I don’t often wear all black and even when I do, I still end up adding colour – whether its colourful shoes or a scarf. I tend not to wear black any more because when I was THAT fat girl – the sad, unconfident, wallflower one – all I wore was black. Now I find when I do wear black, I tend to feel like that girl again. However on Sunday, I felt like wearing something shapeless and black. We went for lunch at a friends’ house in Reading and for most of the day it was wet and miserable. Therefore black seemed the correct colour to wear!
However, looking back at the pictures, I don’t really like the outfit. It’s not me and I felt frumpy and self conscious all day. I think it was more to do with the association of the colours than the actually outfit. I’m really glad I added the jacket and the scarf to brighten it up!
I have certainly seen the appeal with having a denim jacket – I love the one Gina sent me! I also wore my hair in a different way – less Vulcan like. It’s good to have short hair that can be worn different ways.
