Black & White Fashion

I have a not so secret obsession with dressing in black and white. My closet does have some items with color. However, most of my favorite pieces are black and/ or white. It makes combining various garments and adding a splash of color quite easy. An outfit need not be built in one day or one shopping trip. Many times, I work the new items into my closet. It helps to keep my wardrobe fresh and exciting. This color combination is very popular and it is easy to find a beautifully interesting item. The key to wearing a lot of black and white is the quality of the fabric, the uniqueness of the style, and a figure flattering fit.  One of my favorite things to do is wear modest make up with vibrant red lips when wearing these combination of colors.


This weekend, I found a few in my theme colors that I really like. I will post pictures soon of how these partnered with items that I currently have.

Prey for me

Shoes of Prey

Have you ever found a pair of shoes that you love, but the store did not have your size? I hate when that happens. Well, ladies, no more. I have found a line of shoes, Shoes of Prey, sold at Nordstroms that solves that problem and more. Shoes of Prey, not only, offers beautiful shoes at reasonable prices, but they also offer custom options. Yes! You can custom design and order shoes to your taste and that are just your size. A Nordstrom stylist will work with you to choose the style, color, and heel height. The bad news is this is currently offered at only four of their stores in Paramus, NJ; Bellevue, WA; Newport Beach, CA; San Francisco, CA; and Arlington, VA. The good news is that more design studios are planned and you can purchase many of their ready to wear shoes in the stores and on-line. Check out the Nordstroms’ website ( to see the lovely items below many more Shoes of Prey’s “marvalous” designs. There goes my lunch money.
