My Style: Little Black Dress

Today's Look:  is filled with sophistication and sprinkled with youth.  To start the look off, I chose the dress.  You could say it's vintage since it was passed down to me from my aunt.  When she gave it to me she told me it was an important dress.  It was her perfect LBD (little black dress) and held many magical memories.  I was thrilled to have been given it.  The dress is sleeveless with a heavy material that hangs nicely and sparkles like a starry night.  It's very pretty but a little long for my preference.  So, to update the modest dress and add a personal touch, I accessorized with a gray and silver belt at the waist to help shorten the dress, as well as add the glam factor.  Next, I chose the jacket.  I wanted something warm, fabulous, and longer length since it was a chilly, rainy day.  The black and grays in the animal print design went beautifully.  Since tights would have been somewhat conservative, I opted for sheer thigh-highs and platform boots to add some edge.  Finishing off the look, I wore silver hoop earrings, two silver rings, and a metallic clutch, all bedazzled obviously.  ;)
