Classic Black Dress




Black Button Up Dress: Banana Republic. Tan Peep Toes: Alfani. Pearl with Rose Bracelet: Forever 21.



This dress is another one of my weekend outlet finds. Banana Republic had a 40% off sale, so this was a fairly decent price. I paired it with classic pearls and a tan pump to elongate the leg line. A little school teacher-y, but it suits me well.

Nothing like a classic black dress with pearls. The fit is really good on you.

Great find, school teacher-y is just fine. You are right too, I would wear that to my classroom.=)

Good find, I like the way it makes your waist look.

There is nothing wrong with school teacher-y if done well. And you, my girl, do it very well indeed.

Loving the dress!

I love the dress! Do you have a link to it anywhere? I can't find it on the BR site, and a quick google search isn't helping!

Cristina said...

What a fun little black dress.

Londyn said...

Joanne -

Unfortunately, I don't have a link - I got it from an outlet so my assumption is that it's no longer being sold except for clearance or outlet centers. Sorry! :(

I don't think you really look like a school-teacher. And if so, a dressy, classy, polished, pretty school teacher. I love this Black Shirt-Dress with the flaring skirt, Banana Republic is one of my most favorite brands. It can get real expensive but it's worth it when they have promotions, clearane and/or sales. Their clothes are so well-made, chic, classic, quality for sure. =)

If you decide to come to Michigan sometime, Londyn, you should let me know at least a week in advance or so. I would love to meet you, do dinner and drinks and surely go for some shopping. We would have sooooooo much fun. We have similar styles too, so. ;-)
