outfit post: Darker than Black

   
  And I, infinitesimal being,
  drunk with the great starry void,
  likeness, image of mystery,
  felt myself a pure part of the abyss,
  I wheeled with the stars,
  my heart broke loose on the wind.
                                                     -Pablo Neruda 





Now Wearing:
  • Bespoked knit cloche- Etsy
  • Merona cotton dress- Target
  • Vintage skinny leather belt
  • Mexican Mary cuff
    (hecho en Mexico)
  • Flaming Hag Folkwear Cuff, Crimson & Clover
  • Vintage hand-made  Moroccan leather slippers

What a great dress, Bella!! I have got to go by Target more often...but my favorite here is the cuff...I love cuffs and hope they stay in style a long time!!

Black looks so gorgeous on you, that dress fits you like a dream and the hat only emphasises your beauty. The jewels make me go weak at the knees. xxx

Misfits Vintage said...

Oooh the Mary bracelet. The MARY BRACELET!!! You look gorgeous in black and I love the simplicity of this outfit.

Delish bracelets, and what a cute dress, darkest black yet springtime fresh. I like how it displays and accentuates your tattoos.

This look has a bit of the joyfulness of a flapper girl mix with the deep thoughtfulness of a Pablo Nedura poem!
If you like Pablo Neruda you may also like to read Ruben Dario.

Are you sure that dress wasn't custom made for you? It fits like a dream and I love the lace peeking out:)). OK those cuffs are going to haunt me tonight - I swear they are so beautiful!! xoxoxoxoxox

You are like a 1920's hottie updated for today, which I love. The cuff is killing me, it is so beautiful and I like the slimmest of red belts around that dress. Girly with edge, love, love!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Bella. <3

What a cute dress love the hat!

Laura Connell said...

Ooh, what a fantastic cuff. I also love the red belt with the all black. I adore red accessories with black or black and white polka dots. The belt also creates a lovely feminine silhouette.

Rebecca said...

You did a great job of making the black dress stand out with accessories. I like the hat.

sacramento said...

I love Pablo Neruda´s poem, your black dress and hat touch by the red belt, and adore the bracelet with "La virgen de Guadalupe", ahhhhhhhhhhhh I have goose pimples now.
Love U.

You have so many varied "looks", and they all work. Love that dress. Three cheers for a place you can purchase toilet paper and cute dresses!

Polka Princess said...

Love the way you've worn that hat with the dress dear! And that bracelet is just wow! :)

frontrowspectator.com said...

to be honest,I prefer you in color! I feel like all the black doesn't match your sweet personality.

Nonetheless, you look great Bella.
