Black with brown isn't everyone's favorite look, but I file it under the same category as wearing black with navy or white with cream. It looks a little softer and more natural to me, especially with brights. I shouldn't have worn my bag on my shoulder for this picture; the slouch is reading kind of sloppy... but I don't *think* it looks that bad in real life.

DIY July continues with Day 2's handmade item: the flip-up cat watch. I found the face alone at a swap meet and picked it up for a buck or so. Then I cobbled together a leather strap from a broken belt and some rivets. Portable photo album!
