Little Black Dress




I love color, but I also love having a few cute little black dresses in my closet too. This one has been hanging in my closet for three years…I know, I know. What was I waiting for?! I guess I was waiting for this adorable kate spade clutch to come along to wear with it. 🙂

This adorable Ooh La La makeup crossbody was just on the kate spade surprise sale. I typically don’t buy cutesy purses, but I loved the simple design – and I love makeup – and the price was right. $75! Couldn’t pass it up!

It was great celebrating Valentine’s Day a few days early with the hubs. Last Valentine’s Day was not the best for us, so this year we really celebrated us and our love for each other ❤

Hope everyone out there has someone to love today!

Little Black Dress Inspiration with Dailylook

The Little Black Dress. LBD. Do you have one? Or two or three or ten? Black is that universally flattering color for everyone. And who wouldn’t want to wear a color that flatters your figure? It’s a no brainer.

If you have followed me at all, you know I absolutely love color. So, I will admit, I do not bust out my LBDs very much. BUT…I have three great ones in my closet. One that is work appropriate with cap sleeves, a fun peplum with criss crossed back, and a body con with a little mesh at the top. If you do not own any black dresses and are a working girl like me, I suggest going with something that you could wear for work functions with maybe a sleeve and a length that works for your office culture.

On the other hand, if you want something a little more fun, I suggest going to the Dailylook to see their great LBD options. They have it all (yes, a few office appropriate, too)! I was recently inspired to put together a look.

The Little Black Dress

I have curves (cue All About That Bass…all the right curves in all the right places!), and sometimes, yes, I want to show them off. That’s why in this set I chose a great pencil dress with a slightly lower neckline. I tend to love to pair black with leopard. Leopard is a staple in my wardrobe – and if you are afraid of it, get over your fear! It’s the best! What else do I love? A great red lip. Lipstick Queen has the best lipsticks; it has quickly become my favorite brand of lipstick that actually lasts.

Dailylook not only has great options for LBDs, but basically everything. There is inspiration everywhere on their site. Don’t forget to pin your favorite looks and use them later when you are in fashion slump…and are doing the dreaded “I have nothing to wear” when you are staring at a closet full of clothes. (Guilty as charged!)

Another great feature – Shop By Body Type. When you are shopping online, don’t you always wonder how that would look on you? With this feature, hopefully it will help you understand the cuts of some of the clothes and whether or not they would work for you.

So happy LBD shopping to you!!
