Little Black Dress
Black boat neck dress / Magenta tights / Cap-toe heels / Betsey Johnson heart necklace / Revlon lipstick in “Cherries in the Snow”
Every girl has one (or should have one)- a little black dress. This is my work-appropriate version, mind you. It’s a basic black sheath dress with pockets that works well for a variety of occasions. I’ve worn it to a funeral (sadly), a brunch and tea event with my college’s President’s wife (figure that out one), and now here on the blog. Since it’s more on the conservative side, I thought I’d make it more fun with some bright tights, jewels and lipstick. Now let’s just hope this is the last time I have to wear tights since spring weather should be creeping up on us anytime now.
A dress with pockets= win.
What ways do you dress up your favorite little black dress?
I like how simple this is, especially looks amazing with the bold lips and tights! I have a few simple version and dress them up with accessories sometimes. Have a great week. 🙂 /Madison
Your LBD is so versatile the sleeves are a good length, I LOVE that it has pockets! Great way to have some fun with the tights, necklace, and lipstick. You could always do some fun shoes with it too, or a cute belt!
I need more fun shoes, that’s for sure
SO PRETTY you are! I love the raspberry tights – and how they match your lips! Nice job of spicing up a LBD 🙂
thank you so much!
I love the colored tights, I’m always hesitant to wear them because I don’t have thin legs, but I think you styling is on point. And that HAIR of yours is so pretty.
Aw thank you so much!
love your use of color! (ps- i agree! pockets are the best)
Rachel you look so pretty! LOVE the LBD, and love how you accessorized it 🙂
aw thank you Annie!
I love adding coloured tights, for me an BD requires bling….lots of jewellery…Or a funky pair of coloured heels.
I think all dresses should come with pockets! The colored tights look really cute with your LBD!
you’re so right about the pockets! thanks
