I’ll stop wearing black
“Black is not sad. Bright colours are what depresses me. They’re so… empty. Black is poetic. How do you imagine a poet? In a bright yellow jacket? Probably not.” – Ann Demeulemeester
“I think black.” – Gareth Pugh
“I love black because it affirms, designs and styles. A woman in a black dress is a pencil stroke.” – Yves Saint Laurent
The quotes are from an old article on AnOther and from some of my favourites people. So no wonder I fell for this dress. Super simple shift dress with no sleeves. But then again – Phoebe Philo knows how to make a easy dress into something special – this one with a floral printed sash. The first floral print ever to be welcomed into my wardrobe. I bought the dress on sale at Storm – I had tried it on before but the price made me hang it back ( with tears in my eyes) – so happy to find it in my size 50% off.
