Fashionista Street: Silhouette Black

Manhattan, Fifth Ave., 9 a.m.: the place to take the temperature of Modern Woman, according to Bill Cunningham’s On the Street photo essay. Basic black isn’t basic, Bill says, and it isn’t a leading economic indicator of gloom and doom. It’s a time-saver for busy fashionistas on the go. Hmm. Same reason why I wear a beard instead of wasting time scraping little tiny hairs off my face every morning.

    I enjoy Bill Cunningham’s perspective and photographs. He enjoys women’s fashion, admires women, and understands the importance of black in a woman’s wardrobe. I have 3 black coats that I punch up with brilliant scarves.

    I never get bored with versatile black. You can mix, match, play up, play down, and it’s very forgiving.

    Here’s hoping that “Santa baby” will hurry down the chimney with a few choice black garments.

    I’m sure Santa Baby confers with Bill Cunningham on these decisions. :)
