No I’m not black and blue after the frenzy of Black Friday sales; however it got me thinking about a fashion myth that has always circulated: Wearing black and blue together is one of the ultimate faux pas. I have to disagree on every level. I love the combo, especially with the right accessories. Because the two colors are in similar families, the combination creates a neutral palette with a bit of contrast.

Although I usually end up in a food coma, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year. Foods that are usually foreign to my daily routine are a decadent and welcomed treat, leaves are still turning (in NC) and the shopping season has officially kicked off-Christmas lights and all. I can run with the best of the Black Friday purists-waking up at 6am, grabbing a cortado and heading to Saks or Nordstrom, but online shopping is also a very appealing and ever growing fabulous option for the crowd phobic shopper to bypass the sale induced frenzies that await outside and inside most stores the day after Thanksgiving. Below are some of my picks for partaking from the comfort of bed, Friday and throughout the weekend.

Black and white is such a no brainer for me, and when I came across this fantastic little shirt dress, I knew the possibilities were endless. Tattered denim and a pop of red pulled everything together.
