About three months ago, I found myself sweating profusely as I dodged traffic trying to traverse Dupont Circle. Sick of the heat, sick of the same color-blocked outfits with shiny nude pumps that marked spring and summer, it was time. For fall. Specifically, BLACK LEATHER. I soon scored leather skirt #1 (high-waisted, tassles!) on eBay; the second (buttery, A-line, TEN DOLLARS) I bought this weekend. The cashmere hear sweater is from Saks and will be added to my stockpile of stripes.
My fall strategy: eyeliner, black, leather, and an emphasis on Parisian je ne sais quoi a la Julia Restoin-Roitfeld.
