True Colours
From the end of 1999 I was in mourning for my father for a year, and came
out of two years mourning for my partner at Easter this year. So I'm a bit
over black for a while, and have been dragging my winter clothes from 2001
out of the back of the cupboard.

It is interesting how colours & fashion styles do seem to cycle
around things that are incompatible with each other (eg lots of 'ice-cream'
pastels, then bright primaries, then very minimalist 'elegant', etc.
combined with a shape variable involving loose/tight, long/short, etc.),
with a changeover period usually involving black & white. Over several
decades I've built up enough of a wardrobe to keep me going most of the
time, and just wait for the cycle to swing past something that suits me to
pounce on it.
