I hope everyone had a great weekend. Last week ended horribly for me due to dental problems. I usually go to the salon on Saturdays to do makeup but because I was in so much pain, I stayed in and cooked for my man ( I know, he stills get home cooking when I’m sick). Anywho, I had an event for my firm to go to at a Restaurant last night so I decided to put a little pizzaz into my look. Even though I was feeling horrible.
I stuck with all black (it never fails me).
The black sequin dress came from FOREVER21 Plus last year end of season. It was originally $30.00 but I got it for under $15 due to it being out of season. I just held on to it until it was an appropriate time to wear it.
I added a silver glitter belt from OLD NAVY to give it a little something extra.
My Black Sequin pumps are from Bakers. I got them a while ago.
My fishnets are from a street vendor near Bowling Green Station in NY.
NOW MY FAVORITE PART. MY TRENCH
My coat is from Dress to Kill Inc.
This coat comes in two colors (black and red). It has an exciting corset detailing in the back. They say it can double as a dress but I prefer to solely wear it as a coat.
It retails for $119.00 for regular size
$129.99 for plus sizes
