The Bold and Beautiful BLACK!!

Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy- but mysterious. But above all Black says this: ” I don’t bother you- don’t bother me.”

– Yohji Yamamoto

The color ‘Black” takes me to a world of elegance and class. It is a true representation of bold and beautiful. Ever wondered why the court judges wear long black robes? Or the Referees of many sports wear black as well? Or a superior expertise in any martial art is shown by a black belt? I believe it is because Black is morbid, powerful and timeless.

Black is everywhere. From the innocence in the eyes of a new born baby to the seduction in a kohl rimmed dark Indian eyes, from the aura of mystery and intrigue that a lady clad in a Little Black Dress creates, to the peacefulness in a pitch-black night, from the queenly ‘Black Beauty’ to the kingly ‘Dark Knight in shining Armour’, from a piece of coal to the exquisite black rice, from the intoxication in a ‘Black Eyed Peas’ song to the joyride in ‘yeh kaali kaali aankhein’, from the pungent Black Mustard to the hot Black pepper, from the Black Velvet to the Black Label, from the popular Bollywood flick ‘Black’ to the Oscar winning ‘Black Swan’ – Black adds spice to life.

It’s a Herculean task to bring down the Black things I desire, to five.

e. Black Lamborghininew-lamborghini-aventador-in-black-color

A stunning matte Lamborghini is what comes to my mind at first. It’s beautiful, it’s perfect and makes you go Wooooowww!!!!

Look at him- Beauty, Grace and Strength is all that lingers in my mind right now.

Fast and Furious, Challenging and Cool- it is an epitome of pride and dignity.

d. A sexy pair of Black Boots

Cindrelbootsla is a proof that new shoes can change your course of life. A great shoe can make you feel taller and stronger, as if you’re already miles ahead.

A black pair of boots makes it perfect when you wear a Little Black Dress. You can never go wrong with them, can you?

It makes you move in finesse, poise and balance- as elegant as a swan.

This definitely is in my “soon-to-be-bought” list and I’m heading for shopping NOW!

c. Black Diamond

Be it earrings or rings, Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. And if it is black, well well well!!!!! Black diamonds are exquisite, they are rare and magical. Dazzling, glamorous and alluring, they alight with shimmer and sparkle.   


b. A Black Labrador Retriever


Considered to be the best dog breed, Labs are the perfect blend of friend, companion, and fun for any crazy family. They are wonderful swimmers and the easiest breed to train.

They are well-suited to family life and like to feel as though they are part of a family’s daily activities.

They are gentle, good with children, adventure-loving and happiest when you are by their side.

Yes, I had a Lab back home with my parents and I’m getting one for ourselves.

a. My Man in Black Tuxedo

It goes without saying that Men in Black are the most appealing.

No, not him <—!! But manI love seeing “my” Man in Black. Wear it to a ball room dance, the opening of a ballet, a reception or formal dinner party at a fancy restaurant (especially with me),  a tuxedo highlights the charm and sex appeal.

Trying out different colored shirts to go along with the black suit makes it his time to shine.

It always  gives off the ‘duck above water’ appearance and he goes with the saying, “When in doubt, wear Black!”


My affection to Black is never-ending. And the list can go on and on and on.
