I don't think I've ever had bad luck with a Net-a-Porter sale and this Rag & Bone dress and these Oscar de la Renta earrings are further proof. Finding a black dress that's conservative enough to be work-friendly, yet interesting enough to wear out is kind of insane. As for the earrings, well, given my hairstyle, I've found I have to "go big or go home" if I want them to be visible at all. And since we're talking about Oscar de la Renta, can I add that I'm kind of falling in love with all of his jewelry? Between the beautiful ring B got me last year and these newly-acquired earrings, I'm thinking I'm going to have to start collecting.

Hermès, Madewell, Amrita Singh, and Kenneth Jay Lane bangles
Theyskens Theory pumps (old, another great pair here)

Shop the look!

Those earrings, oh my gosh! Those are a work of art in themselves! They're so very you, though. And I love the simplicity of that purse as well.

The cut and details on the dress is very unique and looks lovely on you. It's the earrings that really caught my eye though. Stunning.

What beautiful details and structure to this dress! I love the earrings too! Ever since I chopped all my hair off, I've found myself gravitating toward bigger earrings too!
