The Boston Globe
Baby’s in black
Beth Teitell

“When Kelly Dennis goes out with her infant daughter, she often notices people giving her looks. As in: What kind of a mother are you?”

“Dennis’s crime? Dressing little Willow in the color black. Black skinny jeans, black tops, black boots, black onesies, black yoga pants — she has them all.”

“As many adults can testify, when black clothing gets its hooks into you, buying and wearing other colors can be hard. But black clothes weren’t always so dominant, said Leatrice Eiseman.”

“In the 19th century, black was worn almost exclusively by widows, clerics, and, in the theater, villains. It wasn’t adopted by artists or activists until the 20th century, she said.”

One of my favorite authors,  Nora Ephron  also weighed in on this issue.

    Are you talking about within the post or in the sidebar? Any information that you find that is hard to read in the sidebar all you need to do is click on the images and they should link you to an easier to read section.

    I can’t see the type. Gray on gray doesn’t work.
