If you were to look in my closet you would see a whole lot of black. With splatters of grey and beige and navy. A few sprinkles of white, green and blue.
But overall - very monochromatic, dull, black colours.
Every time I wear something with even a bit of colour in it, everyone compliments me and tells me how it brings out my eyes, how great I look that day, even how "happy" I look.
It's amazing what a bit of colour can do for you. I feel prouder, stand taller and smile bigger.
I always thought black would deflect attention from my size. Black is slimming, isn't that what they say? But I think wearing black hides all of me, not just my size. It hides my eyes, my smile, not only do I physically fade into the background, but mentally as well.
Lately I've been trying to bring colour into my life, and no longer hide in the background.
(I apologize in advanced for the dorky pictures)
And more importantly? How *I* feel!
