Black + White + Chanel = True Love

It looks like Chanel’s spring 2009 couture show was filled with pretty frocks and stylish suits all in black, white or a mix of both. It’s very crisp, very classic and very covetable. If black is the new black (again), then just wait til the sun comes out a little more and white has its big moment. It’s only a matter of time! I can’t get enough of the black and white palette, so this collection just makes me giddy. Thanks, Karl!

InStyle with Black, White & Yellow

Check out this great room featured in January’s InStyle magazine. Gotta love that black and white!

Go to Extremes
In your home, classic black-and-white — shown in a living room by L.A. designers Woodson and Rummerfield — is inexpensive and widely available but always looks lavish. For added interest, work in a third color, such as hot pink, red or yellow.

Black & White on Blair

It doesn’t get much better than Gossip Girl style and the episode last week featured queen bee Blair in a fabulous black and white coat. The only thing better? Pairing it with a bright red bag.
By the way, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Live What You Love

I saw a snapshot of this artwork by heartfish on one of my favorite blogs {black.white.bliss} and had to see more. I love it! Clean and simple goes a long way. There are a few different color options that were all made at a letter press studio in New York. Of course, my favorite is the black and white but the yellow is a close second.

They’re available for purchase here on Etsy for about $12.50 each.

The City Style – Curtains @ DVF

Yes, The City is one of my guilty pleasures and yes, I love the style of the girls’ fashions, the apartment styles and even their work places. Tonight we got a glimpse of the DVF studio during a photo shoot and it took about .135 seconds for me to fall in love with the big black and white curtains hung up everywhere.
They look a little similar to these curtains I got awhile back at Target in Pier Park that are only $34.99-$39.99. I have them up in more than one place around the house and I love them. I’m not sure that black and white will ever get old for me!

Black & White Pillow Covers

Black & white is my absolute favorite color combination and I love these throw pillow covers from Ikea. Like everything else at Ikea, it’s a super bargain at only $6.99 each. I have two sitting pretty on my couches right now!

Fetching Finds at the LOFT

I got the latest issue of InStyle in the mailbox a few days ago (which is always big excitement!) and saved one of those little cards that usually fall out and end up in the trash. This one was for 20% off at Ann Taylor LOFT and armed with my coupon, I stopped by the store in Pier Park. I got this black and white jacket for $29.99 and a cute yellow cardigan for $19.99 THEN because I spent over $50 I got a $25 cash back card for my next purchase over$50. Not too shabby! They’ve got a few new things to choose from so go check ‘em out (Destin Commons or Pier Park) and maybe buy an InStyle beforehand.

Coaster Cool

In case you’ve been living under a rock, let me be the first to tell you — black and white is so now. It’s everywhere. It’s in clothes, in shoes, around the house. It’s solid. It’s in stripes and polka dots and plaids and patterns and … well, you get the picture. Seriously, EVERYWHERE.

I found these fabulously chic coasters by UK’s Paperchase at Pier Park in Borders (of all places) and snatched them up before someone else did. For $14, I got 4 supercute coasters in 4 different designs and can even use the box they come in as decoration itself. The fact that they’re actually useful is just an added bonus!
