Psychologists will tell you that people like me who prefer to wear black are people who like to create a barrier between themselves and the outside world. By revealing the bare minimum about myself I can protect my emotions, my feelings and my vulnerabilities.
So this week when I read Fox in Flats’ latest fashion challenge, I could feel my usual mask of confidence slipping.
So how did I deal with Day 1? By adding colour onto a black background. Baby steps people, baby steps
The only way that I feel comfortable with a lot of colour is if that colour is enscapsulated in leather.
The other fabric that holds colour well is silk – this mini skirt is literally so mini that you need to wear the kind of tights that some people of my acquaintance would object to.
Coloured shoe are a bit more difficult. My idea of colour in shoes is – red.
These are the Dangerous Shoes. Luckily I was not the person doing dangerous things therein.
Since Day 1 (Monday 17 October 2011) I have managed to gird up my colour loins somewhat.
Main Colours Worn: Turquoise/Blue/Red
Tomorrow – my green grass and yellow ice cream ensemble…. To be continued.
