black dress




I have been sick with a killer sinus infection all week. The kind where you have to take antibiotics the size of a shoe twice a day. The kind where I keep threatening to cut my head off and start over, until my husband reminds me that he likes my head the way it is, plus I couldn't blog without a head. So I changed my mind. I am in the mood to wear black, but I like wearing black no matter my mood really. Tonight I will wear my new dress to a church meeting, but it could easily double as concert attire, or even funeral attire. Black symbolizes seriousness, but it also acts as a nice backdrop for red, fun lipstick, or bright jewelry. Tonight I will wear it as someone mourning the loss of breathing through her nose. Or maybe someone who mourns those headache-free days. Whatever the reason, the head will stay so that I have something to hang my pearl earrings from. moan...

Cute dress! I'm so glad you need to wear those earrings so you can't get rid of your head. Head colds are terrible, and I hope it goes away very soon!

I bet even your sorry head will look adorable in that dress! I so feel your pain--I had three bouts of a horrible sinus infection last year. THREE!! Hated it! So sorry you are feeling that way . ..

Black is the best color to wear, no matter the occasion. Can't even tell you how much black is in my closet.

Very cute dress! You'll look fab, even if you don't feel it! Get better soon!

I feel your pain. Seriously. I have a sinus infection right now, but can't go to the doctor's office until next week!!!! UGGGHHH!!!!

LOVE the dress!!! (But yellow/green may have been a more appropriate color during sinus season, so you might just want to send the dress my way. hehehehe)

I think you're brave going out at all - I'm going nowhere (except medical appts) till I'm better! Get well soon :)

I LOVE black dresses, too - but they generally symbolize seductiveness to me! Sorry you're feeling bad. We've all had the flu at our house - still going thru stages of it - for two weeks now. My hubby had those giant horse pills for sinusitus, too...

How do you manage to be so funny even when you are not feeling well? You crack me up. Pretty dress. And thanks for not cutting your head off :-)
