Black Out (Day 1)

This is the first day of my "don't wear black all week so people don't think I am depressed or wonder if I see dead people" challenge. I think most people wear black because of the whole "black makes you look slimmer" theory. As you can tell from the pile of clothes on the floor in the above picture...I just didn't have the juice to take a picture. All I could think about was getting home to rip these clothes off my body and climbing in bed.
(I wore this jacket here and the shirt here and the heels here)
Actually, by the time I turned the corner on my block... I was already barefoot, the bra was already unbuckled and I was on my second shot of Petron.

Sleepy+ dealing with 145 different personalities under the age of 15 +paper work + a 2 hour meeting after work + an hour in traffic + no lunch all day = NO Picture today.

Let's see how I feel about this challenge by the end of the week. For some reason I picture myself at the end of the week rocking back and forth, crouched in the corner of my closet, swaddling all of my black articles of clothing, chanting "Kmart sucks" like Rain Man. (It should be obvious that I'm going through withdrawal:)


(P.S....just kidding about the Petron...I would never drink and drive:)
To avoid being Debbie Downer today, I must say that my mom surprised me with a Leather Fitted Blazer today. I can't wait to wear it:)

This is quite a challenge. I am giving you a shout out on my new post about this challenge with a link. This is not so easy my friend. My entire wardrobe is black. It is totally making me think...WHY? LOVE IT!!!

FYI...I would love to adopt you. We will have to plan a little closet swap party.

The nice thing about black, is it always matches. With colors you have to worry about having just the right shade, but that's never a problem with black. That said, I do love my bright colors!

Love those colors! Fuschia is always my color of choice when I want to break away from neutrals for a while. Pink and gray is a great combination.

GFS, you are SO funny, I love to read your blog (and your comments on mine)! As a fellow black addict, I understand the need to put your hands in the air and step away from the black clothes. I'm guessing you will find it fun and challenging! I love the colors you selected for the first outfit, keep up the good work!

From what I know of you and from what I can see here, you look great!!! I love the blazer!
