Can’t go wrong with a LBD

In a season that has been inundated with neons, bright colors and prints…it’s nice to know that despite the “trends”, a perfect LBD (Little Black Dress) will always be in style.
With this post I wanted to let you know even though you may think you’ve got nothing to wear….if you’ve got a LBD in your closet, you’re more than prepared for any occasion ;)
Also, I am starting to learn more about photography so you guys are essentially my guinea pigs when it comes to this “work”…I wanted to make the dress stand out even more so I whited out the background which kind of whited out some of my face but I think it looks kind of cool. That might just be me being totally and utterly biased….so, let me know your thoughts. I am always eager to learn new tricks and get better at blogging, so leave me your tips, comments, criticism and tools ;)

I wore:
Zara skater/flare dress (2 years old)
Charcoal gray bling necklace: purchased it at Loehmann’s.
H&M Faux patent black belt
Shamballa Bracelets
Christian Louboutin Miss Boxe Wedges

That’s it for this post…and remember, when you’ve got “nothing” to wear, keep it simple and go with your staple pieces: black dress, black pumps and some fun jewelry…you’ll be ready for any event on your calendar ;)

XOXO,
Martha

    So pretty I love the shape of this dress, very classic! You remind me of Audrey Hepburn. Also, I don’t think anyone ever gets sick of seeing Louboutin’s! :)

    • August 4, 2012 / 6:39 pm

      Lol!!
      Lisa…I just simply adore you…you and I are so much alike ;)
      I agree with you on the Louboutins….I personally can never see too many or too often ;)
      Thank you for your Audrey compliment…she was a true and classy beauty….and I take that compliment as a fab honor.
      XOXO

    Funny, I’ve been all about colour this summer, but just wore an LBD yesterday for the first time in a long time. I sometimes forget how classic and sophisticated it can look. You look fabulous in that dress! I really love the style on you! The white background effect of your photos is really cool!

      Lol! Me too…that’s why I did this post…I think we all get caught up with the trends that we forget that classics are classics for a reason ;)
      I’m going to keep working on my photography and edits but it was fun to play around with it for this post.

    You are so true, it is a way out. When it came into style advice, LDB is the best answer, ok that’s my way out for any girls who came to me and ask for some style tips LOL ;0

    How are you dear? love to see your dancing and captured :)
