Special occasions are always, in my opinion, exhilarating to dress up for. I am enamored with the idea of picking out a special outfit just for the event and doing a little extra primping right before to get ready. That’s often times where a little black dress comes into play (or LBD as I love to refer to it). Your LBD can take you anywhere when dressed up (or down) with the right accessories. This LBD took me on a fantastic anniversary celebration with my husband this past week. Typically, I would gravitate to a simpler LBD but I have to say, now that I have one with gorgeous ornate details, I may never go back to plain. I love that this dress has so many pretty details that your accessories are almost required to be minimal in comparison. This dress was complimented easily by the swipe of a little lipstick (YSL #52) and my favorite nude heels.
By the way, I know these heels are an investment. It took me a while to pull the trigger on them. However, I have had them for a number of years now and I can confidently say that they are some of the most comfortable I own. You will get the wear out of them! I can see myself wearing them for the next ten years! That, my friends, is the sign of a great pair of heels!
I have to say, I received so many compliments from lovely people around us at the restaurant that night about my appearance that anniversary night. I think my dress stole the show. The best part is that it on MEGA sale right now! The only problem is, I wish it came in more colors!
What are some of your favorite things to wear to a special occasion?
PS- Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard all about the Nordstrom sale. I will be *hopefully* shopping it this week and bringing you reviews of some products. However, items are selling out at lightning speed (including some of the ones that were on my wishlist…sad face). So….HURRY! See my picks here.
