I have always felt that there are some few things that are either black or white, few, but still, some.
I never had children, these, I feel, are my children.
Black And White

This is Jia Jia Fei, “digital strategist for the art world.” Who knew that was a job, can I have one like it? I love her entire look, glasses to shoes. No, the Prada shoes don’t hurt. Or do they?
In my constant search for a way to leave my all black behind, I’m wondering if this might be a look for me? Black and white seems like a good compromise, and yet I’m wondering if I would feel too much like a piece of modern sculpture? Nothing wrong with that, I suppose.
To see another great example of black and white style, here’s Lyn Slater, The Accidental Icon.
Remember those lovely Lizzie Fortunato earrings from my last post? Here’s the dress I would wear with them. It’s from the “Boho” style company Free People. It’s 100% linen, a really great price, and also comes in white!
Linen has really become a “go to” summer fabric for me. It’s light, you can wear it wrinkly, and it’s sustainable. Yeah, me in pink. What do you think?
For someone who doesn’t like “beauty rules,” I really liked these, by Michael Kors. Read the entire article here.
Think of your beauty bag as a Holy Trinity.
Don’t be too precious about your eye makeup.
Be a minimalist and a maximalist.
Go for a flash of gold.
