A Dressy LBD + Chloe Designer Bag/Ray-Ban Giveaway!


Hello ladies

Right now most of you are thinking, black. Ugh. How can I wear black when it is 90+ degrees outside? Well, I wear mostly colors as you know, and have my eyes on a few white dresses, but now and again, I like to bring out my LBD for a night out. If you love designer handbags ( like Chloe) and Ray-Bans, you are going to want to get in on this awesome GIVEAWAY today! 





 Loving my hard to find leopard foldover clutch from Express.




New Coach Kitten heels with gold detailing and black bows.

I think just the thought of dark colors make some people reconsider their outfit for the day, as the temperatures heat up. There are those times where a nice LBD always makes one feel elegant and dressed up for dinner, a show, or event. I  wanted to wear this for our night out as it is one of my favorite black dresses in style and fabric. This dress, from White House Black Market, was purchased years ago to wear to a holiday event. Its design of a ruched bodice, and flowy nature of the dress appealed to me, as did the light chiffon material.

I decided to pair it with a stenciled black metal necklace ( could have easily have worn pearls) some similar styled large metal earrings, Coach pointed kitten heels with a bow ( because I love bows) and my new addition of a leopard clutch. I had been on the “hunt” for a leopard clutch, wanted one that didn’t look tacky, as they are out there, but also didn’t want to drop over $200 on a Claire Vivier one, even though I still love and admire those gorgeous bags when I see them!

    A LBD rarely dates and is always a go to if you want a special date night and I love yours. I can just picture you in some intimate jazz bar, savouring a glass of wine.

    The detail of the stencil necklace is beautiful but it’s the leopard clutch that seals the deal for me. You’re on the money with that one. Very stylish especially as I know exactly what you mean that some leopard prints look cheap.

      Thank you so much! This is a favorite gown of mine, as it is light and the fitted bodice is a fav. One other blogger showed this Express leaoprd clutch and I had to buy it that day, as I have been looking for awhile. Will see you tomorrow! xx

    I am much more likely to wear black than white. I love that you went with the leopard clutch. I think it makes the outfit.

    Jess, my LBD comes out whenever I want to feel perfectly polished, whether it’s winter, summer, spring or fall. It’s year-round style makes it a must for every well-dressed woman.

    A few years ago, I did a little post “Secrets of the Little Black Dress.” You might enjoy it:

    You look amazing in yours!!

    Cheers, M-T
