Outfit Proposal For Rainy Days #1 (How To Style a Black Skater Dress?)
When in doubt, wear black. In the past, I must have been doubt free for I hardly ever reached for black. I was all about colour. I used to abhor all black outfits, but now I'm warming up to them. Today my outfit proposal is almost all black with only touches of brown and grey. I opted for different shades of black, so this outfit isn't not completely monotone. I don't know if you can see it on the photographs, but this skater dress is made of similar material as the coat, that is, the material is very thick. I bought it in one outlet store and I plan to wear it this Spring as well. I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to wear this dress during the Summer because I would be too warm. I think it is the only skater dress I have in my closet. I do understand the appeal of having lots of little black dresses in one's closet, for they do come in handy, but I only have two or three in mine.

As I said, I was never crazy about black, but it seems that I'm slowly but surely changing my mind. Who knows, maybe in the future you'll see me wearing all black outfits all the time. I have dyed my hair black recently. My natural hair colour is very dark brown (almost black) so it is not a big change but still. How about you? Do you like black outfits? Do you like dark hair? My dream hair colour would look something like this acrylic painting you can see below. Dark blue. But somehow I think that would take both time and effort, so for now I'm sticking with basic black.

What about you? How have you been? I have spent all my morning and most of my afternoon painting and illustrating. That usually puts me in a bad mood or maybe it just makes me tired. I finally took the time to look at some fashion shows from the recent fashion shows. I don't illustrate runaway looks all the time, but sometimes I do. Maybe you remember some of my old runaway illustrations. Last year I illustrated quite a few runaway looks and for some reason I often choose to illustrate looks from D&G collections. Today I looked back to these two fashion paintings made with acrylic paints. Fashion illustrating with acrylic paints is not very common, at least I haven't see it around, but I like it. I feel like it makes the designs look more artistic so I sometimes do it. Not today, though. Today I choose to work only with watercolours. You'll need to wait to see those watercolours, though. They need to dry and everything.
