Criss Cross Will Make You...Wear Pearls

I found this criss cross back jumper on ASOS a couple weeks ago, and I just had to have it. I probably own a billion black tops, but the criss cross back definitely makes this one a little unique (at least that's how I justified the purchase of another black top).  As a busty girl, I'm not walking out bra-less anywhere, so it's difficult for me to wear anything with a dip in the back. The V in the back is perfect because it allows me to show off a little bit of skin without showing the back of my bra (TACKY!). I paired my new favorite jumper with an old skirt I purchased at Express like two years ago. It's nice to be able to pull things out of the back of your closet and still feel great in them.

It's been a long time since I've opted to wear pearls. In spite of a life time of private school education, I don't consider myself preppy. It's not often that you'll catch me in a cable knit sweater with a strand of pearls around my neck, but every once in a while I like to go classic. I love this necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane because these are pearls that make a statement. The multiple strands are a perfect addition to a simple outfit.

Once again, I broke out my Charlotte Olympia lips clutch because I am absolutely obsessed with it. I purchased it on the sale, and so far it's the best purchase of this month. The sale ends tomorrow so hurry and snag some goodies while you still can! Some of the items I was eyeing have already been further reduced, so I may be handing over yet another fistful of money to them this evening.

Nothing gets me going like a pair of fun tights for these cool, winter months. I would kick myself if I didn't share with you my new favorite brand. The tights I'm wearing are called cougar legs and they're made by Commando. They are perfection. I love a fun print, but not nearly as much as I love tights not digging into my middle. Commando's line of luxury leg wear has a raw edge that prevents digging. It is the single best thing ever to hit the leg wear market. Just saying. Grab a pair because they're life changing.
