One thing I like about jazz, kid, is that I don't know what's going to happen next. Do you? — Bix BeiderbeckeI'll admit it. I don't like over-planning things, including my outfits. This number was slung together like a Thelonious Monk tunello, all nonchalant and confident.
I know it works, even without looking too long in the mirror. Thrifted black cotton maxi, thrifted hat, killer sunglasses, simple shoes. No time to worry about hair and make-up, I've got stuff to do. The silhouette is strong- long, lean and black- always a look that conveys a bit of an outsider. I'm wearing a vintage straw porkpie hat, which makes me think cool-as-fuck jazz musician. Or Buster Keaton.
Aka the Great Stone Face.
And still pretty cool.
It was hot. I wore black.
And my great porkpie hat.

cool and hot, B!
Thank you Patti!
That is a bad ass hat!!! I love that picture.
That picture of Buster Keaton is cool but you're cooler. x
Totally rockin' badass!
I wish I had a hat to join you all magic people.
Black is great on you with your dark eyes and hair.
I really love the glasses...very mysterious.
For a moment there I mistook Buster Keaton for Melanie! Realized from this post that I've been calling something a "pork pie" for years...wrongly! Yikes. Lookin' good.
Oh Bella, you level-up the cool!!!
Looking fabulous, Bella, rocking the black and those very cool shades! xxxx
Very cool and yet very bad and hot and mysterious. Love it.
You are totally rockin that hat!
Bella, I am honored that you took the time to take your black silhouette over to Hat Attack and join the party. You have the talent to dress from head to toe in black to the improvisation of Thelonious Monk, and stun any crowd. Thank you for linking up to Hat Attack.
Oh so cool! Great look for you!
There's a line in a Clash song 'You think you're pretty hot in your pork pie hat.' And Bella, you look hot in yours!
looking good, dang, you are looking good x
omg, I love that hat on you.
You are very right... it works. And how. Well done.
Your such a cool biatch!
