Black and white is not a colour combination that I wear often. However when I was searching for a photo for this theme, I found a lot more black and white then I thought I had! I guess the disliking is in my head, hidden somewhere. Lets take a look at how these gorgeous women wear black and white.
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Black and white!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
My black and white houndstooth wrap isn’t really a good buy because it was a gift from my mother-in-law last Christmas. But it definitely fits the definition of a great gift! I wear it all the time when the winter chill sets in. I throw it on over my loungewear at home and it’s like being wrapped in a giant blanket of love!
Joanne of My Slices of Life
I included 2 photos of Lesley(te other one is on Shelbee’s blog) for this fun because she wears a lot black and white. The black and white tunic is a good bye item because it was a tad tight for her liking!!
Mireille of Chez Mireille
I love vintage fairs for finding distinctive accessories, often for far less money than you might pay for them new. This bangle is probably from the 60s or 70s, as it is actually cut Lucite – meaning, it’s not cast in a mold like cheaper plastic jewelry. It’s strung on very thick elastic (two rows) and is a snug fit on my small wrists.
Marsha of Marsha in the Middle
Stella Carakasi designs perfect, stylish garments for women, smashing the notion that we must be a certain size to feel comfortable or look fabulous in what we choose to wear.
October’s theme will be, how can it be any other theme then: Halloween!
Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to email@example.com or to firstname.lastname@example.org
And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

Nancy, another fabulous installment of the Good Buy/Good Bye series. So many great looks. Thank you for the honor of being in your feature collage and a huge thanks to both you and Shelbee for offering bloggers the opportunity to show their styles and creativity.
Oh those are very kind words Rena! It’s our pleasure!
Fun theme – I wish I could get my act together and participate! It’s good to see so many pieces – black and white is such a staple and classic combo.
Oh that would be so lovely if you could join us Kellyann!
Love the classic palette of black and white! I adore the dress and leggings combo too. Amazing looks here Nancy!
Thank you very much Kathrine!
There are so many fabulous black and white looks here! I love Laura’s little white dress with black accents so much! Looking forward to all the Halloween things coming next!
Me too! I love Halloween!
Oops, I totally forgot. Blame the holiday!
I don’t often wear black and white either, although you rightly pointed out I was wearing black and white in my previous post 🙂
I’m loving your outfit. The dress is very cute, and just perfect worn over those patent leggings! xxx
Thank you very much! I hope to see you in a Halloween outfit!
Wow so many wonderful looks! ?
Ooh, some new looks over here! I love all of these – and I’m so honoured to be amongst such creative fellow bloggers/IGers. I love how different everyone is!
Hallowe’en, but so early! I’ll have to do an “inspired by” Hallowe’en look!
Thanks for joining us! I know you will have a fabulous Halloween look!
SO many fun takes on black and white!
And thank you so much for participating!
I just love seeing everyone’s options!!!
Thanks Jodie! It was a theme after my heart, lots of black! Lol.
All of you ladies looking gorgeous in black and white!
Loved this post, Nancy! Black and white pair so well together. All of the styles were so different, yet still lovely!
Thank you very much love!
I love these posts! I’d intended to send each of you a photo, but moving got in the way. Sigh. I love that dress! Great post!
Well, our next theme is Halloween! You have horror now at your home! LOl.
