I was always told there were two rules about wearing black:
1. Don't wear it with blue.
2. Don't wear it with brown.
Oprah's stylist recently announced that it's okay to wear blue shoes with a black dress and now I'm announcing that it's okay to wear brown anything with black everything.
(Because, you know, I have as much pull and influence as Oprah and her team of two thousand.)
I don't know if you remember, but I wore this dress last Thanksgiving when Mr. Branflake and I went on our getaway to Monterey and had a fancy schmancy dinner at a restaurant where I still won't tell him how much it cost (it was a surprise gift from me. Go here and here to read all about it).
This time I added the black tulle slip, the black sash, and the black booties.
I forgot, though, the gold diamond cuff, my wedding ring, and a statement necklace to add a little more zing to the outfit. We were in a hurry and were losing light so I kind of just forgot about accessories all together.
But you get the idea: brown and black is okay. (I hope)
What are your feelings about brown and black?
Brown and blue?
