The colour of a nation...



“You want to be taken seriously, stop dressing like a little girl”. 
~Joan Holloway

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Gok Wan Style Tour in Westfield St Lukes.
When questioning the audience about what they struggled with when it came to personal style, many people responded with "I wear to much black".
After about the third person said this, Gok asked the crowd "What is with you New Zealanders, do you only ever where black?".
The crowd that had gathered in the mall all shouted back YES!
Us New Zealanders wear way to much black and we know it.
But maybe black is just every ones 'go to colour'? It certainly was mine today when I was stuck deciding what to wear...
I wore my favourite black skirt and styled it with metallic accents, like my new silver cuffs and second hand top. 









Skirt: Atrium on Elliot
Top: Savemart ;)
Belt: Gift
Cuffs: Diva
Shoes: Number 1 Shoes

Whats your favourite colour to wear?

  9. Black's a very Melbournian colour too, I've see people wear 3 different shades of black in the one outfit. Love your blazer and skirt combo.
