the story of an evolving wardrobe colour aeshetic

Ever since I saw the Miu Miu fw collection of 2010 I was struck by an important revelation: black combined with bright colours, when done well, is really damn good. Almost Goddess-like, it’s is meant for heaven and hell descents and ascents. It’s is otherworldly good. But seemingly unattainable for me.


This is the collection that gave me a revelation, but I really want to research this important colour combo so please hit me up with some good colour + black fashion! I haven’t followed fashion intently in a long while.

It’s taken me a while to accept it and maybe I’ll never reach that level. But I have seen tiny spots of godly light by rocking my gifted Sonia Rykiel cow-printed velvet-y bomber jacket almost all winter wich naturally clashes with all the colours I usually wear. Clashes in a good way. You know me, I love clashing, I live for clashing. But I still haven’t found a way to implement black into several outfits.


An early first try, or a defining moment?

But really, that Minju Kim top has been putting me on my headed destiny. Those robot shoes too. My Marimekko dress, and a gifted striped sweater has shown me similar good uses of black. The fact that I worked for months with a strict all-black dresscode has been pushing me to the enlightened path. La Fille d’O showed me what a cute addition glimpses of one of my all-time favourite bras are. My super old black polka dotted bikini screamed to me when wearing see-through anything. Sadness pulled me to black lipstick and my only favourite black dress, which is a majestic traditonal Austrian children’s dress. I finally retrieved my perfect 70s leather jacket which was left behind in my parent’s house. And today, a collar I have been gifted by my patron saint and personal dresser combined with the amazing Swanclothing rosebud garters forced me into this.

I think it’s time.
