Ready

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

  • black sunnies w/white bows, Target
  • D.I.Y. shredded black tee
  • vintage acetate slip, worn as dress
  • black leather strappy shoes from Target
  • a boat-load of attitude and some new bangs

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.

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 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.
