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!

Sheer tights will ensure that you legs look smooth and sleek in your equally smooth and sleek LBD.
3. A Great Purse
On days when you don’t have time to put much thought into your LBD look, make sure you grab a nice purse! If you can find a bag nice enough, it make everything else you’re wearing look that much better.
4. The Right Belt
Even if the rest of your outfit is perfect, adding the wrong belt can throw the whole look off. Make sure you take your time and pick out a belt that compliments both the dress and your figure while tying the outfit together.
5. Great Hair
Honestly, sometimes great hair = confidence. And confidence is the best accessory you could ever wear with a little black dress 🙂
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.
