The Absence of Colour

"Women think of all colours
except the absence of colour.
I have said that black has it all.
White too. Their beauty is absolute.
It is the perfect harmony."
                 ~Coco Chanel

   I'm sorry that I have been missing in action for so long. I had such ambitious plans for October - which was my first mistake - ambitious plans always lead to one thing…the flu. It's like the universe knows you have things to do! I have been sick for weeks and struggling to get even the tiniest errands done. Well I am on the mend now and while I haven't been able to take any new photoshoots I do have some new treasures to share with you in the Etsy Shop and I thought for fun (and because it is the right season) that I would share some of my favourite pictures from my NOIR pinterest board. I am a pastel girl all the way - I can't bear to have really bright colours in my home. In direct contrast to that preference though I rarely wear pastel colours. I have dark hair and I just seem to gravitate towards darker colours. I wear lots of black! Black sweaters with rhinestone buttons, black skirts with pleated fringes, black blouses, and don't even get me started on black tights. I loooooooooove fancy tights. :) I will have to do a post about it soon. In the meantime I hope you like these pretty pictures. Because they are on my pinterest board I haven't the faintest where most of them came from but if you browse on pinterest you might have a better chance of discovering the links. There are some beautiful tumblr blogs out there! Oh and be sure to stop by the shop to see the new pretties! Here's a little preview: 





  1. My home is filled with creams and greys and I love pastel colors too. Like you I lean toward black in my clothing. It seems we have a lot in common. Your board images are gorgeous. Love that quote from Chanel.
