Introducing the Little Black Dress

If you know anything about me, you know that I not only L.O.V.E the Little Black Dress, but I live by it. Any occassion, any season of the year, any day of the week the LBD is a staple and always a winner.

A Little Histoire of the Little Black Dress

Audrey Hepburn has to be the icon of little black dress from her unforgettable scene in Breakfast at Tiffanys. A one of a kind black dress and Tiffany & co. what a pair! I'm jealous. Her elegance, beauty and poise transcends through the decades. Her long trailing black, figure hugging dress is imprinted in the fashion histories for centuries to come. Not only is she a style icon and the model for the little black dress movement, she is one of my style role models I will always love and aspire to be alike.

An Armani Privé sequined black dress paired with the perfect red bottom Christian Louboutin high heel shoes, a classic Louis Vuitton clutch with Chanel rouge noir nail varnish splashed on the finger nails and finally diamanté encrusted jewelry sparkling in the glistening lights. And don't forget the bold and the beautiful red lippy. 
Ah sweet dreams of a fashionista. 

LBD Shindig

My dear friend Priscilla took this inspiration and themed her special 21st birthday The Little Black Dress Party. Decadence, chic, style, and beauty oozed from the venue. 

The ladies wore black dresses of course and the men wore the classic, timeless and effortless black and white suit. Skinny ties, bow ties and Italian shoes. The men gave the ladies a run for their money. 

The birthday girl wore midnight blue from YDE and Steve Madden heels my friends and I so lovingly bought her. That's what I love about the LBD, the statement can be made in the accessories and that wow piece. And if Steven Madden red suede shoes can't do that, then I don't know what else can...

L.O.V.E it!

My beautiful, stunning friends looking exquisite. Each of us are wearing something "wow" to distinguish the black dresses from the others. Earrings, belts, necklaces and jewels. 
Diamonds are a girl's best friend after all.

My dress is from French Connection. 

The Birthday girl in the blue. Love the colour burst of the shoes. The epitome of how to make the LBD your own.

The Steve Maddens.

Stunning Lindi. The leopard print belt around the waist is a chic, modern twist on traditional little black dress.

Red earrings, bejeweled OTT necklace and a leopard print belt. And don't forget the Red Lips. Mwah

The men...

Dashing and Dapper gentlemen, yet all three so different.

With an LBD be conservative with the black eye makeup. Yet, bright colour eye shadow is a risk but a definite statement. Don't be the girl sitting in the corner. 
Make the other girls want to be you, make their dresses envious of your LBD and the men drooling at your feet. Never hold back.



Happy Birthday Pris <3
