Black and White and Pretty All Over

Wednesday, December 18, 2013 29 0







All pieces thanks to White House | Black Market!  Beaded Jacket (available in stores – love this striped version), Embellished Top, Taffeta Skirt (available in stores but love this black and white checked skirt too), Bow Belt, Pearl Bracelet (available in stores but really love this one too).


What’s Black and White and Pretty All Over?  Well, this outfit of course.  White House | Black Market opened their first Canadian store in October, and let me tell you, I was beyond excited.  Both my Mom and I have been WH | BM shoppers for years.  When they contacted me a few week ago to style an outfit from their store, I jumped at the opportunity.


I spent well over an hour in their store, trying on pretty much every piece in my size.  It was so hard to narrow down my favorite outfit, but I finally decided on these gorgeous pieces above. This outfit feels girly, fun and perfectly me.


Now, I don’t know if you all know this about me, but I’m a shopper.  I spend more than my fair share of time in stores and malls.  I can honestly say that the boutique Associates at WH | BM were so beyond friendly (and patient!), and totally exceeded my expectations.  It’s just so nice to receive amazing customer service.  I was shopping at their new Square One store, but WH | BM is also open at Yorkdale and Upper Canada Mall (all in the Greater Toronto Area).


I pulled this blurb from the WH | BM website because I thought it was so beautifully written and really summarizes what their brand represents:  “Our passion at WH | BM has always been to make women feel beautiful.  That’s what we are all about.  Our clothing is a symbol of who we are:  the honest simplicity of black and white, and the remarkable individuality of the different styles we create from it.  We want our customer to feel that every place she goes is more beautiful…simply because she is there.” Now, how fabulous is that?!









Please note this is a sponsored post, however all opinions and thoughts are my own.  I only work with brands that I truly believe in, and that perfectly represent my style.

    LOVE this whole outfit! I think the blazer is my favourite but it’s very “me”. That skirt is so pretty too though – I’m so used to wearing pencil skirts all the time I think that skirt might convert me!
