This time, I decided to ditch a color theme and just grab black items because well, black goes with everything, and it makes me look slimmer. There were so many fabulous items but here’s what I picked up while shopping   Alexander Wang Rockie Duffle: This is hands down one of my favorite bags to carry during the winter season. I didn’t pick this bag up during…
