Black is the new... Black.

I've lived in New York for over 8 years now... and I feel as if I've come full circle.

When I first moved here, I wore a lot of black. A lot. Then, I was kind of over it. It seemed cliche and overdone, and I moved on to brown. I liked brown before it was cool to like brown (no, seriously). I've always been a big fan of grey, and dabbled in navy blue recently as well. There have been other color jags as well... I remember an orange phase, and I'm currently trying to clear my wardrobe of all the camouflage I own. It's just too common now.

So this winter, I realized something weird. I had NO BLACK BOOTS OR SHOES. Seriously. Who doesn't own a pair of black church shoes? I don't. I have camel, brown, pewter, gold, WHITE... but no black. Then I got tired of my navy blue coat, and went on the hunt for a black down jacket. Suddenly I'm back into black with a vengeance.

I still haven't bought any black church shoes, but I recently invested in a pair of black flip flops from Old Navy for the bargain price of $2.50. Yesterday when it was 70 degrees outside I took them for a test drive and loved every minute of wearing them. Now I think I need a black hoodie for spring. I'm thinking I'll get one from American Apparel, but I'm open to other ideas. Anyone got any other good hoodie stores? Is anyone else as into black as I am, now that it's spring?!

I agree about the camo, I was never able to find the right tone of camo (too bright or too olive etc) for zane and now it gives me a headache to see it.

I love this late 80s/ early 90's plaid shorts for boys (totally unrelated topic). it reminds me of every single lead singer I adored from every 90s band. and the boys who went to their concerts that were too old to notice me. whoa this comment turned into a teenage crisis!

I am so glad to hear that you bought some flip flops. Isn't this your first pair????
