Blame it on the change in weather for this new series.. but everyday when I pick out my clothes I seem to gravitate towards black, white and shades of grey:D Not that I am complaining.. after piling on all the color, a monochrome palette may be just what I need, kind of like a cleanse after a major binge. 😛 Anyway just a heads up that you’ll be seeing a lot of B/W broken by hints of colored accessories! 😀 I open with this polka all black number paired with a slinky grey vest!taadaaa! 😀
PETA to the left! I simply meant to say wear some python print!:) While reptile prints in accessories are a classic, I promise they look as good on a top or a pair of pants! Not sure why I kept the rest of the outfit black, must have been the New Yorker in me ;P Also neon lovers may rejoice as these prints look great when worn with brights as well! Bored with the usual leopard print? Python might be just what you need 🙂
I have plenty of respect for all those ladies and gentlemen who look so impeccably well dressed at all times! Quite frankly that is just too much for me to do on a daily basis 😛 but thanks to a presentation at work, I now know I can pull myself together if need be 🙂 But then again I kept my outfit simple and dressed it up with some jewelry and lo .. compliments all around 😉
If that bobble hat doesn’t make you feel better about your wardrobe choices, probably the awkwardly all-over shawl and overly crumpled jacket might 😉 Oh and also I wore a skirt in winter after taking a cue from my own post 😛 Happy week 🙂
Blame it on my negligence to do the sky high laundry pile but the other day I had to go out and realized I didn’t have much of a choice as far as clothes went. I ended up pairing a washed denim shirt with a pair of black washed denim pants… and what do you know…I had unknowingly worn the double denim trend. 🙂 While DD was once considered a faux pas, and is still a matter of “should I or shouldn’t I?”, I’d say everyone should try it just for the fun of it.. Just remember to choose two different shades of denim and to hold your chin high 😀 Compliments assured!
The last remnants of fall are gone – the sunscreen and sunglasses are out in full force, the hemlines are shorter, everyone is getting a fun pedicure in preparation for their open toed sandals and there have been about a million blogposts(mine included) on pastels and brights being “it” ….(and you probably think I am cuckoo posting about black) but will this mean we’ll have to bid a momentary farewell to black? Will it mean I can’t wear that “slimming” black dress or hide behind that flattering black blouse..? hmm.. maybe we’ll all probably be tempted to try to sneak in some black here and there 🙂 Lets take one last look at some “dark” images before spring colors take over mankind!(I kind of like how I made it sound like an alien invasion ;)) Don’t we miss it already? After all the “intensity” I just couldn’t resist throwing that last one in there! 😀 Have a great night/day:)
