WIW: Black, cobalt & new handbag

Today's outfit is centred around my new Danier Leather handbag I bought last night. I love the round dome top shape, the subtle gold hardware, the lovely soft leather and the not-too-big-not-too-small size. It's perfect for me!

I chose my black knit pencil skirt and a black tank as a two-piece dress and then added my cobalt with faux black leather trim cropped moto to go on top. Scrunched my sleeves, added my large polka dot tights and went with my Doc Marcie boots for footwear. Jewelry is my silver wedding band and black & silver oversized watch.

Does this all work together? Proportions ok? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Jacket: Vince Camuto
Tank and skirt: Cleo Petite
Tights: Hue
Boots: Doc Martens
Handbag: Danier Leather
Watch: Calvin Klein (thrifted)

    Beauty bag! It looks just as good on you as I imagined. I love that cobalt jacket every time you wear it, and the polkadot hose are so much fun.

    OMG Shannon is the bag on net? I so want to see the compartments in it

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    You got the bag! The cobalt is wonderful with the black - great jacket. And, of course, I love the bag!

    You look perfect in pieces withs are all perfect for you.

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    The bag! The bag! It does look very you.
    I was also eyeing in in Dove color but it looks like it does not have any compartments inside, just the pockets - is it right?
    Cobalt and black together are simply perfect!

    Love the new bag. The structured bag goes along with your evolving style journey marvelously. I also like that you were decisive and went for it. Cobalt and black on you are awesome as always.

    Ha! I was thinking exactly the same as Sveta about that bag!! 

    It looks great on you, Shannon! And is perfect for you. I was wondering when that VC cobalt jacket would come out to play. Glad to see it!

    Big cheer from me!  I love the two piece dress as a "base" for your outfit.  The moto is stunning is color, and is such a brilliant combo of ladylike and moto.  The boots juxtaposed with patterned hose add a dose of strength and fun!

    The bag?  Even prettier styled than in the website photo I saw last night.

    They should give you a raise today at work.  Looking that good, they simply have to pay you more!

    Your new bag looks great, Shannon!
    And oh, my! You look SO GOOD in cobalt and black! That jacket is a stunner on you.

    You have a cobalt jacket????!!!  How is it that everything I love seems to be in your wardrobe?  I think I could steal your entire wardrobe!  LOL!  You look stunning!  The bag is a great addition to your style and the polka dotted hose adds just the right amount of pattern!  Brilliant!

    So glad you all like my new pretty bag :)

    Ramya - it is on the net http://www.danier.com/leather-.....colour=950|666666&mc=yes but unfortunately it doesn't show interior pictures. The bag does not have compartments but has one interior zipper pocket and on the other side, two open pockets for cell phone, etc.

    Sveta - your correct in no compartments, just pockets.

    Parsley - don't you just love bright cobalt? Such a happy color.

    Beth Ann - Ha! I'll ask for that raise and let you know how it turns out - lol!

    I'm coming to realize that even handbags have to be "tried on" to make sure they fit with your style, your body size and proportion, and basically feel right. And this one did that in spades!

    Thanks all :)

    All I have to say is that I'm thinking of going on strike until Danier Leather decides to expand Southward...

    A quintessential killer Shannon look. You wear booties with skirts with the best of them. Loving the hose.
