|Wool Wrap Dress Diane Von Furstenberg | Necklace and Bracelets Forever 21 | Black Ulltra Patent Pumps Steve Madden|
Another rainy day and an all-black outfit. This time, however, I feel really inspired to do a series of post with DVF wrap dresses, as I have collected quite a few different types. They are quite versatile, and I could not help putting on my black wool wrap dress today to stay warm and so I could wear the Chanel purse strap inspired necklace along with it. I love how this dress also has pockets and a very simple silhouette. This dress is very basic, and can go with just about every accessory and pair of shoes I own, hence the appeal of an LBD. I think the necklace is appropriate in referencing not only Chanel in terms of the handbag straps, but also in wearing the dress as tribute to her setting off the trend wearing a black dress as something chic and not only restricting it for funerals.
I should digress that most of my outfits revolves around my outerwear, which at this moment primarily consists of black pieces. I am trying to invest in other coats and jackets that are not black, but so far I have yet to find anything that I have to have in order to wear it when it is cold or wet outside. I am looking forward to the sales coming up on winter gear, and one day I hope to find a North Face parka or fleece jacket, thrifted or new, that is not black. I also am always on the hunt for a classic Burberry camel trench coat, but until then I make do with black outerwear. I have not been thrifting in awhile, but I know once I get paid I'll be itching to go just to see what I will find. I am also in the middle of purging my closet in order to make room and let go of what I haven't worn. I'd rather get rid of things I don't wear or am tired of instead of buying more hangers and storage space!
