Black and Ivory



This is the ivory based black and ivory wardrobe.  The other black and ivory post is black based.  All of these pieces are daytime and work appropriate except for the bustier.  I am narrow in the shoulders and could not pull off the bustier without the shrug for balance.  I don't wear strapless tops either, but I love this piece, so I think I would be comfortable with the shrug over the top.  I threw in the batman top for whimsy and a more casual feel.  I typically don't wear tee shirts....they are too boxy and tend to fit too tightly in the hips and bunch up at the top.  This one has a nice curve friendly cut and is a little longer, which skims the hips and lengthens the distance between the hips and bust to create a nice balance.

  3. Me too, Wendy. I am so crazy about black and white, or black and ivory. I can't get enough of them. I had fun "shopping" for them. Glad you enjoy.

    I'm hoping to get some outfit pics of myself soon, but I am not liking my camera poses...

    It's funny, I have no trouble posing for pictures when I am competing ballroom...but at home, posing for outfit pictures, I look and feel stiff!

    You always look so comfortable and natural in your pictures. How do you do it?
