It’s been a while since my husband and I dressed up for an event. I believe it was three years ago. Well, we get to put on our nice attire again since we are going to a wedding on Saturday. How exciting! The wedding is a black tie affair but I believe the colors of the wedding are black and red. At least that’s the colors of the invitation. I will have to check. The invitation is currently buried somewhere underneath a pile of paper on my dining room table.
Black and white is an elegant combination that would never go out of style. “ Black is the absorption of all color and the absence of light. Black hides, while white brings to light. What black covers, white uncovers. We all use black at various times to hide from the world around us in one way or another. Some of us use it to hide our weight; others among us use it to hide our feelings, our fears or our insecurities. “ via
The color black is often seen as a color of sophistication, as in 'the little black dress', or 'the black tie event'. Affluent and success orientated women often choose black as it can give an impression of elegance, sophistication and confidence.
This is a little creepy for me, but hey!
Although I love the black and white combination I do not ever see myself living in the place decorated with those colors. I will make sure to post few photos of the wedding next week.
