Living in Black and White – Accessories

Life isn’t always straight forward or as simple as black and white but when it comes to fashion, living in Black and White is easy! Hopefully we have looked at a few pretty cool options for all facets of a b&w lifestyle this past week.

Now we just need to check out some great accessories!

As usual, I have cruised around the blogoshpere and found vintage pieces that I love and think will work well with just about any  style…or maybe just my style! I have tried to provide the links to each of these items for your ease in further investigation should you so chose.

Black and White Beaded Collar – I can not begin to tell you how much I want this!! I think it is amazing but because I am on my shopping fast, I am sharing it with all of you! I just imagine how great it would be with a strapless black or white dress. It could be a very simple dress that would become stunning with this collar added. A really handy piece to have when you want to go from day to evening. It would work well over any dress, strapless or not. And image what it would do to a plain white t-shirt or silky tank! I go all dreamy just thinking about it.

Black and White Bowtie – I think this would be really cute to wear with a tuxedo jacket and a crisp white shirt. The floral print gives it a feminine touch but still allows for the masculine lines of the tuxedo look. Tres Chic.


Black and White Cowboy Boots – You didn’t think I could get through this without some kind of cowboy boot did you? I love this pair and as they are vintage, they are already broken in for you! However, if you really must have your own brand new, I would like to recommend you have a look at They have tons of styles to choose from, the prices are reasonable and the shipping is international. I like wearing my cowboy boots, as you have seen, predominately with midi and maxi skirts but will often pull them on to wear with tailored pants to work in the winter.

Black and White Leopard Purse – How cute is this handbag! Again it’s a little quirky but it certainly has style! You may have noticed that I am currently loving square handbags. To me they are soooo vintage and capable of making a style statement without shouting in your face. When the shopping fast is over I want to add a black bag to the wardrobe. If this one is still around at the start of July…it is soooo mine!

Black and White Crystal Bracelet – This is a lovely bracelet but I would buy three and wear them in multiples. Certainly if one is this pretty then three would be spectacular! It’s just the right amount of bling to put on when you are heading out for a night on the town with friends or your Fashion Mister.

Black and White Geometric Print Headband – I like the retro feel of this headband. With its geometric print it is very 60s and 70s. Plus with my hair getting longer it is nice to have something to hold all the curls out of my face. It would be cute as for the weekend or lunch with the girls and how perfect for the day you are running late for work and the hair just won’t cooperate!

As always, I could go on forever but hopefully this has inspired you to find some cool black and white  accessories so you can continue living the black and white life!

So which accessories are your favourite? Any others you have found that you couldn’t live without?
