Black with a hint of pink

Black has always been my go-to color, so when it was time for me to choose a dress for a lunch event for my husband’s job, I had to choose this particular Black Crochet Sleeve Dress.

It is not form fitted which was perfect for the type of event we were going to.  As a wife, I try always to look my best but dress appropriately.  I am a representation of my husband, so I always carry myself with class and dress classy.


The crochet sleeves on this dress added a unique style that I knew would make this dress stand out.   I added a thin braided belt to help show a little bit of my figure because having it flow made me look like I was pregnant and that is not a good look.

I have always been a fan of wearing black because to me, it is such a chic and classic color.  Black can be a color that you can wear all year long and wear it anywhere.  I have a lot of black outfits because it used to be the only color I could wear for work.

I used to be a bartender at a classy restaurant, and the owner thought it was a classier look for all of us to be in all black attire.  I did not complain because I had already had many black outfits in my closet.  Not to mention, I always tend to buy black before any other color or print.

After I left the restaurant field,  I went back into the medical/business world.  My new boss told me that they would prefer a business casual look and to keep the colors to a minimum.  I got lucky when it came to my work outfits because I already had enough clothes from my previous job, especially in the color black.


When it comes to wearing a solid color, it is easier to choose what shoes and accessories you want to wear with it, because everything matches with black.  I chose to use my all black dressy Nine West wedges because I knew that there was going to be much standing and I wanted to be comfortable.  I added my pink and black clutch to add a touch of color to my outfit.

When you decide to wear all black, it is always fun to add a pop of color, whether it is a bright bold color or a soft color like I did, you can never go wrong.  Have some fun by adding prints too!

There are so many different ways you can change a look on a black dress.  That is why I am a fan of wearing black.   For your convenience, I have also added different choices of black dresses and wedges for you to choose from below.
