    Hmm. I'm not actually TOO sure why. I used to be into White alot, and alot of blue. I have always fancied brown though, but I just never seemed to be able to look good in it (personally believe that), or seemed to find anything brown in color that would look nice. Although, when it comes to home decor, browns are nice to me. That is to say ANY "natural" looking colors really.

    Black is just something I seemed to have fallen in love with, I don't know why too much. I know some people would think it's too bland.. or stale looking. Has no detail, you know. But it's just something I like, how simple it is. Plus the color is defined for me in several ways that I can relate to, at least how I see the color as.

    But still, a mori girl sounds like she would look really good o-o
