All black everything again

ello from upstate New York, where I’m recovering from a wedding in a big fluffy hotel bed. I have to say the wedding was beautiful, with a personal ceremony, amazing food and lots of love. The whole thing was well worth the trip overseas.

We arrived a couple of days early because my boyfriend had some business to take care of and we shot his finished Tribeca Loft Project. And of course, we wanted a couple days off in the city.

This is what I wore on friday for the welcome drinks before the wedding. My recent/current health problems have caused me to gain some weight, and I’m a bit reluctant to admit I’m struggling with it quite a lot. I’ve never been thin, nor have I ever really wanted to be really skinny, but the fact that about 2/3 of my much loved wardrobe doesn’t fit anymore has thrown me way off. I hate it, and it has caused me to feel less like myself than ever.

So I’m choosing black. Black because it makes me feel secure, black because it is slimming, and mostly because it is strong. Here’s to hoping I’ll feel like my old self soon. Until then, thank god for black.
