Little Black Party Dress...



black lace dress (only $68), this one is similar & comes in 11 colors // opaque black tights

I love a good LBD, but especially during the holidays. Christmas parties, dinners, New Year's Eve... there are so many excuses to dress up! I love this dress in particular because it's not too long (I'm 5'3 and a lot of nice dresses come down to my knees!), it's incredibly high-quality and it's only $68! If you like the dress but want it in another color, check out this look-alike. It comes in ELEVEN colors! Also, you may notice that I've been wearing the same crystal earrings over and over... they are so cute and match everything in my closet. They're only $30!

I don't know what it is about Christmastime, but my life gets about 9834753264327 times busier than normal. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with everything that needs to get done... I'm waking up early this morning to try to get a head start before the weekend! Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

    1. Thank you! I bought it through my mom's company - she works for a jewelry organization and can get jewelry wholesale, so unfortunately it's not available online :( It's a morganite stone with rose gold band if that helps!!

  12. You look fabulous as always! Curious... do you use an eyelash curler? If so, which one? I read your makeup post from last week and didn't see it posted. I use the same mascara and love it, but don't get as dramatic of a look as your do. I just must not have the lashes to begin with, but always wondered if a curler would make a difference. When do you use it? Before the primer? After? Thanks!

    1. I actually don't use an eyelash curler! I've never owned one and they kind of scare me with how close you have to get it to your eye haha! I think the primer really makes a difference, I use L'Oreal Double Extend mascara - only the white side though :)

    I had a question, too! I love your curls! What do you use? Curling Iron? Curlers? And, How many inches?

    Thank you for all the great Fashion Tips - all this Year!!! :)

  27. Haha I have the opposite problem, I'm about 6' so most dresses are so short on me! You look great in this, a simple black dress is great to have as a wardrobe staple!

  28. Love this look. Question: Do you wear a special bra with this, or is the dressed lined enough that you don't need to wear anything?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm actually drooling over that Kate Spade bag. I'm not even usually drawn to glitter, but I think it's maybe the Holiday season just taking over and making me want everything sparkly?! But, I love this look, so classy and timeless <3
    Would love if you checked out my blog Caitlin, I'd love your feedback and advice!
