districtofchic 's Thoughts:

I’ve found myself attracted to sheer, mesh-like things layered over long pieces lately, but hadn’t found the best strategy for creating the combination within my own wardrobe until this weekend. This black and white empire waist maxi dress presented the perfect base for a tied mesh top that has been in my staple rotation forever. I love this dress, but I find it can be a little boring without some sort of statement jewelry. I rather like the idea of changing it up with a clean white top instead.

These earrings were a gift from Moxsie with my Chictopia rewards shoes.

One of my favorite girls in the world, C, is back in town for the summer and I’m sooo excited! She just got back from traveling around the Middle East and brought me kohl. She said that the kohl really helped protect her eyes in the desert. I tried it on Saturday (wearing it in the pictures) and I have to admit, it coats exceptionally well (no scrawling back and forth to create a visible line) and it didn’t irritate my sensitive eyes, as many eye products usually do. Now the question is: how am I going to get my hands on more??

I love the simple elegance of this look! And be careful when you are buying kohl, a lot of products contain heavy metals. I think Guerlain makes a good one?
