  1. It is a great Idea for a challenge though I have to admit I’m not overly keen. Being a pale english girl, black and white make me look too gothic and formal and not in a good way.
    Although this could be a good opportunity to get some good basics into the wardrobe!
    Your themes are always fab Mena how do you come up with something new every time?
    I would agree with you about the Debbie Reynolds dress too!

  2. Love, love, love it! :)

  3. It can be so stunning, just not on me! I tend to get washed out or look like a waitress.

  4. Love it! Wearing a black and white top I made to work today.

  5. With olive skin that changes with the season, black and white always looks good on me!

    I love black & white together. There are some beautiful prints out there.

  7. Just don’t want to look like a Collingwood supporter – Ugh!

  8. I love black & white together – they feature heavily in my wardrobe.

  9. Love it! I wear them together a lot, and with red.

  10. I love black and white as a combo. I think it is very classy and clean.

  11. Black and white are a wonderful combination, if they flatter your coloring, but I’m pale with light brown hair and blue-gray eyes. I love the spectator look, so my go-to colors are navy and white.
