Hello! I decided to participate in the Sophistique Noir Monthly Theme for November. I have found a few cute sweaters lately that have subtle alternative touches. This works well for me as I can wear them to work or use them for more interesting outfits. One of my favourite sweaters to wear lately is a cropped knit sweater with a bunch of spikes on the shoulder. It caught my eye because the spikes are gold; I usually go for silver metallics so the gold was a fun change.

I don't wear pants very often (and I REALLY do not care for the coloured/patterned pants trend) but I found a nice pair of black skinny trousers with a subtle brocade-like print on them to wear with this sweater for when I need to look more toned-down. If I want to wear the sweater out, I wear it with a pencil skirt with faux leather details or a black skirt with a long chiffon overlay.

When I have to dress "properly", I like to wear these little black and gold flake earrings. I also have some ankle boots with black and gold chains. When I use the sweater for going out purposes, I have some chunky black and gold chain necklaces and earrings that I wear with it.
THE OUTFIT (Toned-Down Work-Appropriate Version)
EARRINGS: Suzy Sheir
PANTS: Buffalo David Bitton
SHOE BOOTS: I cannot remember for the life of me.
Another sweater that I have been enjoying lately is a cross-print cardigan. I wear it over some of my solid-coloured work dresses and I also wear it with more goth-oriented things. I love when I can find pieces of clothing that I can use for both my work and alternative wardrobes!
I LOVE CROSS PRINT. That is all.
