Light up Black & White

The discussion with jibjab on how to make cutouts pieces look less loud makes me what to post this outfit I’ve almost forgotten. ;-) There are no cutcouts in this look, but the idea is quite the same. When there is a statement piece (the necklace here), I’d rather keep everything else simple.

BTW, If you are the type of person who prefer simple and modest clothes, bold accessories are always a good choice to add some visual interest.

    Such a bright yellow! Very eye catching.
    I have a small collection of necklaces, scarves, belts and other pieces but I always find myself in a hurry in the morning. Laying aside the potential outfit for next day never works for me as I change my mind every moment. ;)

    What a popping color! Love this jacket of yours, so simple that the signature necklace stands out nicely!
    I’ve been pairing a houndstooth coat with color too :)
    But I’m like streetwithnoname, always end up with the same necklace after I find myself spending too much time changing the outfit :(

    Thank you gals! :-)

    I don’t prepare for the potential outfit for next day either. What I usually do is check the weather first after waking up, then consider what to wear while taking a shower. It works like a charm, hehe~~ ;-)

    jibjab, houndstooth print with a pop of color is wonderful!

    The necklace and shoes really light up the whole outfit.
    The necklace is very elegant !

    Fruity米, the skirt is actually a dress from H&M. ^_*

    Hi Evan. I don’t think my write-up did justice to all the areas you coeevrd in your excellent presentation. I was introduced to you briefly by Dave Quesnelle, but didn’t grab a business card from you.My one complaint about the JibJab website is the lack of contact info. I’m assuming you have a back door of some sort for client contacts, but I don’t see any obvious way to email you. If you want to let me know how to reach you, my email is markmayerson(at)rogers(dot)com.Keep doing those presentations wherever you can. They’re genuinely valuable. I’ve had my share of frustrations with gatekeepers and I think that pop culture would be a lot more interesting if we managed to go around them.I don’t know if you’ve ever gone to the Ottawa Animation Festival, but it’s held annually in September. I think that your presentation would go over well there and if you like, I can put you in touch with Chris Robinson, who is the director of the festival.Best of luck on the projects you’re trying to launch.
