Working the LBDs

While outfit planning recently, I came across a couple of dresses rarely worn that could be layered. Yesterday's dress is a sexy going-out LBD for example, complete with pleated skirt and halter top. Today's is a more proper LBD, with the added excitement of sheerness over a beige slip.
Black scarf - Present from Mom, Pink sweater - Banana Republic, Black patent belt - Primark, Dress worn as skirt - Charlotte Russe?, Black tights - Target?, Shoes - Missoni for Target
Do you remember when these dresses where everywhere...maybe five years ago? I remember seeing Katie Holmes wearing one and just thought it was gorgeous.
Katie Holmes has her moments, though everybody seems to hate on her.
I definitely wanted this sweater to be more of a girly, lighter pink to really juxtapose with the black, but also play with the lace of the dress. So, meh, this didn't work out exactly like I wanted it to, but it was another outfit to wear my new heels with, so there you go.
Yay for utilizing every part of your closet, no matter how mediocre the results.


  1. Love the skirt! Looks great with the tights.

  2. Thanks! I'll have to plan a night out so I can wear it just as a dress.
