black + white all over

I've been meaning to take outfit pictures nearly every single day for the last two or so weeks but every time I go to get dressed for the day I find myself reaching for a black and white striped dress. They're all different, hence why I own so many. Different stripe widths, different cuts, and tiny little variations like that are what gives me the excuse to keep buying them. But when it comes down to outfit pictures a blog full of striped dresses probably just wouldn't be that interesting ...or maybe it would!

Right now Modcloth is having a sale on dozens of new arrivals. While I was browsing through them my eyes kept being drawn to the same type of things, black and white items! I thought it might be fun to make a collage of my favorites from the sale section. I'm particularly fond of that first dress.

A not black and white bonus: these shoes! I actually own a black version of them, go figure, but they sure are dreamy in brown!

  1. I love #7 dress with the buttons, they really give it that extra something!
    I love monochrome so this post is great ♥ I love seeing peoples finds on Modcloth too as I find they have too much stuff for me to bother to sit down and sift through!

    1. Ya know, I feel the same way. Sometimes I'll be like "I'm gonna sit down and find myself something cute to buy" and then I just get lost digging through pages.

  2. Those panda shoes are killing me with their cuteness!

  3. Those panda shoes are amazing! Soooo adorable! I pretty much love everything on this list!

  4. Love this!! I saw those exact panda shoes in a magazine and fell in love!


  5. I'm totally with you on the black and white stripe obsession! It has run a muck all over my closet this past season.

    Those over-alls, though!!!


  6. Ahh that polkadot dress is heaven. I love monochrome outfits. Love the black flats too.

  7. I was just looking at a mod cloth zig zag dress in black and white the other day! I'm feeling pretty drawn to monocrome as well at the moment. Maybe you could do a post showing all your different black and white dresses. (Also, just saw the playing card duvet set in the sale, how awesome is that?)

  8. Adore the panda shoes, so ridiculously cute!! Xx

  9. You just can't go wrong with black and white! I'd love to see the way you style all your B&W garmets. And I feel like I'm totally needing some panda shoes right now..

  10. Oh! I'm the same way. All of my clothes seem to black and while right now and always dots or stripes in every size. I can't control it anymore. I had to just give in, ha!.

  11. Yes! I have a black and white striped dress from Anthropologie that is pretty much always the first thing I wear after doing laundry. So it spends most of the time in the hamper... haha. I find myself drawn to black or black and white right after I color my hair... I guess so the pretty, bold colors have a chance to shine (and I don't feel like just a beacon of attention, though I know it's probably a sad illusion)! :)
