Black on Black

I’m pretty sure Grace Coddington would approve of wearing it head-to-toe but, Anna Wintour most certainly would not (have you seen The September Issue?!?).


It doesn’t matter, though, because neither were in Vancouver last night. And neither were at the jam-packed first-anniversary party for JK Models at Leone.


It was so much fun to see such beautiful faces (I’m talking to you Liv, Kim, Adela, Nicole, OliviaNiki, Anya, Erin, Lisa, and Raul).


And it was so much fun to wear my new-to-me giant spiral gold earings, which are — you guessed it — straight out of the 1980s.


When you’re decked out in ridiculous accessories from such a ridiculous decade you can’t help but have a blast, even if you’re dressed in the most solemn colour in the rainbow.

P.S. Like the Anthology? Like Facebook? Might I suggest this?

    It was great seeing you last night Kelsey! Your black-on-black outfit with the 80s earrings was so fun–I loved all the contrasting textures and your beaded top.

    You looked great last night! It was so great meeting in person. Too bad I got there when everyone was leaving.

    PS. I too tend to agree with Grace over Anna.

    I think this may be one of the most amazing ensembles I have EVER laid eyes on – love love!

    And I am uber envious of you given the fact that you got to meet Nicole (of Le Mode Du Jour). I absolutely ADORE her and her blog!! :)

    it was fun darling!! and so glad i got to meet so many gorgeous and lovely fellow tweeps and bloggers from vancouver.

    those gold earrings are out of this world. I think you could wear a black sack with those and still look uber chic.

    Even Anna Wintour would love your all black look. I think all the different fabrics keep it from being boring.

    ps- added you to my blogroll :)

    It was so lovely to finally meet you in person Kelsey! And you looked fabulous, of course. I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone as stylish as you. I loved your all-black ensemble esp with the sequined details on your top and those amazing spiral earrings! I kept meaning to bring them up that night but somehow forgot amongst all that mingling. I hope you had fun and hope to see you again soon! xo
