Women Who Wear Black Lead Colourful Lives

blog2 blog3 blog1
I heard this quote last week and it made me smile. I wear a lot of black. To people in fashion - it's normal - heck, Kelly Cutrone swears by the shade. Yet to those who don't, they think my style quite dark and almost gothic. Contrary to popular belief I do wear colour, just not as much as I wear black.

Black goes with more. Black's a timeless colour - it never ages or goes off trend and you can easily dress it up or down. I could list a hundred more reasons why I love black but I think you get the picture. I saw this dress on EBay a few weeks ago. It was black - tick. It had a collar - tick. And it was inspired by a Victoria Beckham dress - tick, tick.
I rarely shop on EBay but for this dress I made an exception. It's a lovely dress which is smart enough to wear for work but can also be dressed up for a cocktail or two. I added my favourite ever pink lipstick to the look to inject a little colour pop.

It's a Rimmel shade called 'Shocking Pink' and not only do I love the shade, it's moisturising for your lips and smells divine. I'm not sure if Rimmel makes it in this shade anymore but I hope they do, as once I run out of this one, lord knows what I'll do - as it's practically the only element of pink I'll let into my life.
