Black & White .... and purple

I love wearing black. I love how it contrasts with my skin tone. I was going to wear this outfit with a black sweater but wanted some colour but not just the usual red that is usually worn with black and white. Love this purple sweater. I wore some earrings that has purple, blue and dark red in it- the look like Christmas ornaments.

Grecian goddess

Forgive me on the title , it may seem like I'm full of it, but it was the look I was going for when I put on this dress. 

I was on my way to a party- Daydreams 2012. Daydreams is a traditionally beach party but this venue wasn't exactly at the beach but had an ocean view. Patrons could come dressed in beach wear or a little more dressed up- not the clubby kind of party dress code-wise. I wasn't feeling confident enough nor could I bother with wearing swimwear. I paired the dress with some coral and peach gold earrings for a contrasting effect.

Also hadn't worn my Michele watch I got as a gift. Too expensive for every day wear, I had it for a while and thought why not bring it out for this party.

Dress- Charlotte Russe (US$10, sale)
Slippers- Agaci (US$20)
Watch- Michele (gift)

Animal print & teal

As mentioned in a previous post, I'm really liking animal print. Some people even view it as a neutral. As pictured below the top I have one below has the neutrals in it of black, grey and white. 

I wanted to wear a skirt with this top to go to a party and I didn't have a black or white or grey skirt that I liked to pair it with. In my search I came across this skirt, I hadn't worn it yet so I put it up against the shirt & it worked!

Top- Charlotte Russe (US$15, sale)
Skirt- Forever 21 (US10, sale)
Shoes - Marshall's (US$20, sale)
Sorry about the resolution on this photo.
