I decided to participate in Sally’s black dress challenge be in August as that is when I am most likely to wear summer black. I will mostly feature a black sleeveless Talbots dress from the Good Will store. As it was popular during my battle of black dresses challenge but sometimes will wear a shorter more fitted version.

I started with what is mostly the basic dress but also wore a long older Halogen black linen cardi when I needed warmth. (#1/2). Shoes are old EF black wide ankle strap flats. Very comfortable. Hair is COVID long and pulled back with a big black silk bow. This could be worn to a summer funeral. Some silver and shell jewelry was added. I used a small black fringed suede leather bag and a big black straw bag to add more texture.
I welcome your comments and suggestions.

Edited to add today’s outfit ( #3-5). Same black dress with black and tan top and scarf, Taryn Rose bronze flats.

ETA: today’s black dress outfit. I needed red for courage to
say goodbye our dear doggie, Maggie. The basic dress is topped by a colorful poncho topper that is like a scar. The print has black and brown in its animal print. Red shoulder bag.
More black dress outfits. #8 is the basic dress with pearls and shells and my white espadrilles for a hot day. #9-11 are the same dress with different jackets in cotton or linen. #12/13 is the dress with a white linen EF poncho.
