"And there's many shades of black."

Gap top. Whitney Eve skirt. Tulle jacket. BCBG wedges. Tarina Tarantino earrings. Marc Jacobs headband.

Another one of my monochromatic days.  I love wearing black; it's my favorite color (if we ignore the fact that it's really a shade...) and it goes with everything--including itself.  I've been working to branch out on my color palettes, but there are days like these where I'm in black almost head to toe.  I swear my closet is full of color, but I just have a strong attachment to black.  Besides, shades and neutrals are very "in" this season.  :o)

I just finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.  I had been planning on watching the movie and wanted to read the book first.  I really liked the book; it was a great read.  I was up until almost 7am because I wanted to finish the book.  I think the last time I was so engrossed in a book that I was willing to sacrifice my sleep was with Harry Potter (any of them).  That's not to say the books are similar because The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo with Harry Potter are on practically opposite ends of the spectrum.  However, as J.K. Rowling writes an amazing fantasy book,
Larsson is an enthralling thriller novelist.  I recommend The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to anyone looking for a good mystery/thriller.  The story is pretty intense and definitely not for the faint of heart.  I give it a 4/5.

I wanted to read that book but I never really had the will and time to do so. With black, you can't go wrong.

Thanks for stopping by my blog =]
I also love wearing black, and gray's been sneaking into my closet too. Oh shades. haha, but they work so well together.
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was an awesome movie, though the sequels weren't nearly as amazing. I haven't read the books though.

monochromatic is a little necessary in the month of january, we're all guilty of it. at least you know you can't go wrong with it!

I adore the Hello Kitty earings, so cute! Black is much easier to wear.

I've been looking for good books to read lately so I might check out The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
