Striped Cardi Party

little black dress striped cardigan

One great thing about wearing a versatile piece like a little black dress is that you can easily improvise new looks without even trying. I’ve had this cardigan for years and NEVER thought of pairing it with a dress. I’ve always worn it with a t-shirt and jeans. I guess sometimes we limit the roles for certain items in our closets, but if you want to maximize the potential (why am I starting to sound like a finance seminar? lol) of your wardrobe, you’ve gotta think outside the box and wear your clothes differently!

LBD Look: Sock it to Me

I admit it. I’m already starting to run out of ideas! This is the fifth LBD look, I’ve put together for this blog and I’ve already done a lot of my favorites. ( One of my friends at church even asked if I only wear black dresses now :P) We know what that means:

Time to get creative.

One trend I’ve seen on a lot of the fashion blogs is the socks + heels look that I’ve always wanted to try, so I figured there’s no time like the present ๐Ÿ™‚

Adding a white sweater as well gave it kind of a school girl look, but it worked for me.

LBD Look: It’s Black, It’s White

When wearing a little black dress, you always run the risk of having kind of a bleak “funeral” type look if you aren’t careful with your accessories. For this LBD look, I paired black and white accessories with my dress to brighten up my look. I love how I was able to find a perfect belt and shoe match. I’ve had them both in my closet for years, but never wore them at the same time. My LBD was the first to ever bring them together ๐Ÿ™‚

This white purse is my favorite. It was definitely the star of ย the show today because its bright color changed the whole look dramatically. Oh, and this is the first time I wore my lace gloves in public. They made me feel like a perfectly classy lady.

LBD Look: Red Velvet

So my red pumps make yet another appearance. Too soon? Nah. ๐Ÿ˜›

I find that one of the easiest ways to accessorize a black dress is to throw in a pop or two of red. It has to been done subtly though. You don’t want to overdo it.

I also took the liberty of layering a plain black tee underneath by LBD to give it a sleeved look. Can you tell? ๐Ÿ™‚

The dress is actually sleeveless with a deep V-shape in the back. Adding the t-shirt gives me just the amount of added modesty that I want.

LBD Look: The Cable-Knit Sweater

little black dress with cable sweater

It was extremely cold this Sabbath. So cold that extreme measures and layers had to be taken to ensure my warmth. I had a totally different outfit in mind that morning, but once I found out what the temperature was (28 degrees Fahrenheit when I woke up, 36 when these photos were taken) I changed everything and started over. I actually believe in comfort over fashion, and I believe you can have both simultaneously. Plus, I like keeping all of my extremities.

Let me explain just how cold it was. It was so cold, that I went through all of my tights and decided that none of them were warm enough. I actually wore a pair of leggings with my dress and slid a pair of black socks underneath to make them look like tights. Nobody noticed. And if they did, I wouldn’t care.

I layered this warm cabled sweater over my little black dress to keep me warm and toasty. Would you believe that I got this sweater for just $2? Apparently even though temperatures are hovering around the low 30s, stores are flushing out their winter items right now to make room for their spring collections. Silly stores and their schedules.

Meet my Little Black Dress

IMG_2402

The idea for this blog came after I bought this dress from J.C. Penney. I bought it for $25 with a gift card I got for Christmas from my cousin. I’ve recently finished college and am preparing to begin my teaching career, so currently I don’t have much money. I’ve also been weeding out all of the clothes that I own that I hate, so much closet is looking a little thin right now. But that doesn’t mean I can’t still have fun with my wardrobe, right?

My philosophy when it comes to fashion is life is too short to wear clothes you don’t like.ย I keep what I like, and donate the rest.

A lot of people think that if you’re into fashion you need to constantly be out shopping and spending money, on a never-ending quest for newest, latest thing. I disagree. I think all you need are a few key pieces that you like and few accessories to go with them. There should be a point where you’re actually satisfied with the clothes that you own and it shouldn’t take too much money to get there.

I’m starting this blog because I’m on a journey to create as many looks as possible with this little black dress and I want to share them with you.

So, let’s meet this dress!

The dress comes with its own little bow belt, which I find to be adorable and just perfect for it. I also love the fullness of the skirt. It has just enough fabric that it gives the dress a very girly feel and make me want to twirl around. I’m wearing it here with my favorite pair of shoes and one of my favorite bags as well.
