Licorice and Clotted Cream

L&CC: An unlikely culinary pair, but a wonderful color combination! Ever so much more chic than basic B&W, in CC’s humble estimation!

I have never tried the taste or sartorial combination. You make it look so delicious that I might try it. I am usually more of a red vine kind of gal.;-)

Fantastic Ernesto Esposito sandals!

THE HOUSE OF STYLE said...

Delicious post title Carrie!Those colours work so well together!You would not think they'd compliment each other but they really do.The dresses you featured are fabu! They be wonderful for a cocktail event or so with some cake and clotted cream ;o)
The lightning bolt booties are terrific too,they remind me of a pair of similar booties my cousin had in the late eighties/early nineties. How i wanted them!
Oh darling I hope that your sister gets a pair or two from topshop's tall section that work.over here in UK it is my only choice for 36inch seams which does it get super boring sometimes.
muah xx

Nice! I really like this look. I'm not quite sure that it is "clotted cream and liquorice" but it's a nice image.
I want those Betsey Johnson Reese bow pumps. So cute!

Songy said...
