WIW: Cobalt & Black

Hi Fabbers,

Stuck in the office all day trying to catch up on admin in preparation for the Christmas holidays which are closing in fast.

Black Straight Leg Pants, cobalt blouse and black shooties. For fun and interest added my black and white zebra belt.

How does this work?

And for this of you who recall last week I was having trouble focussing my camera...well I remembered to pop on my glasses, and then forgot to take them off. I expect early next year I will be seeking advice on new frames. These are ok but not great. Most glasses are too big and I am needing to wear them more frequently when working so I need a really fab pair!

Thanks for looking.

    Deborah! I lurve your glasses! I'm getting a sexy-librarian vibe here, even though your outfit is more modern than classic. Love the draping of your top and it's brilliant hue. That's a nice fluid fit on your trousers as well. I can't wait to help you choose frames next year!

    Deborah, you look beautiful! I love cobalt on you and cobalt plus black plus snow leopard? Well, that's a combo after my own heart.  So pretty! 

  • MuseumGal replied 7 years ago

    Love the combo, and I think the glasses are all kinds of fab.

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    You look killer sensational in this shade of blue, Debs. Please wear it more often. 

  • Marley replied 7 years ago

    Woa!  Look at you in that cobalt!  Perfect color for you.  Love the touch of the patterned belt - and you look great in the glasses!

  • Caro in Oz replied 7 years ago

    I agree with the others you look amazing in this blue. Love the belt but feel it could be a tad wider, what do you think?

  • replied 7 years ago

    Oh...I like a lot.  Cobalt and black has always been a favorite of mine.

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    Didn't mean to sound bossy. It's rare that you wear colour Debs, so I think I came across as overly zealous. My apologies.  

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Angie, you NEVER need to apologise. I always apprecite you comments and thoughts.  This is a colour I find easy to wear.  I feel it fits my style aesthetic but there are so many colours that I feel do not.  I would say that cobalt is definitly one my accent colours now.  I have booties, pants, scarf, pencil skirt and even a necklace in cobalt now.

    *happy dance*

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Ooh Angie, I forgot my new cobalt sandals!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Beautiful. And I like the specs, too -- mind you, I sort of have to say that since they are very similar to mine! ;)

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    You are gorgeous with and without the glasses. Love the cobalt top on you.

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    Beautiful!  Cobalt is fab on you.

  • jayne replied 7 years ago

    Geooooorgeous!  Love that combination....inspired t wear my own version soon.

  • Ornella replied 7 years ago

    Oh wow. Let me start by saying you look fab with those glasses.

    More love for the colour combination... and what Angie said - sensational colour on you.

  • Debra replied 7 years ago

    What a great outfit, love the fit of the trousers and blouse and that little zebra belt :) :) :)

  • Lantana replied 7 years ago

    Well I really like the prim vibe from the glasses against the slouch.
    Where do you buy belts Deborah?

  • No Fear of Fashion replied 7 years ago

    Fantastic blouse!! So elegant. And such agood colour for you. And I like you with or without glasses. You have such a pretty face and hair, you can get away with everything.
    The trousers are very good, but do you normally wear higher heels with them?

  • anne replied 7 years ago

    Miss skinny legs!!  And of course, love the cobalt!

  • Laura replied 7 years ago

    The belt ties it all together beautifully!

  • amiable replied 7 years ago

    Absolutely beautiful!

  • lyn67 replied 7 years ago

    Love your specs, Deb! And cobalt is your color, did you know?:-) YLF! Loved the white belt!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Love this Deb - the belt is just the right touch and of course the cobalt blue is divine on you. Absolutely love the drape of that top - it's perfect! I also think you look very pretty in your glasses.

  • ElleH replied 7 years ago

    Love, love, love this outfit & agree with Angie on the blue.

  • Lyn D. replied 7 years ago

    The drape of this shirt reminds me of my Katies one in black/cobalt.
    I find it makes for a lovely relaxed yet feminine feel.

  • Sarah A replied 7 years ago

    I dont think ive often see you sporting more voluminous trousers and you look amazing in them. Great with the pop in the shirt. The colbalt in indeed a surpurb color for you! :)

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    Well you know I love this!  And the silhouette is deliciously modern and sleekly simple.
