Ever since I was a child, I would see my grandma decked out in black from head to toe. It didn’t matter the occasion; this woman only ever wore this color.
I would endlessly make fun of her all throughout my childhood, and she would laugh back at me and tell me one day I’d “get it.”
I thought she was crazy; how boring is it to just wear one “color” for your entire life? But as soon as puberty hit and those bagels I ate every day caught up with me, I understood.
There really is nothing as slimming and flattering as black.
So now, the roles are reversed as my grandma taunts me with “I told you so,” and I buy a different variation of the same black top on a weekly basis. But you know what?!
You live, and you learn, and the karma is being thrust upon me as each one of my friends relentlessly mocks me for my attire.
But I don’t really give a sh*t what anyone has to say because I will continue to indulge my all-black wardrobe collection with pride.
So why is it I, along with a good portion of you guys, just can’t stop wearing all-black everything?
