I’m constantly hunting for the perfect black dress. As I was preparing for graduation, job hunting and getting ready for interviews, I had the perfect dress in my mind. Since I was a fashion merchandising student and not a design student, I could not create my dream dress so I had to find it. As I was online shopping I came across my dream dress at Madewell. I’m not even kidding when I say dream dress, it was so perfect I’m pretty sure I fell off my bed when I saw it. It’s such a classic dress, I love the neckline because it’s perfect for statement necklaces. I love the hem length because it’s professional, but still fun and I love the cinched waist. Everything about it is perfect.
Even though I’m happily employed, I love having a classic dress like this in my closet that I can wear for future interviews, fashion events and let’s be honest, pretty much everything else. Plus I’m obsessed with this necklace. I wasn’t a big J.Crew shopper when this was released, but after seeing it everywhere I knew I had to get my hands on it. I finally found it on ebay and let me tell you, I’m in love. It’s such an amazing piece and makes even the most basic outfits fabulous.
Dress: Madewell (old, similar and love this one). Necklace: J.Crew. Heels: Ann Taylor(old, similar and love this one). Bag: Botkier. Watch: Juicy Couture(old, love this one). Bracelet: Henri Bendel. Sunnies: Ray-Ban.
