Do you wear a specific colour when you're feeling under the weather? A colour that cheers and comforts you? I remember reading in Anaïs Nin's journals, oh so long ago, that she wore her "costumes" of black and red as a kind of barrier between herself and the world.
When I am feeling less-than-great, I definitely turn to black. Yesterday was one of those days where you're feeling a little low and just want to curl up and drink tea and ignore everything outside your own windows. Luckily I have lovely friends who coaxed me out of my house to attend a party. I wore this:
And I did end up having a really sweet time, even if I went to bed at the early hour of twelve, which made me feel positively old.
I'm wearing (the photo is lightened to show some detail):
• Black 'MinkPink' shaggy vest.
• Black 1930's rayon teddy, my new favourite thing.
• Black stirrup leggings.
• Black vintage boots, stained with paint.
