Black, White and Patterned All Over

I realize that this post is in direct opposition to my resolution to embrace jewel tones in 2010, but it does uphold the promise to embrace patterns. Black and white remain wardrobe staples in refreshingly chic graphic prints.

  1. THAT CLUTCH! Amazing! I think my New Year's obsession are funky accessories, and I resolve to invest more in them :)
    Great picks!

  2. The Graffiti Pumps are absolutely amazing - love them!! :)

  3. Black and white never goes out of style and balances classic and chic.

  4. Oh that Issa dress - yes!

    p.s. If you want to add a stamp to London, I'll introduce you to some great markets and shopping here. :)

  5. great pieces! u have great taste :)

  6. My favorite!!! I LOVE Black and white, especially chevron print!

  7. PS Are you going to Northern or Southern Cali this year?

  8. I'm smitten with those heels.. love the pop of color on the stiletto!

    Love & Aloha, S

  9. definitely some nice patterns here. i especially like the zebra tank! plus, any one of these pieces would look great with a jewel tone accessory

    also, thanks so much for stopping by my blog! one of my friends has a quilt like that, haha. she started noticing that some of her stuff was missing and her mom surprised her with it. i think they look great, but maybe i'll wait til they don't fit me anymore...

  10. I love black and white, it's so chanel.

  11. You can never go wrong with black and white!

  12. Yes, I have a tunic in this pattern and it's a great mixing piece, since the black and white can go with any color and other patterns even.

  13. Blk and white always work well. So easy and chic. Color can be added to "change things up" -- say perhaps a *jewel* tone color. ;)


  14. Most of the time I'm not a fan of black and white clothes/outfits because it's so stark when there are equal amounts of either color but I am loving that Charlotte R. top, the avant garde design is gorgeous.

  15. such great pieces!

    love your blog! :)

  17. printed jersey dress - i need!! no matter how hard i try i will always have wayy more black in my closet than anything else... i think i'm just accepting it :)
