Black is my favorite color for my career wardrobe. It serves as a blank canvas for a myriad of possible looks. This look shows how a simple black ensemble can go from drab to fab with a couple of accessories. I paired this Henri Bendel plaid bag from last season with red textured bow flats from Talbots. Then a quick long strand of pearls and the look is complete. I am a busy mom so getting ready in the morning for work has to be quick.
