How To Dress Like You’re In A Funeral Scene From a Movie

long black trench coat - black hat- black shoes

What I’m Wearing…

* Vintage long black trench coat… similar styles here
* Leather wrap belt by ADA Collection {was a recent gift}
* Vintage black hat was my grandma’s… see it here and here
* Vintage black sunglasses
* DIY T-strap Ankle Bow heels

I found this long black trench at a thrift shop in Oregon nearly 15 years ago… wait, maybe it was longer than that… but I just re-found it in my closet after forgetting about it for years and years. It always felt too long for most styles, which is probably why I forgot about it, or actually just never thought of it… but long trenches, particularly oversized long trenches have been spotted on runways and street style shots lately and suddenly feel fresh and new again.

The lining is the perfect Burberry plaid print, but there’s no label which makes me believe it’s not authentic, but you never know. Regardless, it’s a nice, warm coat I found for $15 years and years ago at a thrift shop. The original belt is missing so I have to get creative with one of my own or wear it open, but I love the look of it here as more of dress buttoned up and cinched at the waist with the leather wrap belt. It reminds me of Jessica Lange‘s character from American Horror Story Coven or any woman you ever see in a funeral scene in a movie {black leather gloves & a dotted mesh veil optional}. I pulled this outfit together strictly to show off my DIY shoes last week but now it has a completely new meaning based on my title, which of course, makes me giggle but is so so accurate.

    Love the chic feel of this outfit. I feel like it is something that you would see in the 50’s with that very classic feel. I absolutely love it. Great job, and the shoes are perfect.

    O.K., I’ve had a very long trench (light cream/khaki) stored away for about 20 years or more. On sale, with tags. As I recall, I just couldn’t pass it by, as it was an excellent price. I’ve actually been waiting all of these years for the longer trench to be back in style. Well, today is the day! Thanks for reminding me!
