Inspired by Anna Karenina

I recently came across these photos I took wearing Tacori jewelry and realized I never shared them  with you guys. The concept came naturally, because I was just in the middle of reading my favorite book by Leo Tolstoy - the tragedy of an unhappily married aristocrat of Imperial Russia - Anna, her passionate affair with dashing Count Vronsky and their doomed love. Not only it still remains my number one recommended book to read, I am also obsessed with Joe Wright's adaption of the book in the movie "Anna Karenina" (2012).

Gold Details and Fur

My favorite combination of colors is black and white, but when you add just a little bit of gold details and some fur, the look becomes super chic. The gold details I chose are my new hand chain from Leuer with a matching necklace. I love the fact that the accessories are thin enough, which adds an extra touch of sophistication. 
And obviously fur - another material that is so elegant and classy. You won't believe it, but my faux fur cover-up is not actually a cover-up, it's a scarf! I purchased this scarf about 2 years ago when Anna Karenina collection from Banana Republic just came out. This is how I wore it: I wrapped the faux fur (middle) part around my shoulders and wrapped the remaining long ends of the scarf around my waist which resulted in a thick belt that I fixed with my gold bracelet. Completed the look with my thigh-high boots from Target and mohican clutch from Ted Baker.
