Photography by Michele Equitz
While browsing these photos and deciding which ones to share, I realized I haven't seen myself wearing black in a long time. I used to be a girl who wore black all the time. I'm not sure what changed. Maybe it was moving back to Seattle and finding a way to brighten up the constant grey and gloom. Maybe it was just wardrobe malaise. But all black lends such a chic look, I don't know why I ever stopped! I think the pattern from the stripes and the texture from the studs mixes it up just enough to avoid looking stoic or uptight. And the brimmed hat? Well, that's just my preferred method of hair protection from that constant grey-and-gloom-induced rain here in my hometown.
