If you’ve followed my Photoblog then you know I’m not a fan of black on black outfits. They should be reserved for Ninjas, Navy Seals and bouncers. Everyone else should have color in their wardrobe. However that’s not to say I won’t make an exception. Today was such a day.
 
I saw an attractive lady but as she got closer I could tell she was impeccably dressed. I admired how the black of her jacket closely matched the black of her bandage dress. That’s impressive considering they were two different brands and most likely two different fabrics. It would have been far to easier for her to choose a black bag. But instead she chose a dark brown bag (possibly to match her hair color). Coincidental perhaps, but a nice touch just the same!
 
As we started chatting she said I could photograph her on the condition that I don’t show her face. I hope you enjoy her outfit as much as I did!

When we met in January, Alba’s first outfit had a completely different look. Today we ended up at the same cafe by coincidence. She was with friends so I smiled and waved goodbye as I was leaving. An hour later we met by chance a second time. We chatted for a bit and I took a few photos. She mentioned she had two more outfits and she asked if we could meet the next day. Here’s the results. Three looks in two days!
 
Any Stylist, Personal Shopper or fashion website will recommend you build your wardrobe with few quality yet versitile pieces. Alba gives the perfect example of how that can be accomplished.
 

Eclectic Casual
 
Her tailored blazer paired with a casual flow-y skirt was an interesting combination. Next her stockings exposed a little thigh and her croppped turtle neck blouse showed a bit of tummy. This was the first time I’ve seen a cropped turtle neck blouse!
     Elegant Evening
 
The same blazer when paired with an asymmetrical tank and skirt gives her appearance a completely different look. Notice how her pastel color bracelet and pastel color heels accent her outfit.
     Dressy Casual
 
The same asymmetrical tank blouse when worn with a one sleeve lace blouse has a much softer look. Incidentally, the quote on her scarf reads, “Live free with strong will.” – Comme des Garcons
