Back to Black

Friday is FBFF (Fashion Beauty Friend Friday) time and this weeks' theme "Dressing To The Tune" is hosted by the lovely J. of adimpleate. We are supposed to dress ourselves according to a song that swirls around in our head.


{my outfit inspiration came from Sunday Crossbow}

My outfit is dedicated to Amy Winehouse and her amazing song "Back to Black". The song is great and when listening to it recently, I felt it so depicted the happenings that Amy herself just went through. Her death is such a loss for the world and we will miss an amazing artist. In memory of her and her work and because it's the beginning of Fall, I am going back to black. For that purpose, I wore my "new to me" vintage cape and an otherwise quite simple outfit: black long-sleeved shirt and burgundy skirt with black/gold jewelry.


This is for you, Amy!!

"... We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
you go back to her
And I go back to

Black ..."

I was planning on participating but I couldn't think of a song, maybe I'll come up with something by the end of the day? (wishful thinking :P) I'm loving your black cape, so prettty! I want one for winter :D

Kimberlee VDW said...

Wow that cape is gorgeous and great song choice! I'm loving all the different picks :)

Sunday Crossbow said...

I love your cape! Would you believe that I can't find mine?! I've searched high and low. :(

Gayle said...

What an amazing outfit! Your cape is fabulous and I'm jealous that it's cool enough where you live for you to wear one. Your shoes are lovely too. :)

Lauren said...

I really like your outfit! It looks great! I love the way you captured the song in it.

thx a lot Emily!

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

Oh you flatter me Savannah! Knew you would like the cape!! Was so "glad" it got finally cold enough to wear it :)

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

Yeah, sometimes it is hard to come up with something for an FBFF. I normally never think of songs when dressing, so this was definitely a hard one.

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

Definitely was a great FBFF!

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

Oh no!! Your cape is so pretty and made me look for mine for months in the thrift shops! hope you will find it on time for fall weather!!

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

Thx so much. It just happened somehow :)

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

They both are bought at an online platform, similar to Etsy or Ebay where people can sell their clothes. Most are second hand, but some are real vintage pieces. Like those two. The store is called KleiderKreisel!
