Navy blue and black were my school uniform colors for over 12 years! And everyone knows that uniforms are sexy... =D

God, this couldn't ring anymore true for me. Every time I wear black with brown I get all kinds of crazy harassment from people who really don't have a clue about fashion. The biggest insult I ever got was when my best friend said, "You look ugly today. Everyone knows you can't wear silver bracelets with gold ones." WHATTT?!

nice layering
Miller on January 18
I sooo agree:) I never let things like that or "rules" limit what I wear. As long as I like it, I will wear it. And I also have to say, I do not love every trend out there either! Good points!!:D Love your outfit:)

brittany on November 08
you look great, i never understood the navy and no black "rule." it's like saying you can't wear brown with black and i've seen PLENTY of people who look amazing with outfits that are brown and black.
magenta on November 07
i love the layering and those shoes, those shoes, those shoes ..
ferociacoutura on November 07

Nanny on November 06
Of course you can mix any colors you like! I heard that once about pink and orange and was like "obviously I can, you see me wearing it, don't you?". Btw, I got the same H&M sweater in black and looove it!
glamourstains on November 06
I love your sweater.
supernab on November 06
there are too many rules made up. i heard something like you cant mix black and navy, red and pink or brown and black and the list goes on. well i think if you think something works, it just works!

yeahhh i had some respiratory infection that was misdiagnosed as mono for some reason :/
amoedo on November 05
well today i bought a cardigang in a darker blue than your sweater and, it really looks like black. i dont have any problem mixing any other colours, but i think really dark blue and black cant go together. anyway, one day i will mix this colours and expect comments of unrespecting people like those who told you you cant wear that you look really faboulous
slight_ingenue on November 05
i love navy and black. its so vavavoom.
fayeangelica on November 05
and some cuts don't. Really simple rules that aren't false like that navy and black rule.
fayeangelica on November 05
Forgot to add, love your outfit btw! And yes to a Q&A!
fayeangelica on November 05
That guy is ridiculous! Navy and black are perfectly fine together. If he thinks thats a faux pas then oh the horror i've broken the fashion code a million times then! *Gasp* Although that rule may not exist I think there are just some rules that apply to each individual, like basic rules that one can choose to follow or not but would be better if they did. Like how certain cuts flatter a person
InstantVintage on November 05
rules are for suckas!
Starrgirl (@fashion_fille) on November 05

mnavoy on November 05
i really love the sweater, and i don't even post to communities like "what i wore today 2" anymore becuase the people there just seem ridiculously judgmental and say stupid things like what you said. i also like the giant scarf :)
