My Style Challenge: The LBD

For my office holiday party I had a great little black dress I wanted to wear! I actually don't go for the LBD very often, since it can be challenging to look "fashion bloggery" in something so classic. People expect me in loud colors and mixed prints!! But I decided that with the right accessories I could still look blog-worthy!

How did I do?? I woke up with my hair feeling very British rocker so I decided to channel Kate Moss for my look. I paired my LBD with a menswear tux jacket and a bold statement necklace to really amp up the volume. I'm wearing: Guess? dress, lush jacket from Nasty Gal, Michael Michael Kors pumps, lovers + friends leopard bag. Jewelry includes: Statement necklace from South Moon Under, gold bangles from Cambodia, stacking rings from Banana Republic and Tina Tang, large blingy ring I think from H&M.
The necklace is tres divine and surprisingly versatile! I can't wait to wear it again with a more casual outfit.
Another detail shot! My necklace was the focal point, but that doesn't mean I couldn't wear some other fun jewelry!! Don't be afraid to pile it on, it's the holidays!!
