Black and white stripe skater dress pink heels 8439

For my outfit for the NU You Empowerment Brunch I decided to combine fun and flirty with classic and feminine. I had this dainty piece sitting in the back of my closet for a while now. When I heard about this event, I immediately thought this skater dress would be perfect. It’s got a vibe that says brunch in an old New York feel that’s a little bit Audrey Hepburn and a little Sarah Jessica Parker.

I turned down the traditional and turned up the memorable with not-so-subtle pops of pink, actually, hot pink. I love throwing a black and white outfit for a loop with the addition of a bold, unapologetic color. I borrowed the ribbon belt from another dress and can't quite remember where I picked up the little clutch but the contrast of these items and my pink shoes, and necklace against the black came together perfectly to create a nearly effortless ensemble that still demands attention.

I'm at it again with the menswear pieces. I love to see funky looks with women wearing suspenders but I kept it pretty simple this time opting for this chic black and white look, which is primarily white with a touch of black. It's a look that resembles something you might see a reporter wearing in an old school movie. I'm a writer so it seemed pretty appropriate, n’est-ce pas? A classic button-down, long sleeve shirt and white pants are given some smart personality with black suspenders which feature subtle silver finishes along with a black fedora. I'm ready to get the story.

  • Shirt: H&M, White Long Sleeve Button Down
  • Pants: The Limited, White Slacks
  • Suspenders: Carter Room, Pinstriped Suspenders
  • Shoes: Nine West, Nubuck Peep Toe Heels
  • Fedora: Novelty store find

Bad Ass Business black and white work look with purple

Some times you just feel a little badass. For instances like those, you need a look that reflects that mood. I don’t do dark colors to often but when I’m feeling especially fierce, a look like this is right up my ally.  I would probably add in a touch of purple for just a bit color but nothing too attention grabing. How could you not be ready to kick ass and take names in an ensemble like this?
