WIW: Black & White

Hi Fabbers,

I am sitting waiting, having arrived early for a work meeting so thought I would do a quick post ( gotta love the YLF app).

Wore this earlier in the week to work.

Simple black and white with minimal accessories. I am wearing my gorgeous Secret Santa earrings from Jayne;)

I enjoyed wearing this outfit but really felt it needed heels :)

Thanks for taking the time to look and your thoughts always appreciated.

    I really like your blouse, it looks good. I think the flats look good too. Would your peep toe booties work?

  • kellygirl replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous! You wear black and white like no one else. The cap toe flats are perfect in this. Love your new do too!

  • pil replied 9 years ago

    Heels, flats, it's all good on you. The peep toe booties would be fun though.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 9 years ago

    I was admiring the shoes with the outfit and then noticed your comment about heels. I do think the flats are fab--love the metallic toe. Super outfit--so elegant!

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Ceit yes! Those booties would be perfect. I hadn't thought if that ;)

  • LACeleste replied 9 years ago

    You look really nice Deborah!

  • Catnip replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous outfit, and I'm loving the new haircut.  I think the flats look great, but heels would also look good. 

  • Raisin replied 9 years ago

    Looking super cool and chic as always Deborah!

  • Thistle replied 9 years ago

    Chic, graphic and sophisticated! You look fab!

  • Susie replied 9 years ago

    With a title like that I had to look!

    While I would usually agree on a preference for heels, these flats are interesting enough to elevate (pun intended!) the outfit! YLF!

    Hello, Queen of Black & White! You look lovely.  I think the flats look great and give this a nice "on the go" vibe. l know what you mean about the heels, too.  They would change the vibe to more of a statement.  Both fantastic, though! 

  • Caro in Oz replied 9 years ago

    YLF I thought of your booties too.

  • Angie replied 9 years ago

    Fabulous. So pretty, fresh and modern with the white top.

  • Parsley replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous, Deborah!
    Tell me more about that blouse! I think I need something like that...
    Your outfit is so graphic and elegant. The flats look lovely for when you're on the go, but of course heels would look fabulous, too, for an occasion when you don't need to be on your feet too much.
    I think your black things look even better with a pop of white or color.
    Your hair looks wonderful, too. Are you enjoying your new cut?

  • Sharon replied 9 years ago

    I like the flats, Deborah. I sometimes think that a voluminous top with a slim bottom does well with a flat or a chunkier shoe to balance it. The metallic toe works well!

  • karymk replied 9 years ago

    The shoes make this! I kind of think with looks this minimal you have to hve that one special thing.

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Parsley the blouse is from a store here called Katies.   And I have just added a better pictures of just the blouse for you.  It is double layered at the front with the top layer draping over the bottom one.  Very easy and comfortable to wear and ideal for our warm weather.

  • Parsley replied 9 years ago

    Thanks for the extra pictures, Deborah!
    I love that blouse, and would love to find something similar.

  • Gracie replied 9 years ago

    Strong , graphic and lovely. Loving your new hair!

  • Jaime replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love the white drapey blouse. I don't think you need heels but the peep toes would work brilliantly!

  • catgirl replied 9 years ago

    What do the flats look like?  Are they gold on the toes?  This is making me want flats...

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Una yes they have a gold tip.  Here is a better pic for you!

  • rae replied 9 years ago

    Ooh, love with both shoes! I finally acquired a white blouse at H&M's btgof sale... you are making me excited to wear it!

  • Debra replied 9 years ago

    You look great, I love the black and white and those shoes are perfect.
    What can I say about your new haircut ? It's you :)

  • Carole replied 9 years ago

    Such a chic outfit Deborah. What a great blouse! So interesting and different. I wish I could track down pieces like that!!!!

  • lyn67 replied 9 years ago

    Heels or not, looks great for a work  meeting! Polished and formal enough but still Deborah's artsy!

  • shedev replied 9 years ago

    Nice outfit. Love the blouse and both shoes.

  • Sarah A replied 9 years ago

    I adore your blouse Deb. The added pic really shows the fantastic layered detail. i think the flats look good here too! I'll be trying to catch more of your posts in 2014 as im really feeling inspired by your style :)

    This looks like a perfect look for you in hot weather. That white top was a fabulous find. I like both your flats and gorgeous heels.
