White and Black Wednesday





















Happy White (and in my case, black) Wednesday. This day is put on by Faded Charm and it is too much fun. Go to her site and see lots of other participants. I love doing this because I love the inspiration that comes to me when I'm focusing on a certain thing. In this case, white.

I took a good friend out for her birthday. We wanted to go to the University Mall where a particular store was. We get there and find out that the store has closed, Bummer. So we decide to walk the mall. My friend ask me if I wanted to go into the clothing store called White/Black. I haven't shopped for nice cloths for so long, I had no idea. The wheals were starting to chern, I've been sewing in black and white now for the last two weeks. So I'm thinking, hea, White Wednesday, it might be perfect.

Well, was I in for a treat. What a fantastic store. Can I say I loved it. I haven't been modivated by clothing for 23 years. I use to wear things like this. I use to design this style in my head and wonder why nobody had a store like this. Wow, life and I don't get along very well in the physical department right now. I've got some life style changing that's going to take place.

But -- I want to be able to shop in that store. I'm looking at these 2 very well dressed women behind the counter and I ask, can I take pictures. I'm thinking, all I can do is have pictures around me of how I use to look.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you these beautiful pieces of White/Black design.

  1. wow, love the black and white shop...next time I hit Salt Lake that will be on my list, what a fun experience so glad they let you show and tell their place. How else would we know if we don't get away from our own little nests?

    thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. the song you "heard" is from a drama from korean. if you want to hear it without the pauses you told about, it's now the first song on my playlist on the top end of the sidebar. hope you can hear it now without problems.

  4. I've never heard of the Black and White Shop but I loved seeing it. Everything you've shown us is gorgeous. I love black and white clothes and jewelry. I think most women probably do! Great post, Cindy!

  6. Hi Cindy,
    I only wear black and white! I just posted my White Wednesday too, I am a little bit late. I am sorry you can't follow my blog, I don't know you are the first to have this problem. A week ago I lost all my followers and then they were back. Maybe try again? CIAO

  13. now why didn't I think of black and white? Maybe next week. I have been a BAD White Wednesday blogger :-( business is great but no time for computers. Nutella dear, is the best chocolate hazelnut spread EVER. Look in your peanut butter or jam jelly section and grab yourself a Spoon!

  16. Hi Cindy, I just love this store. My daughter in St. Louis shops there almost exclusively, because it is so easy to put together outfits, And so many things can mix-and-match. She's a realtor and always on the go. Great post.

    I'm always so grateful for your visits and comments.

    re: pincushion- not sure what you are talking about> The white pumpkin??

    I can show you some other pics that may help you see better what they are? And they certainly would make perfect pincushions too. =))

  21. Truly cute. Love that University Mall. Too far away for me to get to very often. Where would you like to meet tomorrow? Do you want to come by my house? Or we could meet up at the Rock Loft in Fruit Heights. Or I need to go to Brenda's. You pick. You could call me if you want. 755 6503. Mimi
