Suiting Season

I promise this isn't another navy suit, its really black, but since its got flecks of burgundy and teal running through the fabric it reads almost navy in photos!

Though it is another new suit...see why I am trying to shop less this month! I picked up this beautiful color flecked fabric, just my size, and beaded details too! suit over Christmas. I think I actually bought it (online) on boxing day, so there is that...I snuck in one last suit purchase before January! Well winter is suit season after all, and this one was much too good to pass up. It was one of those cases of not really many measurements and less than stellar photos for the listing, so I was so pleased when the suit arrived and was in great condition and fit perfectly! It does look like once upon a time someone put some tiny double ended darts in the front and they have since been let out, but it's not too noticeable and with a good steaming (though I am currently without a steamer) I think the remnants of the folds would disappear. Or I may put the darts back in as the front is a tiny bit big so I'll think on it.

For its first wearing I decided to highlight the burgundy flecks in the weave of the suit and pair it with burgundy gloves and accessories. I wore these same accessories with my navy and ivory Lilli Ann suit back in the fall so this outfit almost feels like cheating since it is so similar!

I hope you have all had a great week so far, it's nearly the weekend again! I am going to see Hidden Figures with my parents tonight so that should be super fun as I have really been looking forward to
seeing it. I'm sure I'll have a mini review of the costumes up soon :)
