perfect fitting black dress

I wore this outfit to a funeral last week and was debating on whether or not to mention this fact simply because I don't want to be a "downer". 
However, I decided it's a part of life and "What do I wear to a funeral?" is a question I get all the time from clients. Also, when I am in their closets there always seems to be a long ill-fitting black skirt or dress hiding way in the back. When asked why it's there, the response is always the same. "It's my funeral dress or skirt." 
Why do we feel like we shouldn't look good when attending a funeral?
My suggestion...purchase a really great fitting dark dress or skirt (one that you would wear all the time), add a cardigan and simple accessories to look great and still be appropriate.

I would also wear this outfit to work in a heartbeat.
