Our first-ever European travel destination was London. 1999. The famously gloomy London weather greeted our new-kid-in-town feelings in a mix of excitement and culture shock.
Oxford Street was swathed in dark clouds, with people all dressed in black winter finery, sophisticated as can be. We stood out from the crowd in our blue jackets that we wore to combat the bitter cold... in perhaps the first fashion statement we ever had to make, inadvertently as it were.
Today, i mostly wear black. It has become my signature color.
