"Women in Black"

   Who doesn't love black? 

   Black makes you feel chic and sexy; makes you look thin and you can wear it anytime you wish and anywhere you go... You can "create" several outfits for day and night with Black, right?

  Yeah, there's something about "black" that makes us love it! Black is addictive!

   I think there is something bordering on the cultish in fashion’s devotion to the colour black.  I wear black most of the time, and therefore one upon which I have spent much time reflecting. My friends  might say I wear little else, though it doesn’t feel like that to me—I wear colours sometimes, particularly in summer, and I also love Burgundy  a lot, but black is what I feel most comfortable in. Putting on black in the morning feels as natural as breathing. If I enter a clothes shop, I am drawn towards the rails of black.I think  I've absorbed black osmotically, from magazines like Vogue.

   "Through black...light revealed"- said Coco Noir's advert.

   There are certainly a lot of practical reasons for choosing black. When I ask people why they wear it, the first response is usually “because it’s easy”. That seems to encompass several things. It doesn’t show the dirt. It doesn’t date. It goes with most colours, so it works as a good base to which other things can be added!

   This little black dress was designed by Givenchy to be worn by Audrey Hepburn in the opening of "Breakfast at Tiffany's"... Who haven't seen this film? This wonderful scene where Audrey was eating a croissant in front of Tiffany's? Yeah, we all fell in love with this dress from the very first time!

      The dress is cited as one of the most iconic items of clothing... Ahh...Breathtaking!

Christian Louboutin.

   Louboutin Black Leather high heels have not need any presentation. With red-lacquered soles they have become one of te most famoust shoes in the World! They are simple, yes, but its 8 cm will make you fell like a princess. They're just perfect, and I'd rather say, a must for women.

Chanel's Classic flap bag.

   The Chanel Classic Flap bag in black might be  the best sold of the timeless classic flap bags collection.  When I was in Paris, last Spring, and when I was looking for a particular handbag, the Chanel black color was almost sold out everywhere. It's a classic...So chic, so beautiful...so Coco Chanel!

    Despite its sleek, body-skimming proportions, the jacket allows for plenty of movement while retaining its impeccable form. How? By constructing the garment according to the grain of the fabric for maximum suppleness, and with sleeves that are cut with a slight bend so that it has a more ergonomic fit. Its signature three-quarter length sleeves also added to the slimming, slightly shrunken silhouette — while allowing the wearer to pile on plenty of Chanel bangles.

    I know, I love Audrey Hepburn a lot, but her style was simply perfect. Don't you love these sunglasses? Now considered a revolutionary moment in eyewear design, the Wayfarer quickly gained popularity among both the fringe and the well-heeled -- crossing socio-economic and cultural borders -- and appealing to a mass market that included debutantes and beatniks.
Ironically, the original Wayfarers were intended to be marketed to men ... until women fell in love with the sleek, shiny design that seemed to flatter any shape of face.
Soon the sunglasses began to turn up on everyone from Presidents and fashionable women to folk musicians and East Village Hipsters. Wayfarers were got a PR boost in when Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly practically lived in her Wayfarers in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany's.

   Need more convincing? Black is addictive!

Kiss, Kiss.
