Black Fashion Friday

The fashion industry is a complex one and full of flair, drama and down right interesting


 I follow a few designers on Instagram just to see what is going on in the world of

high fashion and how this fashion trickles down into what we all wear.

Some of the styles I like, some I don't but I found a few to share with you this week

that I find strikingly classic, feminine and flattering. 

The set on the top left is a collection by Viktor & Rolf Designers. 

They are said to be some of the industry's most famous and often unpredictable showmen.

Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren met while studying fashion in the Netherlands, their company 

has it's headquarters in Amsterdam.

I personally feel as though it has a Holiday flair and I think it is especially lovely accessorized with

Manolo Blahnik Chaos Patent Ankle Wrap sandal.

I think this set is gorgeous and would be perfect on all women of all ages on all figure types.

Leggings are so comfortable and they are beautiful with coats, long tops and sweaters.

Add a gorgeous pop of color with this vibrant Hermes scarf, you know they are made of pure

silk or blends of cashmere and come with a hefty price tag.

So, if you are like me-I spy it, love it and then find a good looking knock off and I am

just as happy as the next woman on the street.

This set also transitions easily into evening wear so you can shop til your drop and then have

a nice dinner out at your favorite cafe!

Ending this Friday Fashion collection with a pair of jeans and casual black sweater, maybe toss in

a really wonderful purse by luxury designer Yves Saint Laurent for added interest if you are in

the mood, as well as some amazing black boots.

I have been on the look out for boots these past few weeks and I found there is a really great

selection this year-for the real woman.

To me that means not all of them have high heels and are still loaded with gorgeous style and

comfort, which is surely a win, win,

And if nothing else Be Happy!

  1. The coat with leggings is gorgeous! I would love to figure out some outfits with leggings for the winter. And I would have to pair everything with flats! lol Beautiful black...classic! Hugs!

  2. I love all these looks…classic with lots of black and a pop of color…They all fit me to a tee. I don't wear high heels on anything but stay more in the 2 inch range and usually flat for everyday. I recently found the perfect everyday boot with about a 1 1/2 heal and love them…In fact, so much I bought both the brown and black….love my flats too…..

  3. Okay those pants look sexy with those shoes. Do you wear those high heels - you have to tell me.

    Just stopping by to say Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Oh Jemma. I'll bet you are very fashionable! Love your selections. Thanks so much for all your visits. Susan

  5. Love love love the coat!!! Have a great Halloween!

  6. I have so many black clothes already, but now I want some more! I no longer wear really high heels, think my highest are 2 3/4 inches.

  7. Like Jean, I have so many black clothes, but I always gravitate to them! I like the way they contrast with my blond hair and I always feel "dressed" when I have a little bit of black on! Great choices, so pretty! :)


Thank you so much for visiting me, I always enjoy hearing from you, your comments make my day!
