darker days.






H&M divided black maxi dress and faux leather jacket; fashionology.nl bird skull necklace (gifted), hammered knuckle ring, claw ring, and cross ring (gifted); the extras chain buckle bracelet; forever 21 watch, lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet (gifted); asos ankle boot.

reverting back to black...it happens to me quite often.
i first saw this dress on columbine's blog a while back when she visited the H&M showroom, and after waiting patiently for about a month, i picked it up when it finally came out two weeks ago. it looks just like the t by alexander wang maxi, except it was, um, only $12.95. it's also quite sheer, so i'm wearing leggings underneath. but it has a breast pocket. and i love pockets.
i wore it on my day off, as it's not practical to trip over your dress when you work on your feet, running around on a sales floor all day.

(iPhone pic from the day they arrived at my doorstep)

speaking of work, i'm glad i've added this pair of (nearly) flat boots to the collection of shoes i wear on the job, as my frye 8R's have taken quite a beating. i wish they came in black too.
and a lighter brown.

I love how this looks on you. I never bought the A Wang maxi dress from Tobi and have been lamenting it for months.
Thank you also for your comment and for all of your well wishes for my mom.

Love your dress! Normally I am not a fan of maxi dresses, but this one is adorable! I might have to locate one for myself too. I am a major fan of black, too - it's definitely the staple color of my wardrobe.

And I dig your new boots too! So cute and comfy looking!
