LBD: Look 1

They always say, “you can never have too many pairs of jeans.” Well you know what else you can’t have too much of? A little black dress. It’s just as simple, always looks great and it can be just diverse as your favorite pair of jeans.

I’d like to start a special series within this blog dedicated to our beloved LBD’s. I noticed that I have plenty myself so I’d like to share the many ways that I wear them.

I wore this little number from Forever21 a few weeks ago at a black & gold themed party. I like the long sleeves and if the lighting wasn’t so bad you could see the detail of the asymmetrical point in the front. I paired it with a gold link necklace and my favorite black and gold Coach watch. The looks was completed with black suede Jennifer Lopez heels that I purchased from Khol’s a few years ago.

Forever21 no longer has this dress available, but you can purchase a similar LBD here.

Well that’s the look for now. Deuces!!

It’s cold out there.

Hello there everyone!! I hope you all are bundling up and keeping warm. Do know that although it’s necessary to pile on the layers that doesn’t mean you can’t layer with style. If I’ve learned to do so, you can to. Here’s a recent example of my winter style.

Now everyday basics are the key for any style and for the most part I collect mine from Old Navy. Their items are wearable at any size and are appropriate for any occasion. I recently purchased this v-neck, striped sweater dress in navy. Currently it is on clearance and they are offering and additional amount off clearance items. But you have to hurry because the offer and dress won’t last.

I paired the dress with a basic pair of navy blue leggings that I purchased from Forever 21. I have several pairs of these leggings, that are offered in an assortment of colors, which I find convenient for my everyday style.

To complete the look, I zipped up these Unisa Toshio boots I got from DSW. These brown boots have been a complete lifesaver for me this winter. They’ve kept me warm and they go with everything, and yes I pair them with black ensembles, I’ll discuss that in another post. The stretch material is an added benefit for my wide calves as well.

Now if you like you can add flair to this look with a wide belt around the waist or a simple necklace. I’m currently working on my accessories skills and when I get it together I’ll share some ideas with you.

So that’s it for now. I’ll see you next time. Deuces!!
