Looks From Books: Remake

This month for book club we read "Remake" by Ilima Todd.

A World Where Freedom Isn't a Choice.

Nine is the ninth female born in her batch of ten females and ten males. By design, her life in Freedom Province is without complications or consequences. However, such freedom comes with a price. the Prime Maker is determined to keep that price a secret from the new batches of citizens that are born, nurtured, and raised androgynously.
But Nine isn't like every other batcher. She harbors indecision and worries about her upcoming Remake Day - her seventeenth birthday, the age when batchers fly to the Remake facility and have the freedom to choose who and what they'll be.
When Nine discovers the truth about life outside of Freedom Province, including the secret plan of the Prime Maker, she is pulled between two worlds and two lives. Her decisions will test her courage, her heart, and her beliefs. Who can she trust? Who does she love? And most importantly, who will she decide to be?

The black and white contrast in this look reminds me of the indecision that Nine faces in the book and the contrast between two choices that can often be so difficult.

 I paired my favorite skinny jeans by J Brand with this gorgeous necklace and this fun White Hot Tee c/o Cents of Style and a white snake print blazer for texture and layering. Then I added nude heels and a white handbag for some glam. These Gucci sunnies were such a find - I got them marked way down at Sam's Club Optical for less than $100 and they are definitely my go to sunglasses.
