I have long black hair and skin so white its nearly transparent. This is all natural. I did not ask for black hair, nor did I ask for a pale complexion.
I do not wear black makeup never did!
I do however wear black clothing but there is a reason for it. I have absolutely no sense of fashion or matching colours.
As long as most of my outfit is black if I throw in another colour I know it will match with the black. Back is also slimming, and makes me look taller.
I am fashion impaired... not gothic.
