The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
The first couple of years I started style blogging for recessionistas, I abandoned my signature black clothing. I thought I’d get kicked out of the style blogger club if I didn’t flash color regularly. I did learn to love me some color, but deep down inside, I missed the classic ease of my black clothes.
I even donated one of my long time wardrobe basics, a black turtleneck shirt, to the Goodwill.
But then last year, on one of my infrequent trips to Target, I surreptitiously dropped a new black turtleneck into my shopping cart. I mean I paid for it an’ all, but it felt a little like shoplifting. I put it in the back of my closet, and then ignored it, fearing my readers would find it to be a huge yawn if I wore it on the blog.
However, an opportunity to have dinner with some besties arose last night. After three months of living on a bone marrow transplant unit, that black turtleneck suddenly looked desirable, beautiful, and well, honest. I love black clothes, I truly do.
Besides, black is an awesome backdrop for The Bling.
