The holiday season is a great excuse to get dressed up and enjoy the company of others. I was so thrilled when Racquel of Racquel always invited me to be part of her little black dress shoot for the holidays! Since starting The Blog Bloc earlier this year, I have met so many wonderful people and built a great rapport with the members, including Racquel so it was even more special when I found that members Britney and Ashley were part of it, too!
I’m always down for a collaborative shoot especially when there is an iconic style theme. For this concept, Racquel decided that every lady should wear their interpretation of a black dress.
Easy! I have so many little black dresses.
But wait, this was tough. I have so many little black dresses.
Because every lady should have at least one that they feel like a million bucks in. So when I’ve felt that way after trying on or wearing said black dress, I stockpile.
I also have black dresses that I wear based on mood. Is that weird? Well, when it came to choosing my LBD for the shoot, in true Boss Lady fashion, I decided to wear one of my favorite black sheath dresses from Crossroads, and pair with, you guessed it, a blazer… with satin lapels!
If you’re going straight from the office to a holiday gathering, this is my way to stay professional without sacrificing a little bit of elegance. Trade your work tote bag in for a chain bag. I’ve linked my splurge one and a few steals below to elevate your look.
Accessories go a long way, too. I am all for the tassels and baubles right now. I’ve collected several of my go-to black jewelry pieces over the years, but here are some that may be making their way into my wardrobe sooner than later (and maybe yours too).
You’re used to seeing just me on this blog, but I have to show the other ladies’ looks, each great fits to their personality!
Please share your favorite ways to style a little black dress in the comments!
