There’s so many myths about wearing black. Like you can only wear all black to a funeral. I grew up hearing this. If I wore all black some of my friends and other adults would feel a need to come up to me and ask, “why are you wearing all black, you look like you are on your way to a funeral.” So that caused me to develop an insecurity around some of my fashion choices. Another myth we hear is that wearing black makes you look like you work at retail store like Dillards or Zara. Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with working at retail stores at all. Hey, I’ve done it. I’m just saying that wearing all black does not automatically stick you that box.
Some of you may have heard that wearing black is slimming. This I do believe. There’s something about wearing all black that makes you look more sleek or streamline. It just hides our flaws. If I’m honest with y’all I have my share of flaws and insecurities. And I like to hide them any way possible. If I am vulnerable for a second, I’m insecure about my feet. I don’t like them and I hide them anyway I can. I know its seems like a non trivial thing thats super small. However, to me its a big deal. For a long time I’ve hide behind socks, or closed footwear. It’s crazy how one little thing like that can make you go into a rabbit hole somewhere and make you feel as though you are damaged goods. I know that may be extreme but we can become so wrapped up in our flaws that we miss or ignore the many good things about us.
But we have to ask ourselves, how does God see us?
He Created us
He Chose us
“You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.” – John 15:16 NLT
He Called us
And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger.” – Hebrews 3:1
God’s view of us is one of a perfect father with arms wide open and ready to welcome us into a close, loving relationship with him. He sees you in the same light as he sees Jesus.
But lets go back to the style. I love these black lace up leather shoes that are paired with this outfit. These shoes can double as a casual or formal look. Here’s a pro tip, buy pieces that a versatile. Pieces that can be flipped to give different looks. The brown soles on this shoe just adds class to these Steve Madden oxfords. I love kicks but having nice pairs of shoes are a must.
Another key element of this Fit is the black knitted long line sweater with chrome zippers on the side. Ya’ll know how much I’m a stickler on DETAILS. I know i say that all the time but I’ll probably mention it again. Just sayin…Can we talk about these acid black distressed skinny jeans with knee rips? Rips it & Rip it Good! So debunk all those myths and pretenses you may have heard about the Black on Black look. Go out and rock the look and rock it often!
Can you tell that I’m really excited about this look? I hope you are as well.
