Callie's Picks Issue No.26 : The Art Of Contrast

I'm wearing : Black Wrap Blazer Dress, Callie's Picks/Windows on the World | Armor Dress, Fallen Angel | Cropped Black Trousers, Decades | Armor Top, Fallen Angel (for the sleeves cuffs) | White Showpiece Beret, Callie's Picks/Voile | Velvet Laces Boots, MSW '14 | Lumiere Clutch, Royalty * | House Arrest Cuff Left, Tingeling * ||

The theme of today's Callie's Picks is the old time classic black and white. In Callie's words : "Think about the queen of black and white elegance, mademoiselle Coco Chanel. She once said : Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony." And you can never doubt the words of Coco!
For me black and white is a statement, it's bold and powerful. I really can't write an objective review for this store, because I simply love the theme and I'm super happy that Stardoll took into consideration my suggestion :) (more on that here ). My picks are a whole lot, and many of the stuff I didn't include can also be easily incorporated in any outfit, one more advantage of black and white, the versatility.
Overall the store presentation is excellent and there is a male outfit as well which is a plus. There are a few starcoin items, mostly accessories. My "Must Have" of this collection is the "Black Wrap Blazer Dress", originally from Windows on the World. The price is a bit high but it's a strong piece that can be worn as a dress, as a coat or even as a top. I have styled it here, here and here. The collection also offers a good selection of accessories. The two hats, the "White Showpiece Beret" and the "Black Hat", were immediately added in my bag, but that's just me and my hat obsession. The "Stunning Falls Scarf" is another favourite piece of mine. I use it quite often whenever I want to add some movement to my outfit and it looks especially great combined with collared tops (styled here). My other picks are : the "Fishnet Dress", the "Inspired by De La Renta Jacket", the "Iman Black Top", the "Safety Strap Boots", the "Black Folds Belt" and the "White Two Pring Belt".

  1. I bought the Dalmatian. The rest, I either already own, or don't like. I like your use of the coat dress... which I already own.
