Black and White Will Make It Right!!

I know that this is a design blog, but from time to time I like to do a post or two on wardrobe and make-up.

After all, it all has to do with making something or someone look better, Right?
If you like basic, classic pieces in your wardrobe with a pinch of fun I think you will like this post.

Last night I was going through a little catalog that I got in the mail and I  loved almost every single piece in it. That never happens to me.
Everything was based on using black,white and beige as a neutral base for your wardrobe.

I am like everyone else and have been doing that for years, but there was something about this grouping that spoke to me.
All the pieces you are about to see come out of the White House Black Market New Arrival flyer.

You didn’t think I would leave room design totally out of this post did you?

I am a lot shorter than this model and wellll, a lot wider too. I would make sure that this skirt hit just right above my knee to be more age appropriate! I love the studding detail and I think this would make a wonderful addition to any wardrobe. The shoes are adorable!!

I love this over sized purse with the patent handles. I think I would carry this for years. I know leopard is huge now, but I have had touches of leopard in my wardrobe forever!!! That is why I can be sure I would carry it for a looooong time!

Another darling shirtwaist dress. I would not wear an ankle strap shoe with this, but if my legs were this long I sure would.

Fun and casual. Love the jacket and top with white pants. I would not wear the shoes because I think it is too Smatchy( that means it matches so much it smacks you in the face! Another one of my made-up words!)

For a real casual look I think this shearling coat with it’s feminine ruffle is darling!!

If I were going to add quite a few new pieces to my wardrobe, I think I would have to add all of the above.

I hope you have enjoyed this little diversion from Home Interiors to Wardrobe?

 (well almost, I had to add some rooms I couldn't help myself.) 
Looking at all of these clothes is making me think of my closet, which needs to be purged and reconfigured. Oh My!! See how my mind works? It is kind of scary isn’t it? Does your mind work that way too? Always thinking about the home front?
