We can't even keep track of what is the new black any more. For a while it was grey, then we think it was pink and now... have we come full circle and black is the new black? We're so confused! Good thing we have these The New Black Pencils ($6) to keep us in the know, and giggling. Not only are the pencils (duh) all black, they're also emblazoned with 12 different statements about what the new black is. Our current fave is "in the red is the new black", based on our recent spending habits!
