A Not-So-Boring Little Black Dress

Don’t want a boring LBD look? Simply add show-stopping accessories to your little black dress to take it up a notch!

To preface this post, I’d like to start by saying please ignore my pasty white legs. I’m in serious need of a tan, ASAP. It’s bad. But anyway, this dress! Recently I picked up a few new off-the-shoulder pieces to add to my wardrobe. Other than this top from a past fall outfit, I really didn’t have any off-the-shoulder items to speak of. Not only did this baby fit the case, but it’s also a midi length to boot! (Midi is when a dress or skirt hits below the knees but above the ankles.) All kinds of new things for me.

This. clutch. is. so. clutch. Y’all. I can’t even. I’ve wanted the infamous Clare V leopard haircalf baby for as long as I can remember. But with the hefty pricetag, I really couldn’t comprehend spending that much on a clutch that I wouldn’t be using everyday. If I’m going to be spending that much money on a specific item it’s going to be on an everyday bag from my favorite designer, Rebecca Minkoff. But, alas, I found this cute clutch! It’s an exact lookalike and under $50!

To finish off my look, I went for statement sunnies and simple strappy shoes that have a little sparkly tint to them. Swoon!

    Loving everything about this outfit!! The dress, the clutch, YOUR HAIR! That braid is so amazing, and looks super pretty! Also, I spotted this clutch and for some reason passed it up, but now I’m thinking I need to add it to my wardrobe!

    I just love how you’ve accessorized this LBD, classic and perfect for summer evenings! I’m with you on the Clare V bag, so happy you found a great dupe! I just can’t bring myself to buy an expensive bag when there are so many cute dresses, like yours, that I still need to buy! xx Rox-Anne Celebrating This Life
