You may have noticed that black and white is one of my favorite color combinations.
When building a capsule wardrobe, it is very important to start with three colors that work together. I have also always enjoyed wearing either white or black with each other or with red, royal blue or turquoise. Fortunately, all these colors work together so I can build many looks from the individual pieces I own in any of those colors.
The jewelry and wardrobe pieces are all from Chico's. The statement necklace has many textural elements so that meant the cuff needed to be smooth and sleek in contrast. I also skipped the earrings tonight because of the minimal design of the jacket.
The shoes which are black tone on tone pattern are by Nine West. The bag is from T.J.Maxx.

We took our friends Sandy and Rick to dinner at Artisanal, our favorite restaurant in the world last evening.
I had the squash blossom appetizer and the halibut entree. You eat first with your eyes.
Doesn't Sandy have a sweet smile?
Rick is the leader of our Wine Club so naturally we had to take them down to tour the extensive collection in Artisanal's wine room.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening of great conversation, fine food and wine in a beautiful environment. We tried a Spätlese for the first time tonight. Spätlese (literal meaning: "late harvest") is a German wine term for a wine from fully ripe grapes, the lightest of the late harvest wines.I highly recommend it!
