I'm all for black's confused sibling, but can you really replace a classic? I will accept it as a stand in, but never will that step child replace my black! lol
Here are some pieces that could be alternates for me.
$108 can be found @ igigi.com
$29 can be bought at Ashley Stewart
Dickies that can be purchased at Torrid for $48
of course I couldn't forget the shoes...also can be purchased at Torrid for $32.
Make sure you choose the right accents/accessories (gold bangles, pewter neckclaces, or silver hoops) just to keep it simple.
