black milk had a big release last night- the nylon wars ep. 1 (ep. 2 to come in a couple weeks) and it was cool cuz that’s mostly what black milk is, but i wasn’t in love with anything (i fear i might have missed “my” launch. there is a lot of cool stuff that they did in the past but no longer stock that you can see here) except for a pair of shoes that they styled with some of the items. if you peruse the site enough, you’ll see that i’m not the only one who has noticed the awesome shoes their stylists choose. there’s actually a section that shouts out solestruck.com as their shoe provider, with the brand of choice being jeffrey campbell (of course). black milk actually has a pop up shop, complete with the black milk x jeffrey campbell collabo, that just launched last week at the solestruck store in portland, or. i was muy sad that i couldn’t make it. i’d love to try on a pair of leggings to figure out what size i am.
anyways, back to these wonderful shoes. in typical jeffrey campbell fashion, there is a platform and there is a covered wedge. the back off, though, calls out its platform by using a silver material to highlight it. love it! i don’t love the photography from the solestruck detail page so i’m using a pic from black milk that features these awesome shoes (and one of the leggings that i actually do like from this launch). it comes in some bolder color ways, but they’re all too loud for me. i like the simplicity of the black and silvers because the silver detail that i love so much doesn’t get drowned out by a big bold color.

thanks to some brilliant marketing (and seeing them on a friend…who lives in another city hours away so i can totally bite her style), i am completely enamored with the michi illusion pant. the brilliant marketing being the “angular mesh inserts that create a slimming effect” on the legs. michi is actually supposed to be workout gear, but when it’s this pretty, i doubt i would wear it to work out; not even to pole. that being said, do you think that the black milk sheer spartans (2nd picture) have enough of (at all?) the same “slimming effect”? (the pic of the leggings with the gold inserts is just to provide a better front view.) even with shipping all the way from australia, the black milks are about half the cost of the michis. i probably would wear them the same amount to pole, which is to say pretty much not at all…but you know…on that off chance…

i got a fishtail skirt from zara the other day. i love it and have already received spontaneous compliments from strangers! so now, of course, i must have more! i’ve been perusing jeffrey campbell and black milk pretty heavily lately (more on black milk later) and it’s put me in a rock kind of mood. with that in mind, i headed over to nastygal.com to take a look at what’s new because, you know, similar aesthetic but not always gonna break the bank. and whatdyaknow but i found some lovely tops with fishtail hems (that would look lovely with some black milk leggings)! all i can really do is *squee* over them. enjoy.
while this is not another fishtail top, it is a top and it is from nasty gal and i do think it needs to be mine. bam!
