Everyone needs a go-to black dress to throw on at a moment’s notice, for day as well as evening. I found this Rachel Roy dress several years ago and still wear it often! Today may be our last perfect day as far as weather goes in Chicago. It’s 72 degrees and mostly sunny. When it gets cooler this evening I will put on a cardigan. Today I can wear black suede sandals and carry a black pony clutch – the kind of accessories that are too hot for summer. Maybe this is what it is like to live in LA!
Dress: Rachel Roy, no longer available. This Rachel Roy Fold Waist Dress $498 may be another one I need for fall!
Jewelry: Vintage Black Cuff Bracelet. I think this Trouvé Magnetic Strip Leather Bracelet $58 would look cool with a simple black dress.
Handbag: Black Haircalf and Leather Clutch, no longer available. This Halston Heritage June Haircalf Foldover Clutch, $345 is similar.
Shoes: Steven Campbell Suede Wedge Sandals, no longer available. See this Dolce Vita ‘Sali’ Sandal, $219 in black.
