Day 2/30: Classics

To me, nothing screams classic more than wearing black and pearls. It's a tried and true timeless combo -- one that I like to wear on my "fat" days every month for that slimming effect, lol. Taking cues from Khatu's PFC #7, I paired a black top with a black skirt for a faux-LBD look. I would've kept the overall look simple with one strand of pearls, but that isn't a piece of jewelry I own... so on goes the multi-strand pile. What items do you turn to for a classic look?
necklace: J.Crew (similar)
cardigan: Old Navy (similar)
top: H&M - gift from Elle
belt: J.Crew (similar)

  1. Strangely enough, I don't have a pearl necklace. Maybe should look out for one but I gravitate more to edgy jewelry. Classics would prob be black dress, tailored pants, pencil skirt....the more I think, I'm realizing I don't really have a "classic" pieces. Uh oh.

  9. Black, pearls and cardigans, a few of my favorite things. :) I was fooled by the skirt & shirt combo, actually thought it was a LBD! Love the classic look, especially the strings of pearls.

  10. I also had to do a double take when I read that you had made a faux LBD. Nicely done!

  17. @Jarucha - I would say only get it if it suits your lifestyle/wardrobe. I have some pieces lying around that I rarely use. I bought them b/c they're beautiful, but I don't know how to make it work =/

    @Lisa - Now if the occasion ever arise, I'll have the perfect outfit handy ;)

    @Thu-Hang Tran - Hi Thu-Hang! Thank you so much for your kind words. Please feel free to critique. I swear I don't bite :)

    @KohLepe, @purses and puppies, @JenlovesBal, @ShortBlonde, @questforfashionsense - Thank you all :)

    @hurricanekerrie - Yes, whimsical and colorful suits you quite well!

    @Petite in the City - You can join any time! There's no set start date, end date, rules. Feel free to make up your own as you go!

    @b_ra - Ahh, it's too hard to top the previous day's, so bear with me as I'm sure there will be some rough patches!

    @Lilly's Style - Really?! I would have pegged you as the owner to many pearl necklaces given your style.

    @kimchi girl - Yay to things working out for the better, though not intended, haha.

    @simplyvonne - Hahaha, one day, on Thurs perhaps? ;) there should be a surprise :D

    @Elle - Of course you will! You wear heels like nobody's business :)

    @Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews) - Wanna swap? :) And when we get tired of it, we can swap back lol.

  19. You always look super classy, so I don't think this is really a stretch for you ;)

    I love the fake-LBD look, a lot. I have a gray A-line dress tha I love. That usually ends up being the dress that gets the pearl treatment...

  20. It does look like a LBD! What a great way to stretch existing pieces!

    Hmm...classics? Can't go wrong with a tailored button down, slacks, pumps, and pearls :)
