- “Women who wear black live colourful lives” – Neiman Marcus
Ain’t that the truth? I mean, it will be hard to say otherwise. Don’t get me wrong, I do have clothes that aren’t black. And I do wear them… occasionally.
Kidding aside, I think I got this obsession from my mama. I remember (and I hope I remember it correctly), that she would always wear black. Anytime, anywhere. Well who could blame her? It’s elegant without much effort and serious with a little bit of fun.
“Friends who slay together, stay together.”
Now let’s talk about this jumpsuit. I know it’s not the best idea to wear black in this heat (Dubai can reach up to 50°C and I’m not even kidding) but I swear the fabric is so light and breathable. I also love that it is versatile– I wore it with a shirt to the office then changed it into a cami for a dinner. The best thing? I only got it for 15 dirhams or about USD 4. Pretty good deal right? I told you I’m serious when I said you don’t need to spend so much on fashion. And that’s what I love about it.
I’m also into jumpsuits lately. One, because it’s a no-brainer. For someone who’s always in a hurry, you can just slide into them and still look good. Two, because it emphasizes my legs. Being “slightly” vertically challenged (I stand almost 160m), it gives the illusion of being tall. And lastly, you can wear any footwear you want! Havaianas? No problem!
And oh, I almost forgot, it also allows me to tip-toe without you noticing it. Lol. That’s a trade secret!
How about you? Do you also love black? Or you would rather wear this jumpsuit in another color?
