How fitting is this post? We watched the original MIB movie from 1997 with our kids yesterday. I absolutely love Will Smith! His acting, talent and fashion sense back then and now. Will was definitely sporting some bright bold colors early in the movie but once he became a MIB – it was all about black. His demeanor and swag changed instantly and I find that to be true with myself.
This post is for people who only love wearing black or tend to gravitate towards the color black. Now, that I am getting older I am finding myself wearing solid neutral colors and black is definitely one of them. Black is so classic, sophisticated and effortlessly sexy.
Even though, summer temps may deter you from wearing such a color – don’t make that mistake! Choose one that is light-weight and midi-length. The relevance of this color is unwavering.

BEBE ‘Berdine’ Womens Sandals / Colors: Natural Snake, Wine Satin, Silver, Black Faux and Pink Metallic
At only 5’4″ inches I am considered a petite. In fashion and clothing, a petite size is a standard clothing size designed to fit women of shorter height than the average, typically 162 cm (5 ft 4 in). So, you better believe I will take any chance I can take to look taller. And, the easiest way is through shoes! This is why I love a good pair of comfortable stiletto heel sandals. The ones I am wearing from BEBE feature three futuristic bands allowing a lot of skin to show. This also adds to the illusion of longer legs.
