Wearing Lately – Blacks

Sale PSA: Shopbop’s annual F&F sale has begun, for up to 30% off with code MAINEVENT16. There are some restrictions, but much less than with other sales. My picks include the always popular Acne Canada scarf, now in super soft cashmere, parkas from Mr. and Mrs. Italy (so hard to find on sale otherwise), Sorel boots, and this adorable Paul & Joe peeking kitty tote. 

A great cream Rag & Bone sleeveless top with black edging, now under $90, a lovely and warm toggle cape jacket from J.Crew, now 30% with free shipping for today only with code YESPLEASE, an adorable business card holder from Kate Spade, now under $23 (I have a thing for business card holders), and black lace up sandals from Sam Edelman, now under $100 (these have great reviews, which you can read here).
