all black everything

I just signed up for a Bloglovin account - not sure how to use it, but I'm sure I can figure it out! Anyway, 
This weekend I unfortunately had to go to a funeral. I'm the type of person who always cries at funerals even if I didn't know the person, hence why my face isn't in these shots after we got home (nobody wants to see that!). However, despite the sad occasion, I did realize I really like this outfit and will hopefully be reusing it for work. The dress is a super soft jersey material sheath dress that can be worn belted or unbelted (I prefer belted). The sleeves have a very pretty pleating which was not captured in photos. The jacket might be my best fitting Theory jacket off the rack (I personally do not think I need to get the sleeves shortened, what do you think? Do you think I should or keep them the way they are?) And of course I love pulling out my Tiffany's bead necklace for an updated look on classic pearls, because they arent very appropriate for my everyday wear. 
Jacket: Theory Gabe B, 00 (here)
Dress: from Saks Off 5th
Belt: from Ann Taylor skirt
Shoes: Liz Claiborne via DSW
Necklace: Tiffany (here)

  2. I'm always overly emotional at funerals too. It's like I feel the family's pain and I'm sad for the ones that were close the person.

    Hope you enjoy Bloglovin'!

  4. Sorry to hear that you had to go to a funeral, they are always so hard. What you wore was definitely appropriate.
