I’m back again with a quick edition of Style Sunday! You ever look in your closet and think to yourself, “I have nothing to wear!!” That was me this morning. Mind you, its not like I didn’t have options ( that would be incredibly false and ungrateful of me to say) but there was nothing I FELT like wearing today… until I peeked way deep in the back of my little closet ( I really need to spring clean it… sigh) and voila! This beautiful piece jumped out at me.
I purchased this piece months upon months ago when Forever 21 had a sale on all their clearance items( I love a good clearance rack 🙂 ) The piece I speak of is a beautiful silver sequin cape jacket.
This item isn’t available anymore, nor can I find anything online that compares, so I’ll just show you how I styled it today : )
I paired a long sleeved black body suit with a knee length black pencil skirt. This acted as a neutral base for the sequinned cape. The cape has a hook eye fastener in the front that when fastened , takes on the appearance of a really tailored tuxedo jacket. The sleeves on the cape are three-quarter length, which allows for easy mobility. I finished this outfit off with a pair of patent leather ankle -strap pointed toe stilettos ( sidetone: I have had these shoes since 2003 and they are still going strong! LOL! I don’t get rid of anything clearly … smh), I didn’t wear any jewelry other than the two rings I wear daily becuase the cape was enough of a statement piece on its own.
My makeup was minimal today because I woke up super late! Foundation ( Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in shade 180) Eyeliner ( Maybelline Unstoppable in “Onyx”) Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder , Liquid Lipstick ( Kat Von D “Sanctuary”) and Highlight (Kylighter in “Banana Split”)
That’s it for today folks! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and remember…
