Guest Blogger: Styling The Little Black Dress For Any Occasion

One item every girl needs to have in their closet is a LBD (Little Black Dress). For the longest time on my thrifting wish list was the little black dress. I would always search the dress section at my local Goodwill  for the perfect LBD. I have been fortunate to not only find 1 but 3 LBD’s and they are perfect for any occasion!

 Girls Night Out

This A-line dress from Cali is perfect for every gal. Gathered under the bust to form an empire waist and solid straps so that any undergarment can be worn. To cover the shoulders to ward against any chill, I added a denim jacket! Did you know that you can find awesome accessories from Goodwill, too?  These fun wedges from 9-West and red patent faux leather handbag from Aldo are also Goodwill finds! For an extra pop I added some chunky jewelry.

Romantic Evening

Nothing makes a girl feel slimmer, sexier, taller and more confident than a well fitting LBD and that is why I love this number by Calvin Klein. While form fitting, it hides all of those lumps and bumps that make us so self conscious. Nice and stretchy with a full zip back, this Goodwill find was a wonderful addition to my closet. Metallic heels and a fun, colorful handbag from Goodwill finished off the look.

Formal Event

While at Goodwill, I found this classic dress by designer Ralph Lauren. It is perfect for any dressy occasion! With a full skirted bottom and flattering V-neck this dress will always be in style. It has a pretty embellishment that creates an empire waist which is flattering for any figure. While you can add virtually any accessory to the LBD, a classic strand of pearls is always a winner. Stuart Weitzman slingback pumps and an Elliott Lucca handbag, two of my favorite Goodwill finds, finished off the look.
