Back to Black

I don't wear black very often and definitely not solid black (well, not since my brief Goth period), but as a background for a bold print, it works pretty well.

80s Bickler wrap blouse (£3.71 ebay), 70s printed skirt (£11.83 ebay), earrings (from Vix),
necklace (about £1, joblot from ebay), twist ring
(from Vix), turquoise stone ring (same as necklace)

Boots (£15 reduced from £98, Office sale)

How does black feature in your wardrobe?

O,hell,I love those boots!And that skirt!!!
I'm with you on black,I like it best as a background to a fab print nowadays.I reckon I overdid the black during my Goth days,and rarely go near it now,except for black shoes/boots!
Looking tres glam!
