Little Black Boxes

Dress: Final Touch
Cardigan: Halogen
Tights: Hue
Shoes: Urban Outfitters

This outfit has a tidy, complete look to me, and I think it’s because of the three black, somewhat rectangular shapes at the top, center and bottom: my hair (okay, my hair is dark brown, but close enough), the waistband and the black saddle shoe sections. Does that sound ridiculous? Probably.

My dress is a few years old. I found it at Xi Clothing in Pasadena, which is a cheap little store over by Nordstrom Rack and Old Navy. I was drawn to the pattern on it, which is a sort of...tribal herringbone? I thought it was interesting. I added the olive green cardigan because I love green and gray together. 


  1. This green color looks wonderful on your skin! And I agree, the pattern on your dress is neat.

  2. This is so gorgeous, I love the print on the skirt! It looks awesome with the cardigan and saddle shoes. I love clothes that just "draw" you to them!

  4. is this the dress you used to wear to work? I think I remember really liking it :) That green cardigan looks great with the gray.

  5. Ah your shoes are so cute!
    The dress still looks good =)

  6. Oh, I like this dress! I didn't even notice the pattern until you did the close up, I thought it was a ticked grey!

  7. aaah those shoes are the perfect finishing touch, SUCH a cute look once again! you never try to hard and I love that!

  8. I find your style so elegant and inspiring. You always look effortless, and your hair and makeup are perfection. (Plus, you're making me want a pair of saddle shoes!)

  9. Thanks for your comment!:) I used to LOVE xi, there was one by my house in high school. haven't thought about it in years. oh the nostalgia. love your green cardigan, what a lovely shade.

  10. I love that dress! It's unique and it flatters your body. Also, the color of that cardigan is great! Very perfect for spring.

  11. Very lovely and classic outfit. The saddle shoes are such a nice touch! xoxo

  12. You look so cute! I love your hair! I wish I can wear my hair short. This outfit is pretty! Love the colors! :)
