paper dolls {what i wore}

striped winter coat

waxed jeans

When I was young I was very very fond of playing with paper dolls.  Such a strange concept really, but I would switch outfits until the little tabs wore off and the clothes no longer stayed in place.  Did they every really stay in place?  

I think this classic basic outfit, a great ribbed black tank and black denim {in this case wax jeans that are reversible and you wash in the freezer, for real}, is a great blank canvas to then mix and match the other items, playing with patterns, and textures and colors.  

I also have seen versions of this all over New York Fashion Week this week, sub an amazing baby blue fur coat, or black and white pin striped heels, and of course a well out of my price range handbag.  It's so chic and so easy.
