All Black & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

October 6, 2016

Hello, all!  I thought for today, I would do an outfit post from New York Fashion Week.  Actually, two outfits, but both are monochromatic black and I thought they would go well in a post together, all the pieces could be mixed and matched.

all black outfit, style over 40

At New York Fashion Week



In this look, I’m wearing a cold shoulder top from Nordstrom and some Maison Margeila pants that I bought on consignment.


And in this look, I’m wearing my Hudson raw edge cropped flare jeans from Nordstrom with a sheer top with bell sleeves that I bought on consignment.  I think either blouse would work with either pant.


With the holidays right around the corner, it’s nice having some basic black pieces to mix and match for parties.  All black always looks chic and classy.  And you can have fun adding accessories to give the look a more special vibe.


Of course this was NYFW, not a party, so I had to think practical as well. These Steve Madden cage sandals are surprisingly comfortable.  And my Marc Jacobs bag saved the day by being both classy and practical.  It’s big enough to hold EVERYTHING, even my good camera. (This bag ended up being a really great investment piece.)


Shop Consignment: Vestiaire Collective & The Real Real


ETA: My Hudson’s are sold out at Nordstrom, but I found them at Neiman Marcus: here!



My fav look from last week is Kathrine of Kathrine Eldridge in this mod inspired striped dress!


Enjoy sharing your looks in the link up, Readers! Remember if you’re not a blogger, you can always share Instagram posts!  We’d all love to see what you’re wearing this week!

    I have to admit, I try to steer away from all black—-but I just saw this lady at the airport in a great black outfit that made me think I should do a series on it!!
    You really look amazing Dawn! I love how you took pictures in front of the graffiti!!

    Sorry I’m a little late to the Fun Fashion Friday party today, dearest Dawn…we had a bit of a windstorm last night and lost our Internet connection this morning!! But things are up and running again tonight, and I’m so happy to see that you’re still sharing some pics from your NYFW adventure!! You truly look like a native in these awesome all-black ensembles…and those strappy sandals and your Marc Jacobs tote are proof once again that fab accessories are EVERYTHING!! P.S. I don’t think I’ve thanked you yet for joining my Fearless Fashion File group Pinterest board!! Of course I noticed right away that you’ve pinned a couple more of your outfit photos…woohoo!! XOXO
