High Contrast: Pin It Up!

Happy Friday dolls!
As you all have seen in September 2012 runway shows, display windows, and just about everywhere else; black and white is the hype this season.  Black has always been my favorite color for wearing even before I had kids.  It not only slims you down, but its so sexy.  From maxi dresses to the LBD's, the pant suit, etc.  These piece just look extra fab in black!  With white to kick up in contrast, it's just on another level of sexy.

This outfit was so easy to put together.  Everything was in my closet from last year except the pumps.      For the skirt I was inspired by The Penny Closet.  As soon as I saw this quite easy and fashionable trick, I had to try it.  I basically pinned up a maxi skirt to give the illusion of a hi-lo skirt. I tried to hide the pinned parts with a belt but for some reason it kept going out of place (you'll see what I mean in the pics).

Would you try this trick?

Be Inspired & ENJOY!

"There are three things that amaze me— no, four things that I don’t understand:
 how an eagle glides through the sky, how a snake slithers on a rock,
 how a ship navigates the ocean, how a man loves a woman. (NLT)"
Proverbs 30:18-19
