Once you go black …

MomZombie got a day pass today.
All day away. With money. Whoo-hoo, as the happy people say.
Visited the rock star hair salon for touch up, walked out kinda blond. I have two days to decide whether to keep such a high-maintenance ‘do, or go back to my dark brown with warm streaks of red and amber.
Had lunch alone. Sounds depressing but it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do this. It was nice.
Went shopping for fall/winter clothes. There is never enough money or time to find clothes. I desperately need to be on “What Not to Wear.” I want the $5,000 New York shopping trip with a clothes coach.
Nominate me. Here’s why:  I wear almost all black clothes. Oh, on wild days I wear brown, or olive green or gray. Most of my almost all black clothes are old, faded, frayed and mostly frumpy. I always intend to have a cool wardrobe of hip clothes.
But I yo-yo diet. So, if I get a collection of good stuff, I gain weight and it sits in the closet going out of style. Then I’m fat and depressed so I buy a whole bunch of cheap crap at those big-box cookie cutter stores and wear the hell out of it all until I lose the weight. Then it’s a slow-go getting back to a nice wardrobe again.
I got crazy a couple years ago and purchased an array of colors: bright oranges and juicy reds, shirts swirled with turquoise and emerald, tops slashed with stripes in pink and purple. But I found that this sort of clothing only looks good on skeletons. If you have junk in the trunk, muffin tops and an ample chest, you risk looking like a sofa in such stuff. (I even had a lady try to sit on me at the mall. No joke. Ask Girl from the West.I must have looked like an inviting cushion or something.)
So I’ve retreated to the slimming browns and blacks and grays. I splash on color using jewlery, scarves and belts. But I’m drawn to black. Today I bought yet another black top to wear with jeans and a new pair of zip-up high-heeled boots. What color? Black, of course.
Tell Clinton and Stacy, would ya?
