Oh Black is such a happy colour, Darling ( A sentiment not many people share with me)! I know what you are thinking, this blogger has just stolen an overly-shared pinterest quote that has traveled the world-over. But for Big Bad Wolf Black is such a happy colour. It is authoritative, powerful and conjures up images of that independent, sexy, Femme-Fatale that can destroy a man with a simple twirl in her LBD.
If you know Big Bad Wolf you certainly know our obsession with the colour black. Just a simple glance at our Instagram page and you’ll see why. Black is sexy, it is mysterious yet warm and encompassing. As one of my favourite quotes go ” Ive been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colours was black”. Pierre-Auguste Renoir, a famous artist, knew that black is not only the most special of colours but personifies it as a Queen…a Woman. Black invokes a certain feminine power, an intellectual advancement and an existential secureness. We, women are the fundamental, just like the colour black. All life comes from within us just as all colours come from within black. Just like black, a woman’s strength is silent and calm. Black, I have officially come to realise, is all about Queening: The act of tastefully embracing your individuality, leading by example and living a muse.
