Striped Cardi Party

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!

2. Sheer Tights

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

LBD Look: Red Velvet

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

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? πŸ™‚

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.

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.Β 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!

Purse: Lulu

Tights: George

Shoes: Mossimo

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.
