LBD, Watercolors and a Statement Necklace.

Yesterday was the second day of Dresses for Create 28. I am a day late but just like my very versatile, must-have Striped Dress I showed you on Monday, I wanted to show you a Classic Sheath LBD today, which I wore to work. I will follow with the next prompt which is Sneakers on tomorrow's post, so stay tuned. =)
This elegant, Sleeveless Black Sheath from The Loft has been in my closet for a few years (I got it on clearance) but I haven't worn it a much as I can. It has little lace palettes on the shoulders and styled the right way can be worn to a cocktail party and even a wedding. For work, I paired it with Blue, rather Navy to be exact. Now I would normally stay away from pairing Black with Navy but my Navy Jacket is a Watercolor Print. The Gray/Off White part breaks up the Navy. I got more Watercolor also, as I brought a second pattern to this Outfit by wearing my Watercolor Python Pumps (love those Cone Heels). A subtle third pattern is the ribbing/striping of the Tights. I am glad to report this outfit is from earlier this Spring when it was still chilly and tights-weather. As I am currently typing this I am bare-legged (gasp) in my pretty Skirt. Spring may be here after all?! I wore a Stunning Minty, Briolette+Cubic Zirconia Statement Necklace because I definitely felt it complimented the dress, perfectly. Speaking of the Dress, I found several similar Sheaths for 80$ or under so look on the links below. I love ALL of them. The Blazer here is part of my Top 10 items, also. What do you think?
Navy+White Watercolor Blazer w/ Tuxedo-Style Faux Leather Lapel: H&M (New) (very similar by Missguided, great deal, love this), (gorgeous option by CK under 10 bucks!!), (similar, all navy by Rag & Bone, Splurge).
Mint, Briolette Statement Necklace w/ Mint Stones & Silver Cubic Zirconia Stones: Forever 21 (similar by Kate Spade, great deal, love this), (similar by Charter Club, best deal, love this), (similar, tiered briolette option, fantastic deal).
Black Beaded Bracelet w/ Pearl, Crystal & Coin Charms: White House Black Market (very similar, great deal, love this), (similar, love this), (fun option w/ Domo beads, best deal).
Black, Lightly-Ribbed, See-through Tights: Omsa.
