Art to Outfit || Black and WhiteJune 06, 2013
When I received an email from Moda Operandi and their huge sale I immediately logged on to see if certain things that I had been coveting from afar had a more attractive-to-me price. And yes, there were (are) many beautiful things on super sale, especially a lot of precious shoes. But God forbid you thought about the purchase for more than a few minutes because that coveted item would no longer be available. I am rarely an impulse shopper so at least a few minutes of analysys are always in order, but in this case, the few pairs of sandals that I may have purchased immediately sold out (phew! it was kind of a relief!) But alas, I did fall in love with this very practical and chic black and white dress. And it's still available if you can believe it! Its muted coloring made me think of a few paintings I had seen by Kerri Rosenthal. Wao! Her paintings are fabulous. Her abstract pieces are especially appealing to me. So I made this ideal pairing-
Add some cute everyday sandals, perfect matching earrings and a pop of color and whimsy in this fun tote and you have a very practical and chic outfit. I think this kind of dress could easily become my uniform as it is kind of a no-brainer but instantly put together outfit.
Cause you know, I have to remind myself its not all about color. Black and white can sometimes feel as even more expressive because other attributes end-up taking center stage- like movement in this case. I want to live in this black and white cocoon today! Complete with its moodiness and intrigue. What is your mood like today?
