WIWW: Devil with the Blue Dress and White Dress On

I was in a groove early in the week, happily mixing it up with different takes on black and white and then I got completely bored with that and had to go color-crazy.

That's kinda how I roll in general. I fall in love with something and can't get enough of it, and then all-of-a-sudden BOOM! I'm completely over it, and I go all knee-jerk/back-lashy in the opposite direction.

It's not so bad with clothes, but I'm guessing the boyfriends of my past would probably say it's not the best approach to relationships.

Sorry boys!

(I dated a lot of white boys before I married Al. Can you say "inevitable?")


(I'm really not the least it cavalier about the way I've handled past relationships, but guilt and remorse don't play out well in quippy, funny outfit posts, and after all, I am very happily married now, as are all of them that I have kept up with, so it all came out well in the end.)
