When I hear the phrase 'BLACKOUT' I think two things: 

1. Britney Spears's cult classic 2007 album, Blackout.

2. A style of clothing often worn by people of the goth community.

So here's my internal dilemma...do I want to listen to some Queen of Pop or rock out to Evanescence's hit "Bring Me to Life." Pop music guilty pleasures or gothic guilty pleasures? Really, there is no wrong answer. You do you, BooBoo!

In all seriousness, I have been have been on an all-block outfit kick lately. Black Levi's commuters. Black sweaters. Black leather jackets. Black boots. Black Nike athletic wear. All I ever want to wear is black, black and more black. When my brother came to visit recently, I purposefully made the effort to go to stores that I knew would have a good selection of black clothing - Levi's, Urban Outfitters, Topman, Nike. I sincerely think a complete re-haul of my wardrobe is in the future...

What it really boils down to is this: dressing in one color, all black, can look incredibly sexy and badass. Why not dress confidently and go out into the city owning your look? Badass, mysterious, blonde hair dude? Yea, that's me!
