LBD: Day to Night

Hey y'all! It's no secret that a little black dress is an absolute necessity in any fashionista's wardrobe. What's better than an LBD that you can wear for daytime or nighttime without looking too overdone?! I recently found this beautiful dress at a vintage shop in Los Angeles. I was drawn to it because of the little pockets, the length, the sleeves, and the white details. It's the perfect dress to transition into fall. I paired it with red pointy heels to add a pop of color. The heels make the dress look elegant and classy. They also give it an edgy vibe. The shoes always make an outfit and there is no way this dress would look half as good if it were paired with flats. I always like to pair dresses that are above the knee with a little heel for daytime. The right heel can elongate the legs and make you look tall, confident, and poised. For nighttime, I went a little edgier with my shoe choice. Fall is the perfect time to whip out the thigh high boots! Thigh high boots can be tricky to style since you have to know what to pair them with to make your outfit look just the right amount of sexy (and so you don't end up looking tacky). I decided to pair them with this dress because although the dress is short, it is still very modest on top. The dress paired with the boots is a classy and sexy mix, and is very 60's mod (which I'm obsessed with).

*Tip For The Road: I HIGHLY recommend vintage shopping if you are looking for a little black dress. There are sooooo many dresses that are from different time periods that will look awesome when they are incorporated with shoes and accessories you already own…AND no one else will have the same dress!
