Black and gunmetal.

January 18, 2013

Filed Under: Style

A weekday is the perfect night for a lady date. This particular evening, I went to a local wine bar with a good friend and thought it was the right occasion to don some gunmetal accessories. As much as I love silver, rose and yellow gold, gunmetal has been a recent favorite of mine.

Sometimes getting ready for evening in cold temperatures is a challenge. I typically tend to revert back to skinny jeans and pumps, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up! Shorts and tights are a great alternative. I also recently wore this combination in a day look. Post to follow. :)


I really wanted this necklace from Visceral Enrapture to stand out, so I selected an all black outfit as a backdrop. This piece was created by a friend of mine from college, Katie List. She and Morgan Stone hand craft all of their unique jewelry, ranging from $25-$150. I loved the edginess of this item – it’s so different than my other jewelry!

To match the metal of the necklace, I selected my new gunmetal watch from The Trendy Boutique. This watch comes in many different finishes and closely resembles the coveted Michael Kohrs watch but is much more affordable!

    I don’t think I can pull off this much black, but I really like that necklace. It seems that it’s all about statement necklaces right now in the fashion world

  13. Love this post! The gunmetal boyfriend watch you chose is perfect with this outfit. Thanks for featuring – lots of orders coming in!

    I’ve noticed you’ve been evolving into a much edgier lass. Perhaps it is your new tattoo rubbing off on you? JK!
    I love the watch. I love the Michael Kors watch but I am NOT paying that much for a watch. This seems like a good alternative!
