I love that quote from Valerie Steele.

Truth is, I've always had an aversion to wearing black, but after having to wear it for years to work, it has now become the predominant colour in my wardrobe. There is just something so powerful and classic and easy about it - can't really say I don't like it anymore!

My friend wanted to borrow a colourful dress for a wedding but I realized most of mine were black.
I agree black is so easy and a classic fall back when in doubt. Also a great backdrop to a fantastic piece of jewellery or other accessory!
You really can’t beat a little black dress!
