the power of simple

i sat around for about an hour trying to figure out what to wear.  the perils of fashion blogging are those days when you just can't think of anything inspiring to wear for yourself and your readers.  let's face it: being fabulous is f*#king exhausting.  anyway, my solution to this gargantuan problem was to keep it simple.  i decided to sport a black/white/grey ensemble, keep the accessories minimal, and do a really pretty pink hued make up job.  guess what?  it worked.  never underestimate the power of simple.
