Jersey City is a hub of construction — new buildings or brownstone rehabs seem to be on every other block. I thought the rough hewn look of this almost finished condo was the perfect backdrop for this post. While I love all the individual pieces in this outfit, I wasn’t sure about the total effect. But on second look, I’m pretty happy with the combo. It’s a mostly black palette with the pop of red plaid and leopard. And red lipstick! Which I probably dare to wear once a year.
