WIW : Black & Cream

Hi Ladies,

Work day today and our weather is very confusing at the moment making it a bit challenging in the mornings:)

This is a bit of a fallback formula for me that I feel very comfortable and very me in:)

Black Ponte Skinny Leg Pants
Black Blouse with neck detail
Cream trimmed knit jacket
Multi strand silver and pearl necklace
Favourite Pearl Ring
Black heeled booties

I should apologise for not looking into the camera. I promise I am not trying to create a moody/arty model pose! I'm having a recurring eye infection so once again I have a red eye making me look a tad freaky! Thought I would spare you all lol.

So thanks for looking. Any suggestions etc always very much appreciated.

xxx Deborah

    Sooo fab! I love the drama and contrast of the long panels and the white trim. You look sensational as usual!

    As I've said before Deborah and will say again - NOBODY does draping and black/cream as well as you do. You look lovely - and I'm sorry about your eye infection. I'm sure you don't look "freaky" though (lol)!

  • Parsley replied 11 years ago

    No need to apologize, Deborah- I hope your eye feels better soon!

    No wonder you feel comfortable in this- you look absolutely stunning!
    I love the dramatic shape of your jacket and the way the cream borders accentuate it. And the neck detail on your blouse is the textural icing on the cake.
    I LOVE this!

  • K. Period. replied 11 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love black and white. So clean, crisp and interesting, especially with the textures and shapes you paired. You look fantastic!

  • Aida replied 11 years ago

    Beautiful silhouette, layering, and texture! You are a master at this type of drama. LOVE the cream bits in this outfit.

  • merwoman replied 11 years ago

    So annoying these things - do hope you are on the mend by the time you read this!
    Love this outift - you look long and lean, and so sophisticated.

  • Thistle replied 11 years ago

    Wow, you look amazing. I love The draping effect!

  • Susie replied 11 years ago

    I LOVE this outfit! You look so chic; each element is perfect.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 11 years ago

    I can only echo what others have said: you look gorgeous in this outfit. It's so elegant, chic, sophisticated, and you look completely at ease in it. The jewelry is a perfect choice to play up that amazing cream tipping on the cardigan. How wonderful to have pieces that you can combine so easily on those confusing days!

  • Debora replied 11 years ago

    Absolutely stunning! This outfit takes my breath away. I hope your eyes are feeling better soon.

  • Jaime replied 11 years ago

    I love the b/w jacket and also how the tapered pants with booties streamlines your bottom half and let's me focus on it, if that makes sense.

  • pil replied 11 years ago

    Fab, fab, fab. I love it.

  • morethanbeige replied 11 years ago

    Perfect! Hope your eye is better soon.

  • sarah replied 11 years ago

    SO fab, Deborah! i just love how the cream brightens this up and adds drama. Sorry about your eye infection - hope it clears up soon.

  • jayne replied 11 years ago

    this is YOUR uniform and so perfect for you. I love the white detail softening all the black.

    Thank you all so much for your positive feedback. I felt great in this outfit all day:). In fact I'm considering a variation on this formula today! Lol hmmm does that make me lazy or style savvy..... Have a lovely day xxx

  • Inge replied 11 years ago

    Not lazy at all:-) You always look stunning in black & cream, and I personally also love that colour combo, so simple and strong. You looked wonderful, Deborah. Can't wait to see tomorrow's version:-)

  • Mona replied 11 years ago

  • JulieJohn replied 11 years ago

    You look stunning, and a bit like a dashing Robin Hood, in a feminine way of course. I can't wait to see more of these YOU looks, and thanks for sharing!

  • Suz replied 11 years ago

    Happy sigh.

    You are Debby Harry - all grown up.

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    Ooh Suz! Have you been on my Pinterest?! I'm a big Deborah Harry fan:). She had a huge impact on me...such an awesome compliment xx

  • Lyn D. replied 11 years ago

    Well the weather is very up and down at the moment, so boots and booties and layers are still our best bet.
    This outfit is just seamless in a way that we see just a lovely, head to toe stylish persona, and the head down pose only adds to the overall 'arty' effect!
