When Only a Black Dress Will Do…Donna Does Dresses


When Only A Black Dress Will Do!! 

AUGUST 14, 2019

Don’t Fight It!!

There are times in your life when certain things are exactly right and perfectly fit the bill.

I had a potentially difficult meeting to attend on Monday of this week, which is one of the reasons I didn’t get my usual Tuesday write-up done.

It’s been my experience that if I wish to realise and convey my full strength and power than a black outfit is the best solution … along with preparation, a clear head and so on.

On With the Dress:

Style and Confidence:

This dress by British brand, @feverlondon has been in my wardrobe for quite a few years, but always has my vote for a confident and stylish look.

I actually have this dress in burgundy and it is a totally different look and vibe!

Studies show that your clothing colour not only impacts the emotions of those around us but also impacts our own emotions.

Black is a strong and powerful colour to wear, so it was perfect for what I was entering into …



Please excuse the white cat hair here and there on the dress, but I did take these photos as I was just about to rush out the door for a stressful drive to Sydney and didn’t check well enough …  these are the two culprits!!

Back to the Dress!

I love the diagonal neckline and the ruching across the front of the waist that doesn’t swamp my figure.

Lifting the Drama …

Never one to shy away from issues, it was my purpose to drive home a certain point in said meeting so I didn’t hesitate to “up the drama” in my outfit!

I felt the fishnets stockings, animal print gloves, beret, booties and brooch worked somewhat towards achieving that:

All the Best of Luck…

In the end what will be, will be but I did the best I could and that’s all any of us can do in this life.

My dragonfly brooch always gives me a bit more oomph, and this fab military coat felt good too, because we are still experiencing cold here in sunny Australia so it was great to throw around the shoulders!

Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web and I’d love you to leave a comment about how you feel about colour in clothing or any other thing of interest! Or why not leave a like or follow?

Enjoy the rest of your week and take your joy where you find it, because life is short!!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities!
