I'm a massive fan of all black outfits and always have been (as a consequence I used to get called an Emo or a Goth a LOT at school) but I don't think it really matches my sunny disposition. I feel safe in black, almost like a little warm shield around me protecting me from bad thoughts. But the Emo and Goth comparison stops there.
I think a comedian- probably Jack Dee- said that the way you tell them apart is that Emos want to kill themselves and Goths want to kill everyone else. A gross misrepresentation. But let it be known that I am quite the optimist. In fact im possibly the luckiest person in the world.
I am fully aware of every negative thing happening around me- and have had more than my fair share of bad karma this year (which I don't like to share- I don't want to bring anyone down but anything that can go wrong has gone wrong this year). Whenever anything bad seems to happen I shrug it off remembering my tattoo and just "forget about today until tomorrow".
I try my up most hardest to see the positive and beauty wherever I go and (even more so) pass it on to others. If I read a blogger post/ tweet/ facebook status I really do care!
But I still go for black over any/every other colour. Don't Judge Me!
This is a cosy casual look that I wore after work to pop to Tesco.

Well not a completely black outfit- I've included these pumps my sister bought me fir Christmas. I love a bit of leopard print (maybe its my spirit animal?) and when I spotted these I HAD to have them- and my sister was kind enough to give them to me fir Christmas. There from a shop in Westfield Shopping Centre at Stratford and I can't find them online anywhere. But I have found some amazing alternatives.
The first are from Topshop and a variation on the pumps everyone and their gran (other than me)- studded Vectras. The second pair are from Missguided and have the little buckle on the front like mine do (my favourite bit), the third from Boohoo look the closest in shape to my pumps and have a really cool nautical robe detail. But out of all the variation I love mine the best- so if you get the chance get down to Stratford.
