I haven’t worn an all black outfit in absolutely ages. In fact I have consciously been shying away from wearing black, after wearing it constantly for so long. I fell out of love with it.
Today though I was riffling through my wardrobe looking for something cool to wear to the office when I came across a black dress that had escaped the great purge of January 2013. Rather than throw it into the donations bag that I am currently collating, I decided to try it on.
My love of black was reignited.
It made me remember that black can look great. It doesn’t have to be depressing and used as a way to cover up and hide yourself. This dress certainly doesn’t cover up much of anything on me being sleeveless and with the low neckline!
I had forgotten the power of a little black dress.
It is probably a little too revealing in the chest area for the office and indeed when I tried it on my first thought was “Vicky, your breasts look too big in this dress”. Then I remembered that my breasts are not going to shrink, they are what they are. It’s a boiling hot day and I want something cool to wear so I’m wearing it. Screw it.
So here are a few photographs of me in the dress and I feel great in it, fat arms out and all.
The dress is an old collection from So Fabulous at +Very.co.uk
Hope you are enjoying the sunshine!
