What I'm Wearing: Back in Black

Happy Weekend Dude Buddies! I apologize to all of you who were eagerly waiting at your computer for my next post, refreshing your page, only to be constantly disappointed (yes, I'm delusional). I spent a good 8 hours baking all sorts of Christmas goodies with my mom. This is one of my favorite traditions. It is fun quality time that has us laughing, singing and making fun of each others decorating (I still think that one frosting job looked a little phallic, mom).  Anyhow, we made up so many goody trays to give away to our friends and family, which is the best part of it all. See, I do have a heart. :)

This look is what I wore to work yesterday. I got this super awesome jacket at the Salvation Army for a few bucks. It's one of those finds that you squeal when you see. Black & white, python print and clear sequins? Don't mind if I do! I realize I am wearing a lot of black in this outfit and it was by design, so that the jacket would be heard more in the outfit. Shhh listen closely...Don't you hear the beginning guitar riff of AC/DC's "Back in Black"? It's okay to head-bang, go ahead, I'll wait...and we're back, in black that is.

Here are some close ups of the necklace, jacket detail and shoes.

How are you all liking this look? 

I am so tired from the baking marathon. I will catch up on my blog reading later this evening, as  I will be helping my sister-in-law move today. I promise to visit your blogs then. :) 

Have a great weekend!

  1. Is it sad that I actually was refreshing my Google Reader at 1:43 a.m. on a Friday night/Saturday morning? That is one fierce neck party you've got going on with all those necklaces. You've really mastered the art of jewelry stacking. I still have yet to purchase a watch, the "anchor" of arm parties.

  2. Kassi, you kept us in suspense girl! HAHAHA I love this outfit. The trim of "skin" is awesome! It's just enough. Love your accessories! Those chains are rockin'! And good for you, for spending time in the kitchen with your mom baking. I do the same thing! Those are precious moments and its important to spend time with family. It's the HOLIDAYS! You look good chica! :D Have a great weekend!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
