“You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it for almost any occasion” said Christian Dior.
Personally, I have a conflictual relationship with black.
On the one hand I think it is a way too easy choice, on the other hand I can’t help loving and wearing it.
Black is great when you don’t wear it everyday, it should be an exception, a surprise.
What is sure is that it doesn’t have to be boring.
We’ve made a shopping selection to demonstrate you that black could really be the happiest color.
It’s almost Halloween, anyway.
