Time to Party: Dressing up the LBD

With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas parties on the horizon shortly thereafter, it’s time to start thinking about party attire! Last December I bought a fab sequined skirt, but haven’t worn it much since.

This year, I am adopting Sarah’s more classic approach, which is to invest in a little black dress (or use one you already have) and buy new accessories to dress it up to the particular occasion.

The LBD is the perfect blank canvas to start any look. Everybody needs a great black dress that they look and more importantly, feel great in. Accessories are the least expensive way to create different looks ensuring  you will wear the dress often and all year long.

I’ve had my eye on this Memo dress from J Crew:

J Crew’s Tall and Petite fittings ensure a great fit, and their clothes last well through lots of wear and dry cleaning. I think this dress would be a such a flattering fit.What do you think of it? It might be a keeper.

It is the season to sparkle and Old Navy has some fantastic accessories to glitz up the BLD. In store they have costume jewelry galore for the holidays for any little black dress, here are a few online finds:

sparkly belt

jeweled + pointed balled flats

They also have a fabulous color range of ballet flats.

Target of course, also has some fantastic and affordable accessories for the season:

gold necklace

gold sparkly clutch

Oh how the sparkly party season makes me happy!
