The Balenciaga Knife pump and Tom Ford velvet handbag demonstrate precisely why I never tire of black. How can I get excited about another black shoe or bag? It’s all in the details and the subtlest tweak to predictable classics. The elongated toe and elegant bow on the deep vamp make the slingback version of Balenciaga’s popular pump supremely chic. And Tom Ford’s partially leather covered chain and clean turn lock closure on the Natalia result in a modern bag that’s equally stylish with jeans or a LBD.
Have you tried Chanel’s Le Top Coat? It’s a black tint polish intended to be applied over any existing color adding depth and creating a darker hue. I’m intrigued and would like to see it in action. And it’s easy to see why Le Metier de Beauté’s eyeliner has a cult following. From the most precision line to a barely there flick for a subtle cat eye, it’s the easiest to apply of the liquid liner’s I’ve used and it stays put until I take it off. This is one of my repeat beauty buys I don’t even consider replacing with another brand.
