Phase of the Moment: In Goth We Trust

I've had fashion phases before. I remember in high school, I was into the preppy schoolboy looks (nerd was my keyword), then to colors (wild and eye-popping), then to surf looks (à la American Eagle and the like), and then to shorts (even in winter).

Right now, I guess I'm in the black-on-black phase. My choice of clothing revolves around the color. And I'm increasingly aware of it now that I've been purchasing--surprise, surprise--black clothes!

I think it's for convenience since black is the most trustworthy color: when all else fails, black is always the fall back! I did visualize myself being goth, though. The mere thought scared me a little bit because, frankly, I'm the joyous type.

Givenchy has a wonderful goth-inspired collection. I really like the contradictions in the Fall-Winter 2010 menswear, that of calm religious piety and sleek sportiness. But the contradictions don't stop there! View the full collection at

Goth, that is a scary thought! But as you say, you can't go wrong with black.

Mikey was inspired by a family I knew growing up. Hopefully they won't see it, recognize themselves, and get upset at what I'm doing to the boy! =)

I can never imagine you to be goth or anything close to goth, honey! You are just such a bright and sunny person that it shines right through you! ;)

I do like black, it makes me look skinny. hehehehe But now that I look through my closet I seem to have a lot of whites and spring happy colors.

Oh and thank you so much for your sweet comment the other day. You're so awesome. Virtual hugs and kisses to you dear. You definitely made me smile.

And lastly, ummmm...errrrr...I hope you won't hate me for this, but I tagged you in my latest blog post. hehehehe.
