Noir & Blanc

by Karla on January 10, 2012

Très chic le noir et blanc!  

(Translation: “Black & white is so chic!” – I like to pretend I’m French…)

More often than not, I end up wearing an all-black outfit and simply throw on a pearl necklace or two. It doesn’t get any classier than that! I mean, HELLO! Can you say CHANEL? OK, so this outfit doesn’t come close to anything Karl Lagerfeld has designed, but it’s still kind of cool…

I was so into the whole black & white look that I ended up wearing this outfit the next day and posted it on Instagram.

Don’t you just love Instagram? I’m addicted! By the way… Are you following me yet?

I love black & white together. All of my favorites come in black & white: polka dots (obsessed!), stripes, houndstooth, checkered, snow leopard, zebra, etc., etc, the list goes on and on! However, I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of (gasp) black & white movies. Honestly, I haven’t given them a fair chance. Dreamboat has been trying to get me to watch The Artist but I haven’t been willing to sit through it. Has anyone watched it? I’m afraid I’ll hate it. And fall sleep. But I promise to give it a try. (Boo.)

I love your blouse! I want it. I’ll send you my address and you can ship it to me, mkay? I also love what you did with the 1st picture. Did you take it with a setting on your camera or alter it in photoshop?

First– I love, love, love that stripey top. It’s so classic and adorable! Second, I love that you like to pretend to be French. I totally almost named my EBEW post the exact name as yours. J’aime parler français souvent aussi. En fait, j’ai creé des articles qui s’appelent “Francophone Fridays!” pour mon blog :)

P.S. That pop of pink is perfect, by the way!

I love black and white!!! It’s so easy to match! You did good with your clutch because it’s not too matchy matchy with your outfit…

You look fabulous in B&W!…funny, too. I’m afraid my closet is 50% or more black….which I think is timeless. Visiting from EBEW.

I am seriously in love with this blouse. I usually stay far far away from pieces like this but it is so perfect with this whole outfit and I am sure you can mix and match it in a dozen different ways. – Katy
