My Black & White Story

Black and white is one of my fav colour combinations.  I know I’ve mentioned that before but it bares repeating.   So, when I came across some old re-runs of Charlie’s Angels I was inspired to recreate the cool 70’s vibe of police women television dramas like the Angels or Cagney & Lacey for day and night.  The two looks below also highlight the versatility of a great suit!


For my day time look I’ve paired my trusty black turtleneck with a white jacket and pants and funky wedge boots.


I love these Kady Fit pants by Eloquii as they make legs appear a little longer than they actually are and the fit is spot on.  One tip for my plus sized petite ladies, ankle pants are your friend!  I love them because I don’t need to have them hemmed they come that way already!  The icing on the cake is this hobo style handbag stolen borrowed from my Mom’s closet.  Thank you Mommy!




For night time, I upped the sexiness quotient by swapping out the turtle neck for a fitted tank top and leopard print pumps instead of my wedge boots.


I completed the look with gold jewelry, a playful clutch and Komono watch.
