OOTD : Black (and) Gold

February 02, 2011

Today's outfit features one of my favorite brands: Necessary Objects. I was first exposed to Necessary Objects because it WAS a Nordstrom juniors brand (they have unfortunately since been downgraded to TJMaxx and Amazon status).

I generally avoid the juniors section like the plague these days because I inevitably end up with some cute and well fitted pieces that turn out to be unwearable because of some kiddish detail that I overlooked while in the fitting room.

Necessary Objects has many basic pieces that are of good quality, fair pricing, and without excess flair. This dress in XS, for example, fits TINY but has a lot of stretch so that even a medium built petite like me can wear it comfortably. I think this dress would be best suited for someone a size down from me but it's past the exchange period so I kept it.

Anyone else a Necessary Objects fan? I am aware that they occasionally have rather unattractive designs but I do like the basics.

Dress: Necessary Objects
Sash: J. Crew
Cardigan :  ASOS Premium Chain Detail Knitted Jacket

Today's item to be passed on is this Teeze Me dress in juniors size 3. I don't think I've ever worn this "out" but I do recall trying it on. Poor storage made this one super wrinkly, but again, nothing a good steam bath can't cure. The guidelines are the same: pay shipping and it's yours. Please leave a comment below so others can know it's claimed.

  9. i love the black and gold dress and the cardigan with the gold trim. I'm always tempted to shop the Juniors department too at times and have had to wean myself away from it. And I'll have to keep an eye out for Necessary Objects now!

  10. Elle, you look Chinese today. Your outfit that is :) I think it's the Gold trim and obi-like belt (Japanese, Chinese, that's close enough). It's a cool alternative to red for Chinese New Years. Before I forget, Happy Chinese New Years! (Is it today or tomorrow? I'm still mixing it up)

  11. Awe........black and gold are sooo pretty together!

  12. I love the ensemble - especially the chain trim cardigan!

    I had to smile when I saw your size 3 item - it has been soooo long since I wore junior sizing (shows you how old I am LOL)!

  13. @Downtown Diaries ME? Tiny waist? haha it's not nearly as small as YOURS! You are so slim!

    @kileen yay, I can't wait to hear what you think. I think it'll work out even better for you!

    @Cee hehe, I hadn't even noticed. Chinese New Years is today! (or I guess yesterday afternoon in Asia). Happy new year to you too!

    @Really Petite they are, aren't they!

    @SewPetiteGal yup, juniors 3 really isn't us anymore. the good ol' days. :)

  14. Meant to comment yesterday but this outfit ROCKS! I love gold in anything but this is a grand slam! <3 it!

    And I also think that Necessary Objects is at Macy's...
