On The Outfit: Black dress, black undergarments, black hair. It's basic, it's simple, but it says so much by saying so little. This sheer little number is sexy but covered enough were it isn't slutty. I was in a real Carine Roitfeld mood which is why I chose this. The end of PFW made me miss all that there is to miss about Paris. My best friend is getting married in France soon and I think this little outfit will have to come with me for a dinner or something. Here in Venice, CA I kind of stick out like a sore thumb.
On My Mind: Wearing Black...
“I wore black because I liked it. I still do, and wearing it still means something to me. It's still my symbol of rebellion -- against a stagnant status quo, against our hypocritical houses of God, against people whose minds are closed to others' ideas.” - Johnny Cash
“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” - Coco Chanel
“Black is not sad. Bright colors 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'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color"
"Women who wear black lead colorful lives" - Neiman Marcus
