Feelin’ BAD (in a Good Way!) in Black

I really hope someone gets the meaning of this post title or I just really revealed my age with my nod to the king of pop {anyone, anyone??}. But anywho, it seems no matter when I decide to make a few additions to my wardrobe, I always gravitate towards similar things – namely anything in black! But I firmly believe there’s a difference between a fashion comfort zone and a rut, so like I’ve advised here, when you’ve found something that works, why not just go with it!

That’s why I was pretty thrilled to make some serious scores when I popped into Nordstrom Rack during my recent trip to back to my home hood, Seattle. I mean, I couldn’t be in Nordstrom mecca and not go! The Rack’s Designer Section is my kryptonite.

Thankfully, it didn’t take long before I stumbled upon this hot little motorcycle jacket by Soia & Kyo that I snatched right up! Thank goodness, as it came in mighty handy when rain arrived unexpectedly and put a damper {pun intended!} on what had been an epically lovely Pacific Northwest summer. Typical.

I also nipped a beautiful black Dries Van Noten tank. I’m a big fan of going high end for basics so you don’t have to replace them every two seconds. High quality fabrics and a great fit are well worth a little splurge. And a lovely black tank – this one has a little shimmer though sadly you can’t really see it in these pics – is the perfect piece to slip under a suit jacket or dress up a pair of jeans for a girls night on the town {at one of my fave Seattle restaurants, Radici, owned by Cassandra’s dad no less}!

You know, sometimes shopping can feel like a chore these days, but enjoying the thrill factor of a really good score makes the whole thing dramatically more fun. Especially now that you can shop Nordstrom Rack online. I just do not have the stomach for dressing rooms anymore!! I definitely cannot stop wearing my moto-jacket and feeling pretty BAD when I do!
