Shop the look:

Sometimes there’s no room for grey. It’s either black or it’s white…or in the case of this outfit, it’s both. Pops of color had tried to make their way into this look, but it just wasn’t as striking as the simplicity of black and white.

My dress is the result of my new found obsession with eShakti. (Click here to see my last post featuring a dress from them.) I love the idea of being able to customize a dress – which eShakti let’s you do! Admittedly, this dress probably would’ve looked better if I wouldn’t have added the sleeves. But dresses with sleeves are so hard to come by, so when I’m given the opportunity to add them to a dress…I just can’t resist. Also, I was so happy that this dress is actually knee length. Usually when I order a “knee length” dress, it seems as though hits at mid-thigh (and I don’t have that long of legs!). But that problem is easily solved when you enter your height into your eShakti order. Genius I tell ya! My only complaint is that this dress is wrinkle-prone…and I am not a fan of ironing! Haha.

I’m also really happy with my new purse AMIClubwear was kind enough to send me. I needed a more “grown up” purse to mix in with my love of novelty bags. And this was just what I was looking for. Black and white will go with everything, and it also comes with an adjustable strap… so I can wear it as a crossbody if I want. Love that! And even for its inexpensive price – it’s quality! This purse will last through daily use. (So, get ready to see it in a ton of future outfit posts. Haha.)

I’m curious, how do you feel about this all black and white look? Or do you need a pop of color in your outfits? Let me know in the comments!

    I think this is such an elegant look! I love black and white. And I adore how you’ve styled it with pearls, very graceful and chic outfit! Beautiful. Colours are great fun, but sometimes black and white is all you need.

    I’m very impressed with your willpower! I’ve tried to go all black and white before, and my hands start to itch before adding a pop of color somewhere! I think this look is so classic, though. Very Chanel. I might have to try to fight against the urge to add a pop color one of these days, cause you look stunning sweets. πŸ™‚

    Loving this glam look on you! Reminds me of a classic movie star. So true about dresses with sleeves, you can never find them! Sometimes I’ll get a dress just because it has sleeves lol. Loving the chic bag too. Perfect! All black and white is so striking. Love how you kept it simple that way.

    What a pretty dress! I love that you added the sleeves–I think it really adds to the classic vibe I’m getting from it. You look like you’ve been plucked from an old film πŸ™‚

    It’s like you were plucked right out of a classic black and white movie- you look absolutely amazing! I also like how you kept the outfit black and white with the only pop of color being your lips. I’ve always been a black clothing girl (it tends to hide a multitude of sins), so keeping an outfit a simple black and white one usually isn’t a problem with me haha. Can’t wait to catch up on all of your blog posts!
