I don't know about you but I've got a few sides to my personality.  There's the work me, the girl who uses words like 'yes' and 'fantastic' and 'absolutely'. There's the mom version of me, who has to play the heavy to make sure we don't spend all day watching Bubble Guppies but then uses stupid voices and sings ridiculous songs to entertain.  Then there's the 'me' with  my best friends who usually ends up on the floor from laughing so hard, especially after a few glasses of wine.  We've all got our different sides, both dark and light, good and bad, and though I usually try to be good, it's sometimes fun to get into a healthy amount of trouble, too.

For Spring '13, designers played up the contrast, sending models down the runways of Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Jil Sander in graphic black & white looks.  It brings to mind the Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton era when everyone was mad for mod.  The new way to wear it? Stick with clean silhouettes and graphic prints (ie. bold black & white stripes, polka-dots and checks) and make sure to make a true statement by keeping it black & white from head to toe (including your bag, por favor). Feel like you need a bit of colour? Go for a bright and matte red or hot pink lip.  Mwah!

For those days when you can't decide which of your personalities to bust out, I can't think of a better way to dress...
