STYLE STORY: Black + Garnet

This past weekend I enjoyed celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, in particular, attending Roc Da Runway, a hair and fashion show produced annually by a friend of mine.  As an added bonus, my Atlanta "inner circle", i.e Cynthia Bailey and "The Bailey Boys" came down, as Cynthia was the celebrity host.
I actually went through two looks before deciding on this black and garnet collaboration, but I'm pleased with the final look.  I've actually had this garnet dress with black faux leather sleeves for several weeks but couldn't decide how to wear it (it's actually an Elle VJ Boutique dress that I stocked and ordered just before the years end).  I knew I wanted a sleek and city chic look so I decided to pair it with a black cape with a high collar that I've had for years, and years (about 3+).  Finally, because the dress and cape were solids, I of course wanted to add a dash of sexy by spicing up the shoe!  Something sexy, something fabulous, something fierce . .. . . drumroll . . . . enter these pony haired ankle pumps that are to die for!
