Black & Blanco

by Jessica Sturdy on January 15, 2013

We were talking Black & White yesterday, so I figured I’d share one of my takes on the trend! I rocked my black & blanco with pops of metallic silver, but I can’t wait to sport the look with a splash of neon (love these flats!) or animal print (this clutch is amazing!).

J.Crew Factory Bow Sweater (sold out, similar style here)/ J.Crew Boy Shirt / J.Crew Snow Leopard Pants / J.Crew Metallic Bow Flats (on sale!) / Michael Kors Watch (similar) / Sequin NYC Leopard Bangle / gifted Milly Clutch (on sale!) / Nail Polish: Julep Dendrie + Essie Carnival

Thanks for the pictures, Rose!

I love the print of those pants so much – I ordered them back when they were on sale, but they were NOT flattering on me at all! Love this all-black & white look…the metallic accessories are perfecct :)

Love it! I had my eye on that sweater for a while, but guess I waited too long :-( And those flats are adorable and look super comfy!

I have two questions:

1) What is your opinion of the quality of J. Crew Factory clothes vs. J. Crew clothes?

2) I like quality clothes. My normal haunts are J. Crew and BR. However, buying all of the trend pieces at these stores would break my budget. Do you know of anywhere that is of better quality than Forever 21, H&M, etc, but closer in price point?

Love this combo! You look so great in flats… I always find myself opting for heels… so this is some great inspo for me! I wore pastel leopard skinnies on my blog today… check it out! (I really love the boldness of yours!)
