Black, White and All That Jazz

Black and White Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Black Peeptoes: SM Parisian Plus
Pearl Charm Bracelet and Key Necklace: From Mom
Watch: Mango

If there's a theme you probably won't go wrong in, it's black and white. Wearing a monochromatic outfit almost instantly adds polish and chicness minus the effort. It doesn't hurt that it's currently on-trend too. If you've been following my recent posts, I've probably mentioned being lazy too many a couple of times, which is why when I was given a mere hour to prepare for an event, I naturally gravitated towards this black and white ensemble.

Let's not forget that the dress also had that peplum look, floral print and cut-outs to boot -- just some of my style weaknesses. For a plus-size girl living in this petite part of the world, this combination doesn't come up ever too often.

Now how could I resist a dress like that?

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

    1. Colors are a great way to brighten an outfit, but black and white, when done nicely, makes one look really polished. :)

      Thanks for visiting the blog, Sumi!
