Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.
Why the black? Unfortunately, I do not have spiritual and profound reasons for wearing all black Johnny Cash in his song "The Man in Black."
And I definitely don't "Dress in black and read Camus, smoke cloves cigarettes and drink Vermouth, like I was seventeen" in the Magnetic Fields song. I'm not aiming to be the depressed/ tortured artist-hipster.
...nor do I dabble in goth or black-magic.
I just like to wear black! That's a part of why I love France. You can be head to toe in black all year long without needing a reason.
However, suddenly, my unflinching love for black is replaced with a desire for flowery prints and "milk shake" colors.
Yet, I fear for looking like one giant cupcake. (picture to the left from Fashematics.com)
