As I was putting this outfit together I looked for pieces that made a statement on their own but also worked and complimented other pieces. But I also wanted there to be a pull to the pieces for their shape and form alone, not because of texture, prints, or pattern. For we fall in love with color sometimes, and submit ourselves to certain rules of a fashionable rainbow, we don’t always look closely at the real design of the pieces and how they work with other shapes.

Black and white has a way of washing everything out, keeping it simple, while still making an outfit look boldly attractive. There’s a certain kind of drama that can be found in black and white that no other color combination can offer.
As we celebrate love this valentine’s day, we celebrate different identities that form a kind of whole. Perhaps that’s why Valentine’s days is no longer exclusive to just lovers. It’s for anyone who can appreciate the others in their lives that bring out their best and compliment their personalities. It’s seeing past the labels and color and simply loving. In a kind of black and white manner, no complications or rules of what should go with what, just love.
