I Could Not Foresee This Thing Happening To You

BLACK.  The Alien over at Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections, known to some as Jasen, chose this week's awesome word. It was a sensible choice, given that yesterday was BLACK Friday. I choose not to participate in that particular annual ritual. The retailers will have to get into the BLACK without least for that one day.

This isn't to say that I'm not a fan of BLACK. I am. My little BLACK heart loves the deep beauty of BLACK. I can't think of a time I've chosen white over BLACK.   Here are a couple of photos to illustrate why I love BLACK.

I am not a tiny girl.  I'm on the short side...but not tiny. Also, I spill things on myself. So, even when I am not being a witch, I tend to wear a lot of BLACK. It compliments my dark hair and light skin. It hides a multitude of sins, sort of. BLACK is where it's at when it comes to my clothing choices.
Sometimes, the thing about BLACK is how pretty it looks contrasting with light and color. BLACK creates the depth from which beauty springs delightfully. BLACK helps us appreciate the non-BLACK...while still appreciating the BLACK! Stand back, y'all!
Thank you for looking into the darkness with me on this lovely Saturday. I hope none of you were injured BLACK Friday shopping! If you did participate, I hope you got what you needed to make our next big holiday happy and bright...I will take mine in BLACK :)  Now...who will Jasen tag next?

I didn't participate in Black Friday shopping either. I think a lot about the gifts I do buy and when I have been impulsive but it doesn't usually come off. Black hair hair, pale skin, black clothes: love it! My wife wears a lot of black, timelessly classic and always looks great.

I prefer wearing black instead of white, too. I have worn white before, and I look like I just blend into it like a blob. Not fo' me.

I love your photos. I don't participate in Black Friday either. I stay far away from the stores if I can help it.

AlienCG chose me for next week, so let's play with the word "craft".

FW: I really need to shop with very clear goals in mind...otherwise, yes, it can go terribly wrong.
I like thinking of black as timelessly classic, rather than a disguise :-D

Tara: If I wear anything white or even light I immediately put a big ugly spot on it somewhere :)
Love the new word! It is right up my alley...and yours too.

I don't do black Friday shopping, either. I think it brings out the ugly in people.

I love black clothing, but I've finally had to admit to myself that it makes me look washed out. So now I try to limit it to pants/skirts/boots and if it's a sweater, then have something colorful with it (like a camisole or scarf.)
