Today’s challenge is all about wearing the dominant color in my closet.

Another almost impossibility for me to discern because I’ve actually made a concentrated effort to have the color wheel equally represented in my closet. But, if I had to do an actual count, I’d say black is the most dominant color in my closet, followed neck-and-neck by white.

Yes, I understand that neither one is an actual color, but whaddaya gonna do?

Anyhow, since I’ve been doing a lot of all black ensembles and since I never was ever able to pull off the head-to-toe white look, I give you the dynamic duo in action.

I don’t know about you but when I think of a black and white pairing, I think either polka dots or herringbone or houndstooth. I guess we know what won out today.

This dress has all kinds of awesome going for it: a) a really bold, unmistakable houndstooth, b) that 60s mod/shift construction which we all know is super flattering on me, and c) a whopping ten-dollar price tag. What’s not to love?!

Because the pattern is already so in-your-face, I chose simple accessories to showcase it. I purposely threw on a fun boyfriend cardi and captoe flats to make the outfit more casual and more apropos for a Friday outfit, but I couldn’t resist the gold chain necklace and bangle because I guess I’m just a flamboyant fashionista at heart.
