When there’s no more room for the grey area then only black and white will do. Be straightforward and cut to the chase in one of these seriously chic looks. For those of you who love a good deconstruction then this week’s window is for you. If you’re more into simpler lines then the centre ensemble may be more your cup of tea. And I think we all can agree that the mini Lady Dior cross body is divine.

For a night out in white might I suggest one of these 3 beauts? Now let’s just cut to the chase and gaze at that AMAZING cubic zirconia belt! I don’t know much about it other than it came out of an estate in Montreal. Perhaps Persian? Being cubic zirconias, that would date it to post 1960’s. She may just need to sprout some lips in order to tell us the rest of her story.
