“One is never over- or under-dressed with a little black dress.” -Karl Lagerfeld
Let’s talk a little about the LBD: The Little Black Dress. You all know that I’m a big black fan, so I have quite a few of these in my wardrobe. I wore a vintage LBD to my graduation a few weeks back and then very recently fell in love with this long-sleeved one I’m wearing here from Closet Clothing. I love anything with long sleeves and the leather peplum detail is just perfect. I feel that with any black dress, it can always be either dressed up or dressed down. For this look, I styled it with a beautiful vintage embellished jacket from Retro Rose Bazaar (which is available to purchase here) which made the whole look a little dressier. But equally I could have added a leather jacket, a floppy hat & flats and I would have had an ideal daytime look. That’s the thing about LBD’s, they’re the ultimate investment as there are so many ways to change them up. I also adore this Midi Dress from Asos, this Swing Dress from Missguided and this Fringe Dress from Nastygal. Shop more of my favourites below…
I’m off to Dublin in the morning with Tommy, to make a start on my Christmas Shopping. I know it’s only the beginning of December, but I feel like I’m so late starting! I’m very jealous of all you organised ones who have it finished or nearly finished at this stage. We’ll be staying the night in Dublin as I have a very exciting photo shoot with Stellar Magazine on Friday. Keep an eye on my Instagram (@retroflame) and Twitter to see how it goes.
Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
