The Little Black Dress

I love little black dresses. There's just something so elegant and sexy about them.



 I feel like this one would be perfect for a fancy dinner date but at the same time I think it's versatile enough that you can dress it down.


I'm still playing around with the lighting and my photo setup.  So far I think this location gets the best light in the house.

I'm also trying a bold lip for the first time.  I'm normally a fan of nude/ my lips but better colors so this was definitely going outside my comfort zone.  It took a little bit of getting used to but I do like it.

Rimmel Apocalips

What I'm wearing:
LBD- from ASOS (similar)
Shoes- Jessica Simpson peeptoe pumps (similar)
Necklace- from my Etsy Shop
Lips- Rimmel Show Off in Big Bang

  9. You look just beautiful in this black dress! I love it.

    Also, you had asked me about Francesca's. I actually really love them. I have a few necklaces and a bunch of clothes from them. And I think the quality is pretty on par for what they charge. It's definitely better than F21 quality. I'd say they are probably like.. Zara as far as quality vs price. Hope that helps!

  50. Hey beautiful!

    WOW, what a beautiful post. You are stunning! I completely agree with your take on the little black dress. I believe every female should have at least one little black dress they can turn to. It can be suitable for pretty much ANY event. Dress it up with accessories and heels, or down with flats and an over sweater.

    Thank you for sharing! I am now following via GFC and Blogger. Let me know if you would like to do the same!

    Looking forward to future posts of yours!
