Black and White: A Challenge for Me!

Hellllllo Readers!  Wow, two posts in one day.  Seriously??  This is not what I intended, and I really hope I haven't catapulted you all straight into the arms of Snoresville!  I have been working on my inspiration board to get all of my many goals organized, so I can slow myself down and take ONE. STEP. AT. A. TIME. Wreeeeeeeeeeek!  Bam!  Derailed....

A very stylish friend of mine, Lori, sent me a nice email this evening around 9pm telling me about a site titled EVERY BODY every wear, where readers may submit their stylistic interpretations for the given theme. The opportunity to play along with this fun game is once a month, and today happened to be that day... Theme: Black and White.  

So what totally insane thing do I do?  You got it.  In jammies, bedroom shoes and all, I ran straight up the stairs and down the hall for my closet, pouring over the items in my head, because what if this opportunity is over by 9:30pm??  I've got to hurry!  I literally pull this outfit in 2 minutes and take 10 minutes to put it all together.  It took me 7 of those minutes to tie the scarf on my head!  It is really hard to tie a slippery silk scarf when you are moving so fast, and you can't seem slow down enough to even roll the scarf through your fingers.... There's a saying... "The Hurrieder I Go, The Behinder I Get".  That is me.

Anyway, I got it on, and I'm ready!  Racing back to the top of the stairs I yell down to most wonderful man in the world... "Jon, grab the camera. Please hurry!"  Kinda like a real emergency only not.  Anyway.  So here you have it. For now, I gotta go to bed.... hopefully I'll be able to sleep.  I'm a little wired.  Black + White...

Well what do you think?  How did I do??  I am thinking this will serve as Fashion Friday, on a late Tuesday night, and I'll bring you the deets on Sunday.  
For the love of classic basic black and white gone stylish... Have a wonderful week!  Whitley
