I love black because it affirms, designs and styles. A woman in a black dress is a pencil stroke. – Yves Saint Laurent
Dear my lovely ones, before I start I need to mention that I dedicate this post to your inner beauty.
Some people say that the color of our clothing is a reflection of our inner self. Do I agree with that statement? Yes, I definitely do. But here is the time to remind you of The Ugly Duckling story. I think it perfectly describes the message I want to deliver. The story goes about the baby duck, who is somehow different from the others. It is not accepted in any flocks, because the ducks consider it to be too ugly. Pressured by the mocking from the others, he needs to leave his family and live on its own. Being rejected from the outside world was harsh for it, but before it realizes, it grows into the most beautiful and gracious swan in the lake. On one level this fable illustrates that the true beauty grows from within. Regardless of the appearance of our physical being, we all possess an inner radiance which cannot be dimmed.
Since I am writing this post it is quite evident that I have an affinity to wear all black clothing and yes, it has a lot to do with my inner self. Everybody around me is asking why is it so and I think it is high time to reveal the mystery. So why I just can’t stop wearing all-black-everything?
1. WARDROBE EFFICIENCY
I do not have to waste an enormous amount of time to match the item I want to wear since I have endless combinations. In addition, the combination of statement item and all-black rest rocks.
2. I DO NOT BOTHER YOU – DO NOT BOTHER ME NEITHER.
Black clothing is my armor. It adds seriousness to my presence and I like it that way! It is kind of a warning that I am not a person to be f*cked with.
3. LAUNDRY IS EASY AND SAFE
Color catcher is not a product you will find in my laundry room. Colorful laundry happens rarely.
4. ALWAYS READY TO BE ADVENTUROUS
I can afford to be open to any adventure the day brings me. You will never see me running back home to change if a friend invites me to have some drinks in the city. It is hard or even impossible to look under- or overdressed in black clothing.
5. REPRESENTS CONFIDENCE & SELF-SUFFICIENCY
If you ask me how would I look like in 40 years, I would say that I would like to be one of those old ladies, who are wearing all-black-everything from head to toe. Do not forget about the high heels, black sunglasses, elegant twisted topknot hairstyle and smoking from an amber cigarette holder like in “Breakfast at Tiffany`s”.
6. OH YES, IT IS SLIMMING
Definitely, my favorite part! Black can make miracles with the 2 kilograms, that you gained during this Christmas. For some further kilogram coverage, I would recommend the gym subscription haha
7. I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON
Whether I have something important to do or not – I will be always late. One thing is sure, if I want to impress, reassure or woo you, I would wear black. And I can choose my outfit even with closed eyes.
8. I MAKE A STATEMENT
I can`t roll in some boring grey stuff, simply because my personality is either all-in or all-out.
9. I DO NOT NEED BRIGHT COLOURS TO STAND OUT
My strong preferences and sharp tongue stand out enough. The last thing I need is to drive some more attention to myself by wearing a neon outfit.
10. I DO NOT DRESS TO IMPRESS ANYONE EXCEPT ME
How does my outfit reflect on any aspect of your life? Exactly! It does not! That`s why you better do not expect me to exceed your pattern expectations.
