I'm starting a new job on Monday. It actually has a lot of great potential especially with my tight schedule and need for a steady paycheck. It requires black clothes. I've always LOVED black, always. In fact my metal-head friends from highschool used to call me a blacker (a name heavy metal fans were called in my highschool) even though the 'heaviest' music I was listening to at the time was Tori Amos and Fiona Apple. The blacker nickname was appearntly because I used to wear black often. However, now when I will be "forced" into black everyday, and even a little fancy black because it's a quite a fancy workplace, I find I don't have much black in my closet and this surprises me. Looking through my very long wishlist on Etsy, I can't find much black there either.
When did I become so color-drawn? Where have my angsty and heavy outfits gone to? My emotions are still the same (sometimes even blah-er) and yet I find reds and yellows and blues and patterns and all kinds of color blends, but not much black. And since I don't want to wear just any kind of black but want to blend in my own vintage and layer-loving touches, I'll need to work on my black inventory if this job works out, and I'm hoping it will.
In the meanwhile - some of the most fabulous and wearable black items on my wishlist: (clicking the item sends you to the items shop page)
