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

one little black dress white white bag

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.

In observance of NWGHAAD, we would like for you to join our 2014ย Rock the Red Pumpยฎ (#RocktheRedPump) Campaign! The campaignโ€™s goal is to generate conversation both online and offline about the issue of HIV/AIDS and how it affects women.”

Bloggers can participate in the event by registering and blogging on March 10 ย about what makes HIV/AIDs awareness important to you.

Everyone else can participate by wearing red pumps on March 10 to raise awareness, uploading photos to the Red Pump Project Facebook page, and using the official #RockTheRedPump hashtag!

So mark you calendars and get ready to rock those red pumps on March 10 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

2014-02-15 14.54.09

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.

Throwback: My Little White Dress

2013-02-07 21.42.32 (2)

Today’s late little blurb comes courtesy of my little white dress from once upon a time. A little white dress is almost just as versatile as a little black dress, so it’s definitely an item that can make your wardrobe feel ten times larger!

Unfortunately, this little white dress was a size too small for me and ripped in the back, so I no longer have it. I’m definitely keeping my eye out for a similar dress though.

All in all, have a great weekend and a happy early Valentine’s day everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

Bad Fashion Choices: The Striped-Rose Dress

Image

Sooooo, this dress. I got this dress because my cousin was getting rid of some of her clothes, and even though I didn’t like it, I took it. I had the mindset of “more clothes is better than less clothes.” This was a time in my life where I would buy clothes that I didn’t even like just because they were three dollars, a dollar, fifty cents, etc. just for the sake of having a larger wardrobe.

My boyfriend likes this dress, so I held onto it for a lot longer than I would have, but here we are three years later and I’ve recently gotten rid of it. Why? Because my new mindset is “why would I wear something that I don’t even like??”. Granted, I do still have a few items in my closet that I don’t like, but that’s mostly because those items are my warmest ones, and well, I do have to stay warm. In the future as I buy things here and there, they will be replaced and I will get rid of them.

Have you ever worn clothes that you don’t like? If so, ask yourself…..why?

Style Dare: Leg Warmers

Snow in Alabama? Everyone is confused

Snow in Alabama? Everyone is confused

Leg warmers = The 80s. Everyone knows this. BUT with temperatures this winter hitting a record low, a pair of leggings can help to keep your little ankles nice and warm while adding a unique pop of color to your outfit.

This photo is from back in 2010 when I first knit the leg warmers.

Pro Tip: No leggings? No problem. Try chopping the sleeves off of an old baggy sweater. You weren’t wearing it anyway! (Admit it)

Kitty is quite uninterested with today's fashion choice.

Go ahead and rock a pair of leg warmers. I dare you.
