We all love a good LBD, but let’s face it sometimes it can get a little boring. A girl needs to switch it up sometimes! I’m always on the hunt for a good dress, that way, I’m ready for any occasion whether it be a Holiday party, hot date, or a night out with the gals. I am obsessed with midi dresses at the moment. So when I seen this little hot number on fevrie.com, I knew it would be a perfect addition to my dress collection!
This dress was just perfect! The cut out on the sides and the deep v-neck gives the dress a sexy touch, while the length still keeps it classy. It doesn’t end there! Even the back of the dress kept things interesting, as it gives the illusion that you’re wearing a two piece. I even like the visible dark trimmed zipper down the back. I thought that small detail gave the dress a little bit of an edge. Since the dress itself is such a statement piece on it’s own, I chose to keep everything else simple. I paired the dress with nude pumps that matched my neutral toned makeup and added a small silver necklace that was perfect for the neck line. This dress is ideal for a night out and with New Years right around the corner you’ll have the perfect excuse to rock this dress and turn some heads!

With the abundance of black dresses out there, you are bound to find the perfect LBD that flatters you. (I promise!)
So with Valentine’s Day sneaking up on us, I thought this was perfect timing for this post. I know what you’re probably thinking “isn’t red or pink more suitable for the occasion?” One might think so, but thats not necessarily the case for everyone. This is for my ladies who prefer the “all black everything” look and are not fans of bold colors like red or the femininity of pink. And that’s just fine! Like I mentioned earlier the LBD works for any occasion. Take a look at my LBD option for the day of love (aka Valentine’s Day):
Dress: American Apparel (here) // Belt: Love Culture (similar and here) // Shoes: Target // Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC
I wanted to go for a “va va voom” kind of look. After all, it is for Valentine’s Day so why not throw our significant other a bone and give them a little eye candy (wink). I thought this American Apparel dress was the perfect dose of sexy with its deep v-neck cut, while the length kept it looking classy! I added my gold chain front belt to accentuate my waist a little more, and opted for my black caged heels. I decided to throw in a little bit of color, so I went for a red lip (Ruby Woo red to be exact, it’s definitely one of my go to lip colors…you should check it out at your nearest MAC store.) If you’re someone who’s afraid of color this is a perfect way to experiment, go ahead and incorporate some color to your outfit by playing around with some lipstick…baby steps! Who knows, you might actually love it and start working that color into your wardrobe!
