Ebony, Forget Ivory

2012 February 16

I know I live in sunny Southern California where color is key (almost to a fault) and that Spring trend forecasts are wailing “white, white, white!” but there is still a big part of me inside that is living in my tiny little city apartment, in the heart of Montreal, watching people walk the streets in a romantic haze, spilling onto cafe sidewalks with cigarette and glass of red wine firmly in hand, going out for dinner at 10pm…

And that side of me only relates to one hue: black.

Head to toe and black again. At home. At work. At play. Black, black, black.

So here are some ebony finds I am loving and lusting after right now:

Clockwise from top left:

Bauble Bar Tuft Love Necklace, $38 – dress up any outfit in a flash.

BLAX hair elastics, $4 – I am a diehard fan.

Lamp from Anthropologie, $448 – perfect for almost any corner of my house.

T by Alexander Wang, $80 – always looking for the perfect tee.

Hunter Original Tall Wellington Boots, $125 – for the 3.2 days of the year when it actually rains here.

Yves Saint Laurent Muse Oversize Tote, $2295 – for when I land a new client and want to celebrate me. Would use it daily.

Sparkly Soul wide headband, $17 – a great find from one of my fave blogs.

Diptyque Baies, $90 – a beautiful scent that’s even more glam when it glows in black.

WESC Akina jacket, $198 – I love a high collar and WESC’s street chic outerwear does it right.
