Black Out Friday --Jamaica

We all agree that these are harsh economic times. A time of financial embarrassment, bankruptcy, hiding from debt collectors...etc, etc. yaddi, yaddi, yadda... But is this excuse enough for corporate giants to wear us thin? Take us for every dollar etc.? No!
We each have to "pull our own weight" towards the improvement of our country... right?
There are companies existing in this beautiful land, who are the epitome of the embodiment of monotony and we all know that where there is no competition, the margin of error, vastly increases. By that I mean, there is little motive for improving goods and or services since there is but one supplier.
Case in point, our energy provider, the Jamaica Public Service Company Ltd, which is by the way, owned by Marubeni (not of Jamaica), is majority shareholder with the minuscule share of the company, a meagre 20% belonging to the government- SHAMEFUL!
Anyways, Friday 19/08/2011 was dubbed "J.P.S Black Out Friday". In support of a peaceful demonstartion so dubbed, customers  were urged to wear black in  protest against the high cost required of us on our  electricity bills.
My bestie and I sported outfits below....

I Know My Body

Knowing your body is what is like the foundation of successful style. What some folks don't understand is that....
You can be trendy but not fashionable, fashionable yet not stylish. If you have a sense of fashion... you will agree that body type is fundamental to successful styling. I have an hourglass figure and I rock it. Being stylish is 50% attitude. Exude confidence and people will take note.
My style is infectious....and I'd like to keep it that way. So styling....

(Actually, the belt is bronze, but turned inside out, its white).

So Blue for blues....

I'm now in the place where planning an outfit is beginning to feel overrated and its like... what's up with that!
Grossly overrated. Lately its been pretty much grab and go when dressing these days.
 The reason for this is because its so damn hot! I can't tolerate the closeness of jeans, even leggings are a bit much @ times.... SMH. Anywhooo....enough babbling.

Back to Black

One of my favorite hues, sadly, is BLACK. So I am an earthy gal...love my browns, my reds and my greens. For me, the darker, the better. A friend of mine is opposite... If its loud, bright, attention grabbing or border-line garish.... hand it to her. She'll wear it.
I was reminded of just how much I like black... when for the week, I repeatedly reached for dark ensembles to wear to work....SMH. Photo op below....
