are you ready to be heart broken?
Woke up with a boat-load of attitude, and somehow the usual uniform of cut-off jeans and a sugary sweet vintage top wasn't going to cut it for the day. You know what did? A shredded T-shirt pulled over an favorite thick acetate black slip, the kind I use to wear as dresses back in the '80's. The hat just seemed like the perfect topper for this slight nod to the dark and slouchy decade of my youth. Anyhoo, the look just fit my black mood, and immediately put me in brighter spirits.
Speaking of bright and broke, I'm going to be taking a mini-vacay of sorts so while you'll be seeing some scheduled posts, I won't be able to respond to your comments or visit your blogs for a bit. I hope you don't mind. This girl needs a little R&R and such. But I'll see you on the flip side, peeps. I still love you. -Bella Q

Enjoy your vacay, Bella!!!
love this! very much, and dressing with your mood is a fabulous thing to do!
I hope you have a great break and get all the R&R you need. I tend to gravitate to all-black outfits when I'm feeling stressed, and I love this one! My favourite part is the cute hat.
Love the hat with the black outfit. Dark, but still a bit playful. Enjoy your R&R!
It works!! You look great! Enjoy your vacation...come back refreshed! Hugs! ~Serene
That tee could not be more perfectly shredded. LOVE.
You look awesome, Bella. And I hear ya on the vacay. I need one badly. Have a good one and get some good R&R!
Taking time off is GOOD. Will miss you but have a great time. The trilby is perfect on you!
Love that you dress how you feel.....the hat is a perfect touch!
I like it when you go all black on me.....have a nice time sweetheart! Be back soon......we'll be waiting......mwah! <3
Enjoy your break - wishing you plenty of relaxation.
Love the way you dress here for mood. I actually find that if I'm dressed wrongly for my mood, I just have to go and change! Not only that, but it works.
Love your outfit and your 'tude! That first photo is fabulous - my favorite. Love the hat too! You know I am a hat fan!!
Have a great vacation!!
Enjoy your break, my dear friend.
WE love you...though I don't suppose that's the same. I actually like this "dark mood" look.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, a vintage slip worn as dress - you look gorgeous Bella! I hope your break away is everything you need my dear:)) xoxoxo
You pretty much every style look cool. I can totally imagine you back in the 80's. I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with some memories in common.
PS: Enjoy your R&R. Everybody needs it:)

Love the outfit :)
I love your all black outfit! Very chic my dear.
Have a great blogcation. I'm still taking mine. Enjoy! See you when you get back.
Love the slip-as-a-dress look. Nothing like a tough outfit to sweeten one's mood. It's a great look - especially with the houndstooth hat!
Fantastic outfit, Bella. You look tough and I love it.
