Back in black: My new favourite colour

I used to have a bit of a phobia of black. I mean, I didn’t run away screaming at the sight or anything, but I certainly didn’t have it in my wardrobe.

Kinky Boots: How to wear knee highs

As soon as I saw these burgundy knee highs I was totally and irrevocably in love.
