Fall 2006 Must-Have

In keeping with the whole Black is Back theme, one of the things I've been looking for to update my wardrobe for fall 2006 is what I'd consider a fall 2006 must-have - a great pair of slim-cut black pants.

Zac Posen

Giambattista Valli

I haven't found any yet.....any suggestions?

Coincidently, if the cigarette pant is not your thing, I highly recommend the more-easily done peep-toe pump - go with patent leather or a platform style for something a bit more flashy or leather for something on the conservative side.

Who would have thought the cigarette pants would come back fashion is so surprising sometimes!

Pink Cupcakes, I know! I was just remembering how I promised myself in high school that i'd never wear tapered jeans again....and yet i have a pair of skinny jeans and wouldn't mind having a couple more! lol

You know, Blogger can power your blog, even if it's a diff domain. like could still be Blogger. Thought I'd let you know!!

I am in love with the peep-toe pump! It's definitely a wardrobe staple for me

Shopaholic D said...

MoneyGuru...I'll have to look into that! Thanks!

Kim, I think I have a peep-toe addiction....every shoe i want right now (besides boots, of course) is a peep-toe! lol

Gap for more dressier ones, Delias/Forever 21 have solid black skinny pants (no contrasting stitching) that tuck well into boots.
