Baby’s in black
“When Kelly Dennis goes out with her infant daughter, she often notices people giving her looks. As in: What kind of a mother are you?”
“Dennis’s crime? Dressing little Willow in the color black. Black skinny jeans, black tops, black boots, black onesies, black yoga pants — she has them all.”
