My Outfit Monday: Black Dress Blahs



I'm having a hard time smiling today, for no particular reason. I'm not unhappy. I just can't seem to form one of those big, fat photo smiles, no matter how hard I try.

But here I am wearing yet another cool necklace from Chico's, thanks to my mother's jewelry box purging last year. A hint of a smile.


And here's the whole outfit, under the office fluorescent lights, against the backdrop of some awards I didn't win. I'm pretty sure the dress was purchased from JCPenney last fall. The shoes are from TJ Maxx. I call them my black Barbie shoes because they are so stiffly shaped and sling-backed and open-toed, the Barbie shoe prototype. I probably could have accessorized more -- I'm not even wearing earrings today -- but it's a simple black dress kind of day, I suppose. Sorry for the face. Seriously, I think my smile is broken today.


Happy Monday, I think.
