MCLV Style: Black & White

There’s a funny story to go along with these pictures…

I had actually brought this lovely green dress from Saffron Raw Threads to wear for the shoot but fate intervened when a gentleman bumped into me, spilling his coffee all over the dress. Rather than waste precious time with my favorite NYC photographer LydiaΒ who was visiting for the Summer, I ran into H&M and threw together a new black & white look.

Et voila!


Graphic Print Dress – H&M {Similar styles here, here & here}

Heels – Sam Edelman

Blazer – Aqua

ClutchΒ – BCBGMaxAzria

I have to confess that I really enjoyed how this look turned out. I like the combination of black & white graphics with the bold, colorful clutch – It’s a visually interesting and eye-catching combination.

And another confessions? I’ve worn this dress TO DEATH since this day. It goes with everything and I absolutely love it.

Have YOU had a major fashion disaster like this happen to you?
