I suppose it's kind of ridiculous that, in my small wardrobe, I have three black dresses and a black skirt, but black, often tempered with cognac leather and denim, is a staple for me.

I wore both of my casual black dresses this week.

Pic 1: Worn to Pinball Expo in Denver. Black jersey hi-lo maxi dress with Puma sneakers and red Tom Bihn messenger bag.

Pic 2: Worn for weekly coffee with friends. Black cotton fit-and-flare shirtdress, Bed Stu sandals

Sorry details are so difficult to see. It's a Catch-22 that I'm more likely to snap outfit pics if I don't bother with the tripod and good camera, but it's harder to get a good photo with the iPhone and mirror.
