The Return of B&W :: Ruffle train blouse & Structured skirt

The Return of B&W-12

Happy Monday everyone!

The Return of B&W-1

The Return of B&W-9

The Return of B&W-4

Even though I love playing with black and white, I find it quite creatively challenging at times.  Limiting to (and at the same time liberated by) a single hue, I gravitate towards structures, patterns, prints and shapes to add elements of interest to a monochromatic outfit.  When I saw this ruffle train blouse, I instinctively wanted to couple it with my structured leather skirt to create a double train effect.  The structural elements of these two pieces were so much fun to play with!
