TO – 02/02 – back in black…

Computers and the Internet were supposed to make life easier; instead, people are busier than ever.
Overworked overachievers suffer from a worrying sense of anxiety.
We mess our minds with vague promises about what we should do, what we could do. But there is always more to do than there is time to do it.
But most of the stress that people feel comes from not keeping agreements they've made with themselves.
When we tell ourselves we have to do something and then don't do it, we experience self-doubt and frustration. We can fool all of the people some of the time, but we can't fool ourselves for a second.
There's usually an inverse relationship between how much something is on our mind and how much we're actually doing about it.
We are our own perfect victims and enemies.

These days I’ve been “walking” in dark colours. I always do that when I’m not well. I hope I might soon come back to the colours course… to the line of the rainbow.

  1. You do look great in black, but I hope you're able to get out the colours again soon too, hope you're ok! =]

  2. oh feel better soon. my friends are permanently attached to their blackberries and they can't relax at all even when we go out.

  3. Hi,

    have I told you that I love you today my friend????

    We live and let others live, we breathe in and breathe out, we feel and experience life with all it's pain, and horrors, and doubts, then realize we have been way off the clock; for so long. Like a moving arm on a big elegant clock, just slowing down, a second at a time, until we are in trouble.

    But we continue to live by experiencing these living and spiritual aspects, a day at a time, with what ever principles we may think of, as long as they make sense to us.

    That is a spiritual experience to me....

    Ciao baby....

  4. gilt does not ship outside of united states at this point.

  5. I love you in any colour but I hate to feel that you are feeling dark. I send you bright coloured hugs and much love.xoxo

  6. I hope you feel better. You look good. I hope you return to your colors soon.

  7. Your outfit looks fabulous. But my dear, you look sad. Please listen to the words you write to me and be kind to yourself. Maybe you are expecting too much of yourself. I hope you take the time daily just to relax and enjoy maybe the nature around you. It's important that you do that.

    Just do what you can and feel like doing , and then no more. You don't owe anyone anything. Take care please!


  8. Oh lady, we hardly ever see you in black. Hope the clouds part for you soon ...

  9. Such a great touch with the Gold belt!! And I adore you in black. :)

  10. that houndstooth top is fantastic!

  11. Elegant...and a bit avant garde in feel

  12. you look very argentinian for some reason.

  13. You are so wise...the post is as great as always!
    I love the top and the golden belt together!

  14. Hey love!
    Thank you for your amazing comments. THey always lift my spirits:)
    What is bothering you my dear? Is it health or emotional stress? Based on your post, I'd think it's the stress. Is it ever worth it? At times we can't control everything in our lives, however it's for the best. What seems like a problem today, tomorrow will end up being a solution. Be strong and remember I'm always there for you, IF you'd like to talk.
    Sending you my prayers and I know you will feel better very soon!

  15. Your outfit is perfect and stylish as always...


    xoxo: Janet

  22. You look amazing. I love you in black! I have to convince myself that I won't be completely cut off from the world if I don't go online or forget my phone at home.

  23. Oh it's unusual to see you wearing black but it suits you really well.

  24. I adore the black ensemble and that houndstooth top, I keep trying to get myself to wear black. I hope you're ok :) And it's true that the highest expectations on us are the ones we hold to ourselves.

  25. The golden belt is great, keep on rocking.

  26. Lady in black, verrrrry sexy! xx

  27. These are wise words. I hope that your darkness lifts like a cloud, to reveal a bright sky for you tomorrow.

    Go easy on yourself--you are a bright spot in the days of many of us!

    By the way, have I mentioned that I am amazed at how you put everything together in your outfits? I wouldn't know where to begin! It looks effortless on you--beautiful.


  28. Amiga, sintonia!
    Falei mais ou menos sobre isso lá no blog hoje!
    Também sou assim, e não só pelas cores, mas também por toda a produção em si, que parece que me deixo um pouco de lado.
    Não podemos!
    Nós duas, que gostamos de cores, sabemos que precisamos voltar ao arco-íris!

  29. Ah, preciso dizer que, mesmo in black, está linda e elegante!

  30. Oh no... I hope you fell better darling <3

  31. loveLOVElove this! sexy sexy chic!

  32. The last month has been exactly like that for me: a lot of stress, nothing of self-confidence, all in black or dark colours.

    But the eternal hope is that the sun will shine after the storm... is it like that for you now?

  33. You looked sharp, even though you were not feeling well. I hope things have improved for you, Seeker.
