pants. I have been on the fence about actually wearing them because of how form fitting they are, but I will definitely be playing around with other ways to style them again soon. I suggest wearing a loose fitting top if you are interested in trying out a pair for yourself. They are a fun change of pace and a chic, modern alternative to skinny denim.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We got our Christmas tree and indoor decorations up. It's tradition in our house to get everything decorated the weekend before Thanksgiving. That way, once we get home from visiting family, we can sit back and enjoy. I may or may not have almost burned down an entire 3-wick Peppermint Twist Bath and Body candle over the last 48 hours. It's a serious addiction this time of year.
