Black Out

Shop My Look:
Sweater: Express / Jeans: Citizens of Humanity (old) (similar save or similar splurge)
Watch: Michael Kors (old) (similar here) /Bracelet: Michael Kors (old) (similar here)
Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (splurge here or save here 
Pumps: Nine West (Flats version) (On Sale!)

This look is a modification from Day Seven of the Style Challenge, which was gray denim, striped tee, cardigan, and leopard flats.  I swapped out the stripes and cardigan for fuzzy black sweater.  I like pattern mixing, but there is something fun about an all black look with a pop of color in the leopard shoes. And, if you can tell, I love these leopard shoes!
(Here's a look back at Day One / Six / Nine)

Shopping Tip: I bought this Express sweater on sale. I never pay full price because Express always has some type of promotion going on, and they typically allow you to stack promotions. So, for this sweater, it was 40% off, plus another $15 off of $30, so I ended up paying $38 for a $88 sweater - far more reasonable price.  Since stores are continually putting items on sale - my recommendation is that if you aren’t sure - wait a few days, because you probably can get a better deal...

Nine West: 30% off Everything
Express: 30% off $100 or 40% off $200 (Code: 1100)
Nordstrom: Great sale items, like this midi skirt or camo a-line skirt (both $39)
