“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”


― Coco ChanelChanel





Whether your style is called emo, goth, or super chic, wearing black certainly communicates many messages.  I have listened to stylists tell women of a certain age to wear it often…and I have listened to stylists tell us it is too harsh for our complexions, so go navy for a softer look.

No matter who says it, I have trouble avoiding black!  I have always preferred it in my wardrobe. I go straight to black garments upon entering any store.   In the last ten years, I have attempted to weed it out of my closet after listening to those who say it is harsh, dark and depressing.  But, the truth is, BLACK IS ME.  I love to wear black pieces.  I wear them often and they send the messages I desire to send with my style….none of which are gloomy, or psychotic.   I still wear color and love color, but I have decided to just accept my attraction to black as who I am and enjoy it!

I was so pleased when I entered SAKS FIFTH AVENUE last week to be met with a store full of mannequins in super chic black styles!  Of course, I just had to share them with you…

So, how do you feel about this controversial neutral?  Do you wear it or avoid it?  Slimming or not?  Harsh or not?

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
