I'll Wear Any Color As Long As It's Black

Yesterday a friend who had seen the blog asked me about these leggings . . .

He wanted to know if they were Sass & Bide Black Rats, which they are not, but it got me thinking about the Rats . . . I was thinking about this picture from Jak & Jil featuring them:

So last night while I was trying on various outfit combinations (just to come up with some new ideas) I was using the leggings I’m wearing today (by Silence & Noise) in the same fashion — pulling them down over ankle boots — and I really liked the effect. But then while I was lying in bed trying to sleep through yet another afterparty hosted by my brother, I was thinking about wearing the leggings with these new Vince Camuto shoes I got the other day. I thought it would look good to wear them with no socks but when I woke up and attempted that, I realized the shoes really aren’t nude, they’re more of a bone color, so it didn’t work. Luckily I accidentally brought these fishnet socks with me last time I was packing from NYC — I don’t think I’ve worn them since the early 2000s. Either way, I was really into this look, worn with a vintage silk dress, Derek Hart cardigan and random studded belt that I got at Beacon’s. When I went out for the day, the leggings garnered a lot of positive responses from people at the various shops I visited. Anyway, back to the Black Rats. I managed to find a pair on Australian Ebay last night for about $65 USD (including shipping) and I’m totally stoked (they retail for $180). I hope they fit/look good/etc. Either way, it will be noted here.
