etsy color: black

black isn't exactly a color. while white is the combination of all colors, black is the absence of color. and for something so "lacking" in color, it speaks absolute volumes. i don't feel like black is depressing or sad at all. i think it's sophisticated and chic, edgy and bold. black can also be incredibly elegant...but in a different way than white. black is mysterious. and when you wear it or decorate with it that bit of mystery is what gives black a little something that's hard (if not impossible) to pinpoint...but draws you in nonetheless.

Portland, OR, United States
hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
