Dueling Personalities

Paris has done a thorough job reminding me that there are infinite ways you can look like a total badass when dressed in black. I was thinking I was over it but clearly it's impossible to truly tire of. Color? Psht. Black is the cooooolest.

But then...oh DAMN. What Dries Van Noten did with color was absolutely genius. Pop pop pop with some neutrals thrown in. Perfect. Achieving this sort of comfort level with brights and pastels has now moved up to position number one on my to-do list.

Black will always look great, but we should give color a chance:)

Every night I got to bed I tell myself I'm not going to wear black the next day...and then I wear black. Dries killed it, I love the first look and can't wait to interpret it on my own.
