Living in black and white is not as boring as you think. Or at least it doesn’t have to be!
Look at this little wardrobe collection here. It is entirely black and white yet there is nothing boring or dull about it! In my mind I see a million possibilities and everyone will work because of the palette. Imagine how easy it would be to get dressed in the morning. Find something to cover the top, bottom and put on your feet then add a few accessories…you could do it in the dark!
Which is exactly why when I began the rebuild I made sure I had a heavy infusion of this colour combination.
And in the fairness of disclosure, I should let you know that I’m also a fan of the Collingwood Football Club. Club colours? Why black and white of course! This photo was taken a few weeks ago at the Hall of Fame – Season Launch dinner. As a good team supporting woman, I was dressed in black and white. Plus, as you now know, I have tons of it in the wardrobe!
No, unfortunately, these aren’t mine but I do wish a couple of them were! I really love the piece on the far left and the bottom left. And, I have to admit, there is something very cute and whimsical about the dress on the right with the white dress detail on it. Even though it reminds me a little of those novelty aprons with the hot bikini body on them, I think there are lots of girls out there that could so rock that dress. I’d have to put it with boots…probably army style…just to balance out the cutesy factor.
Hope some of these photos have peaked your interest and that you come along for the ride.
Well, time to head on down the highway…after all…it’s black and white too!
Speaking of down the highway. The Fashion Mister and I were in Melbourne for the football over the weekend. We’re heading back for the big ANZAC Day game. We attended the President’s Luncheon before the game, and of course I wore black and white. White and black tuxedo jacket from Glassons about $50, Black and white zig-zag print shirt from River Island on sale about $15, Black pants Ralph Lauren purchased at the DFO in Essendon – on sale about $70 three years ago, Black wedges Novo about $80 and necklace from a jeweler in Egypt – priceless!
