Spice up your LBD

What girl doesn’t rely on her precious LBD on a Saturday night!? Especially if plans land on your lap last minute and you are rushing to get dressed! LOL. It seems that I have a closet full of black dresses and I know exactly why. I love a nice black dress because it is the easiest thing to put on when you are in a rush. The best part about wearing that little black dress is that you can virtually wear any pair of shoe and still look like a million bucks. The easiest way to spice up that dress? Wear a hot smoking pair of shoes of course!

The Outfit:

My lovely sister gifted this piece to me a while back and quite frankly I forgot I had it. When I pulled this dress out, I knew I wanted to wear a stand out pair of shoes. The shoes?! These blazing HOT shoes I found at Shoedazzle the other day for $20.00! I almost hit the floor when I saw the price. This has got to be the easiest outfit I have put together in a few days. I added a red lip, a black bag & big big curls. 

Outfit Total: $22.50

  • Dress: Gift

The Velvet Little Black Dress – Crushing over it.

SONY DSC

Hope your year is going great. So far, I lucked out on this gorgeous black velvet dress that I paid a whopping $2.50!! Yes, I know. I so love this dress because I secretly love velvet. I know that you must be careful with velvet because it is such a thick fabric. If you do not wear it correctly you risk looking heavier than you really are. There are a million ways that I want to wear this dress.

Outfit Details

I was going bar hoping with my family so I decided to keep it simple this time but I already have in mind a few other ways I plan on wearing it. I wore my gorgeous “velvet” like snake print heels because the fabric on the shoes looked really nice with the dress combined. I wasn’t going to wear a necklace but my boyfriend insisted that I wear one because it looked “too simple”      ( little did he know that is what I wanted ). Since I take his input into consideration I wore this gold and black necklace and I wrapped my long chain around my hand to make it look like a necklace and ring together. I kept simple by wearing my favorite clutch/purse and a hot pink lip.

Outfit Total: $30.00

  • Dress: $2.50
  • Shoes: $25.00 (On Sale)
  • Clutch: $2.50

Happy Fashion.

The LBD – Military Inspired

SONY DSC

The year is coming to a full close and I must admit it has been a good year for me so far. I have had my share of ups and downs but that is what life is all about. Life will hit you with curve balls and it is up to you to fight back or let it take over your life. However, I am strong women so I always fight back and I always come back stronger. I thought to myself, what would be the best way to portray my fighting spirit? Well, of course a military inspired outfit.

The Outfit

I found this dress at Goodwill the other day and I knew I had to make it mine. I love anything that is black and gold; and I love it even more if it is a cute LBD. This is one of those few LBD’s that is truly a standout and a showstopper. I kept the outfit fairly simple by adding ankle straps, a black coat and a red lipstick. This whole outfit was purchased at Goodwill, what can I say, I love to shop at Goodwill.

Outfit Cost: $23.00

  • Dress: $3.00
  • Coat: $12:00
  • Shoes: $8.00

Happy Fashion.
