Black and White


For me, lately, it's all about black and white. I've always loved wearing black and white (a lot of this is laziness on my part - I buy lots of things in black and white because, well, it matches), and now I'm seeing it everywhere - it's even creeping into my work. I made this little book today, when I saw this beautiful black and white (with a touch of blue) chrysanthemum paper, I had to have it. Black and white is also showing up in home fashion, like this plate by Marimekko...

And on the runway in this dress by Stella McCartney. Vogue has named black and white as one of the top trends for spring 2007. I love it when the cycles come round, the planets align and I end up being in fashion again!

Darn, since leaving L.A. I have desperately tried to incorporate color into my life + finally break from that post-high school Goth/Morrissey/on-my-way-to-a-funeral look I was sporting for so many years. I guess I'll just have to buck the spring fashion trends.
AND since I have not mentioned it lately, your books are stunning! House arrest is paying off.

Thanks for the nice comments! I love the black tights thing too, that's another fashion that never went out of style for me. I've always had "licorice legs" even when it wasn't cool. (:
