She wore blaaaaack velvet… blacker than velvet was the night. Just kidding. Although I DID have that Bobby Vinton song stuck in my head while I wrote this post–transposing blue for black of course.

Last week I wore high heels and today I’m wearing black. I can’t remember the last time I wore anything black? I literally own one black shirt which I’ve worn for outfit pictures here. I think part of the reason I generally stay away from wearing black is that I have dark hair; if I wear my hair down while wearing a black top, it tends to blend in. Well guess what folks? I wore my hair in a braided twisty bun thing (don’t ask me how I did it!) while wearing a black dress: crisis averted! No more lame excuses not to wear black.

This is my outfit last post featuring a dress from ACT THREE. Apparel. (Side note: Sarah, the designer, just wrapped up the S/S ’16 shoot… so excited to see the next collection of ACT THREE.!) This dress is named the France dress, after France Gall, the French Ye-ye singer. This dress is more on the wintry spectrum of ACT THREE.’S A/W ’15 collection due to the velvet fabric. The color black makes it more dramatic too. When it gets colder, I can picture myself wearing this dress with a cardigan sweater, letting the Peter Pan collar peek out.

And now for my favorite part. Here’s a video my mom filmed of me traipsing around San Francisco in the three ACT THREE. dresses. (See the other two outfit posts here and here if you missed them.) It was really fun to wear dresses while exploring my favorite areas of the city. And you’ll get to see the final Oh My Drifter logo at the very end!

In other news, I had to recreate my YouTube channel because it was linked to my Drifter & the Gypsy Google+ page and I wasn’t able to change the name of the page to Oh My Drifter for the rebrand, so long story short I had to create a new one. If you were subscribed to my former YouTube channel, please subscribe to my new one. And if you were never subscribed to me, be sure to subscribe because I’ll periodically add more videos!
