TEXTURE BL(O/A)CKING

Lets face it black can be boring at times specially if you wear it religiously like I do. This is why you have to learn how to play with different textures, materials and silhouettes to show the different shades of black.
For my second PFW day I chose different materials such as wool (jacket), cotton (tank), denim (drainpipes), leather(tote and skirt) and acrylic(tank) in order to avoid a flat black number. Also, I played with different patterns like stamped alligator (tote), leather strips (shoes), solids (jacket, pants and skirt) and knits (shirt) to liven up the ensemble. To create a modern silhouette I wore my fierce black asymmetrical three-quarter cape jacket which can be worn several ways. So far, I've managed to create five different looks. I'm sure I will discover new looks next time I use it. And to keep my look clean and simple I abstained from wearing any jewelry or any form of burloloy (Tagalog slang for gaudy or excessive accessorizing).
