Adding Colour to my Closet.

For the better part of the past two years, I have been slowly removing colour from my closet. “Why on earth?” you might ask. I had never really taken the time to identify what colours actually really worked well on me, and what really didn’t suit me.

A Week of Black Outfits in the Summer.

This past week, of all weeks, with soaring summer temperatures, I decided to experiment with wearing something black on my person every day.
