Back 2 Black

Door Tiany op 10.07.2014

True, I’m a color lovin’ lady, but this Dodo Bar Or black leather ensemble had me drooling from the minute I caught sight of it. The amounts of compliments that succeeded from my black leather adventures were numerous and have me totally puzzled now. As in: should I go back to my alternative roots, the days my wardrobe consisted of only solid black colors and thus convert to black?

By the way keep an eye on Israeli designer Dodo Bar Or who creates the most amazing timeless and edgy pieces in textures as leather and silk… What I’ve seen is mind-boggling and totally covetable.

Now that I’ve grown so comfy with truckloads of colors and prints, I seem to also have found a certain attraction in the purity of blacks and whites. Minimalistic, clean silhouettes suddenly seem very appealing and make a wardrobe so much easier to manage. Black transcends so many seasons and appears to make packing a whole lot easier to handle…. It comes in a divine range of perfect wardrobe staples and I’ve learned that a mix of textures in black hues often results in pretty amazing silhouettes. I can think of many advantages that come with black and have to admit that I’ve lately indulged into a couple of amazing total black items, that I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to wear many seasons to come….  

I’ve also always admired the likes of Style Heroine, Afterdrk, Anna Nooshin and Oracle Fox Blog … these ladies manage to constantly look immaculately pretty in their 50 shades of black. Respect for that!
