First Avenue Style #2: The Maxi skirt

September 29, 2013
Black. The color of darkness. The color of fear. The color that makes you envision something sinister and evil. A black heart, ruthless and unforgiving. Black magic, ominous and threatening. Black death, deadly and horrific. The Black wind, mysterious and possessing.Black. The color of a freshly wiped black board on a new school day. A black stallion, powerful and majestic. Long black hair, smooth, shiny and beautiful. Black diamonds, rare, exquisite and expensive. Black night sky, velvety and mesmerizing. A sleek black car, empowering and classic. A little black dress, elegant and graceful.

Black, the paradox color. The color of evil and pride. The color of rejection and resourcefulness.
Blackmail. Black-belt
Black sheep. Black coffee.

The color of power, of control. The color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown. The barrier, hiding feelings, building walls, shrouding everything that it surrounds that it all seems to vanish into shadows. Black, authoritative and uptight. The color of self-control and confidence. The color of independence and strong will. Black, conventional and conservative; sophisticated and dignified. Black, the intriguing temptress.

Black the end. The end becomes a beginning. Black, a new beginning.

One color. Two sides. The good, the bad. So the same applies to people, yes?

I’ve been wanting a blue maxi skirt for so long but as always, all my attempts at searching for one proved to be futile. It was never the right shade or the right price so I decided to just make one myself and get it over with! And I absolutely love the result! A word of caution about these shoes. I love them, the color, the design, everything but it has the most uncomfortably designed strap. It could be that its just this piece that is faulty or maybe this design. This is just my second wear and with every five steps that I take (literally exactly five steps), it snaps off and I need to stop and buckle it again. Extremely annoying to do that. And the strap has already started fraying at the edges. Another couple of wears and I can see it coming off completely. So a word of caution for anyone wanting to purchase these. Like I said the design is really bad so I’ll probably get it changed to a regular old buckle because other than that they are super comfy and cute. Done by None has really some really trendy and innovative designs but definitely need to improve on their quality!

    This aqua blue maxi skirt is lovely on you along with the flat sandals. Your face and hair are also lovely. Lot of love for this outfit- just like all the hearts on your shirt.

    Beautiful writing, beautiful outfit! I like how the pleating on the maxi skirt makes it drape wonderfully. 🙂

    Absolutely love the blue 🙂

    The top is splendid, from where?? :O … Black is my color, the only color I splurge on. Black is my power, my strength, my anger, my solace.
