The Little Black Dress.
Everyone woman has at least one Little Black Dress in their closet, always ready to bring out and throw on for any given occasion. The LBD is honestly the perfect dress because of its versatility, it can easily be dressed up or down. Also, let’s not forget about the automatic slimming effect… which is the best part ;).
The dress I’m wearing is from Bailey 44, and comes in both maroon and black. The best part is how fitted it is, being able to hug my curves while it also being a modest length (knee length). Having a big butt has it’s consequences…if the dress is too short it will ride up until some rear is visible which is why I always opt for longer lengths. Keep it classy, never scandy. The mesh cut-out detail on the waist and neckline gives the dress character, showing how it’s not an ordinary LBD but instead a statement of how a woman can be classy, empowering yet sexy at the same time.
I paired the dress with a 35 mm Christian Paul watch. I always opt for the smaller sized faced because of how small my wrists are. Big watches just look silly on me. I love the traditional yet contemporary design on the Hayman Luxe, which is the watch I’m wearing.
For shoes I paired the dress with black strappy Tommy Hilfiger heels.The shoes are from last season, but I found a similar pair on a discounted site for just $40, which is 60% off!!
I finished the outfit off with a black leather tote bag from Dagne Dover, one of my favorite handbag brands. Their bags have tons of little compartments such as a drink holder, tablet/laptop sleeve, little pen holders and much more! Dagne Dover makes the best durable bags for the working woman.
Until next time,
