Black Dahlia

Forever 21 dress 001

I feel like now is a better time than ever to break out the black outfits!  As I've mentioned before, I don't really have much black in my wardrobe.  That doesn't mean I don't enjoy wearing it, I just don't like to do it all the time.  I wanted to build an outfit around my flower crown, which was the first one I've ever made.  I had some silk roses sitting around (they were part of a party favor from the weekend) so I decided to re-purpose them into an accessory.  They were way too pretty to go to the trash!

Today is my first day at my new job.  It's an eight hour shift and I'm a bit worried because it will be the longest amount of time I've ever been away from Bianca.  I'm just hoping she'll be okay but I know it's going to be much harder on me.  I'm also not too excited about pumping at work.  Other than that, I'm looking forward to starting a new journey at Unique Vintage!  Wish me luck!

  7. Congrats on your new job! And I'm sure baby B will be missing you just as much as you miss her! ♥ Love, love, love this dress, especially matched with a very autumn-centric crown of flowers. Can't go wrong with all black, at least in my opinion.

  8. Wow I never knew a black outfit would look so absolutely stunning. I don't have much black either but sometimes I like to wear it with bright stand out accessories. Your look is so enchanting. I love flower crowns. Just bought one for the race season here in yellow. Good luck with your new job. What job is it? I didn't know about this but I remember your posts awhile back about whether or not you were going to stay at home with little B.

  11. Congrats on the new gig- I hope your first week went smooth! You look stunning! I love the crown (great job on that!), and I totally will base an outfit around an accessory I want to wear :) I'm with you and don't have much black in my closet, but it's really fun to wear as something different sometimes! Happy Halloween :)
