Black Pearl

On Monday, I walked into my Manager’s office and she said “Thelma, never wear black!”  Just like that.  As if it were a completely acceptable way to greet me.  This direction was given on one of the rare occasions I was not wearing black.  Apparently, I looked a lot better than usual.

I didn’t take too kindly to this thinly disguised insult and have resolved to dress head to toe in black for work until the day I leave (I may have a slight issue with authority).   So far, my newfound obsession with Chanel Black Pearl is fitting in quite nicely with this plan.

Huh? What's wrong with black? It's stylish, chic, contemporary, classic, and elegant. I just don't see what's the problem.

Haha - don't listen to your boss! Everyone looks good in black. I splurged on black pearl a while back, and I'm totally obsessed with it too.

I would be upset if my boss said that!
I do love this color though. Great pearly sheen to it!
