Black and White - Two


 Black and white is always so simple and easy to put together considering that they can be put together in hundreds of ways. I featured some of my black and white looks on the blog last year but decided to do a count down of the ones I'm doing this year. So, this is black and white - two. For black and white - one, check here.

I started my blog to document my style makeover and I think it is going well gradually. I used to be in a lot of dark and greys and did not feel like I looked my best. Now, I'm starting to infuse some color into my closet but it does not hurt to do a black and white look or greys once in a while. Style is somewhat subjective most times and some people are comfortable in black the whole year round. I had a course mate in one of my classes when I was in college who wore black outfits to class the entire semester and I used to be amazed at this. I thought of having a conversation with her about her style but was too busy to do so. You see, fashion can be a conversation starter and we can preach any message with the way we dress. I guess everyone should be happy in their comfort zone but for me, I think color is fun. There is a reason God created us black, white and brown. There is a reason roses are red and white and pink; There is a reason trees are short and tall. Diversity is fun and diversity is beautiful. Above all, God made all things beautiful.

One of my favorite stores to shop is Victoria's secret and I do check their website every now and then to see what is trending or what is on sale. I really love all the looks below because they are so put together. Also, the featured sandals and boots  are on sale and they are on my wish list. I recently purchased the leopard print sandals for $29.99 and it was a good discount because the original price was $98. Things go very fast on the website though and it is better to get an item you really love at the original price or you would only get limited sizes when things go on sale.

Were $78 and $98 but now $29.99

Was $128 but now $39. 99
Was $158 but now $49.99

It's always great to buy smart and have good bargains. This is one of the qualities of a virtuous woman illustrated in Proverbs 31: 10-31 of the Bible. Verses  21, 22 and 30 are very remarkable.

"She (A Virtuous Woman) is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet. She makes herself coverings; her clothing is fine linen and purple...Charm is deceitful, and Beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
