OOTD: “Seeing Stripes”

Stripes Collage

As you have probably noticed but I’m all-over this season’s black and white trend. I just can’t get enough of it. I have even worn a few black and white pieces as you can see herehere and here. But I always find myself adding some sort of color to my black and white outfits to break up the monochromatic feel. I decided to take a chance and just do an all black and white ensemble from head to toe. I’m featuring the striped pants trend or as some like to call it the ‘Beetlejuice’ print. I don’t know why but this was such a challenge for me. Now I have seen recent pics of Solange and Ashanti wearing head to toe black and white and they pulled it off great in my book. But even I get intimidated by some fashion trends at times. So today I’m wearing ALL black and white with not a drop of added color to the outfit. I’m personally happy with the outcome and my next fashion challenge to myself is to mix prints and different patterns in an outfit. Wish me luck!



So as I was out shopping yesterday I had a hunch to go to Target for some reason. I’m sooooo glad that I did too. I came across these Mossimo ‘Vinta’ Black & White Heels, $29.99, Sizes 5.5-11 and can you believe it, the only pair I saw was in my size. Then I went to Dots and found this black and white sheer hi-low top, $18.80, Sizes 1X-3X and  wore a black strapless bra by Torrid under it and paired it all with the High Waist Zip Up Stripe Pants, ($25.99) that Posh Shoppe had recently sent me. (Similar pair here). Lastly I just added a black & white Chanel bracelet and bold earrings from Ashley Stewart to match all of my other black and white theme.
