Hybrid apparel: LBD

Last night I went to a Little Black Dress party a friend was hosting. I love gatherings of the girls and the LBD theme, in my opinion, is the easiest to follow. If you don’t have a LBD it’s not hard to find one at any store, be you preppy, punk, classic, or scandalous.

I currently have two LBDs. One is long and perfect for a warm spring or cool summer day and the other was a little more va-va-voom than I felt was necessary for the night. I was about to go for the long dress when I saw my new cardigan and got an idea—remember how I said it had great wrapping potential?

I like how it comes down a little in the front– an unexpected touch!

 A quick belt job cinched everything in and I never once thought it would come undone. I wore actual underwear last night, but for the (obvious) purpose of these photos I wore my high waisted American Apparel Cotton Shorts and a bandeau; if you are a bit nervous you can very easily wear something more covering than a bra and panties under this outfit without it affecting the fit.

Oh. And I cannot forget the shoes! I got these darlings a few days after the Sam Edelman find. They’re by the LA company Seychelles, but at the time I wasn’t familiar with them. I could just tell by the feel and the style that I was probably getting some expensive wedges for the price of a coffee. And, just like the Edelman boots, I think these might have been worn once or twice.

It's nice to see how the other side, the tall side, lives

    • Thanks! Luckily the Goodwill I work has relatively affluent towns surrounding it so the quality of the items is pretty good, and over the years I’ve gotten good at spotting items!
