Black & White
Black and white is one of the classic combinations in fashion I mean you can’t go wrong with this color combo I mean the King of Pop himself even had a hit with a song titled Black or White. I know many myself included think of black & white as a basic combination but it is actually very chic and sophisticated and it doesn’t have to basic or boring. I actually learned this when I was reading the blog Supersize My Fashion titled BLK/WHT (click here to read) this past January and I was bowled over with how she took these classic colors up a notch and I was inspired to recreate her look but put my own spin on the look. I began my search for a dress similar to what Dionne was wearing and I began to despair that I would find something similar because the dress Dionne wore was sold out. Just when I was ready to give up hope I received a catalog from Venus which is a new company to me, but as I began to look through the catalog I discovered this black and white lace up dress. I could not believe my eyes and I was over the moon when I saw they offered it in plus size so I immediately went to their website and ordered the dress. When the dress I arrived it was every bit as beautiful as it looked on the website. Then my search began for a pair of shoes, I knew I didn’t want boots, and once again I started to get discouraged until I went on Amazon and found these black & white shoes (here)! They are actually a pair of shoes I didn’t order two pairs and wore one black shoe and one white shoe LOL. My overall style is modest so I paired this white blouse I got from Eloquii a few years ago underneath the dress because the neckline is a little too low for my aesthetic. I was so pleased with how this look came together and got so many compliments when I got to church.
Until next time Southernistas and remember Be Bold, Be Fearless, Be Confident!
