Coldish


Last week it got cold-ish for a couple of days, so I pulled my winter items out from storage. These leather pants haven't seen the light of day for quite some time, and frankly I'm starting to worry that this might be one of the only wears they get this winter. I thought they went beautifully with the blazer and boots.

I tried out some of the new shatter nail polish from OPI, and I quite like the effect. It was remarkably easy to do; you just apply it over any regular nail polish and within a few seconds it starts to crack. It doesn't even have to be applied evenly or very thick, because when the polish cracks it clumps together and becomes more opaque. Recently I read that gold nails are big for spring, and this is one trend I can certainly get on board with. It's not a huge investment, it looks good on everyone, and it's a great way to mix metals if most of your jewelry happens to be silver, as mine is. 

Blazer: Helmut Lang
Shirt: All Saints
Necklace: Manu Lizarralde
Pants: Firetrap
Boots: Brako

First - love those leather trousers! The whole outfit is so city-chic. Second - I must try that nail polish, b/c every woman's life needs a little more pure fun!

This is a really elegant outfit...Are the leather pants warm? I want to paint my toenails in gold this summer.

That blazer gets me every time. And not just because I know its fabulous story!

I love the blazer, the leather pants and the boots - the nail polish just caps it off!

I might have to include my leather pants in next month's capsule wardrobe...

The other thing I like about crackle polish is that it's a good way to extend a manicure when tip wear starts to appear :)
