Coco Chanel once said “Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”

For me personally I have taken that idea and turned it into what I’m fairly certain is a small religion. If one is ever to peek into my closet you will see a whole lot of black and white. It is by far my fav combination…not to mention Black is my fav color and white is easily second. And for me it doesn’t stop at just clothing; shoes, accessories even my jewelry is laced with either black or white.

And it has been that way since well I can remember. In fact, it was pointed out to me once looong ago when I was a kid, by another kid, that I “don’t wear a lot of color. I only seem to wear black…or white.” My reaction, “Um, okay.” (quizzical look on face)

Now it’s not like I have it out for color, in fact I love color, I just don’t really care for it on me, sorry (not sorry).  The thing is I know what works for me, and black and white is what works.

What is your fashion harmony? What color (or colors) is your go to?
