I don't have a dress that is all black. For makeup I will just keep it simple. Not sure what I will do for my hair. For shoes, I will wear flats. Also it's a funeral for my old pastor/teacher so it will be a church funeral. Obviously this isn't me, the only difference is that the sleeves are shorter. And this jacket.
1mo I probably should've specified the dress goes to my knees. It was the closest match I could find on google.
1mo *****I should've found a better picture but it's a dress and again it goes to my knees, it's actually a little bit longer than the jacket and I plan to keep the coat on.***** ^^^^^ public service announcement read that so I don't specify that to every person.
Yes, it is appropriate. I wore a black and white dress (mostly black) to my grandmother's funeral. White, to celebrate what a good, full and long life she had lived, and black for mourning and sadness that she is gone. Most people wore black and white as well, but they kept it mostly black.
Maybe a bit too short (not conservative enough for a funeral). And also, the white striping could be too pertinent. You'd draw attention and at a funeral that's not the goal at all :o If you'd wear it than at least wear black pantyhose. Now there's really too much leg for the purpose :o
