Inspiration Board: Summer - LBD
I've already raved about how immediately and deeply the sophistication of this look connected with me. Since we've been doing a bunch of casual outfits on the Inspiration board lately, I wanted to switch up and do something a bit dressier...because it's fun to dress up sometimes ;) Ssly, one can't yoga-pant forever. Well, maybe one can but...why? There are so many fabulosities to experiment with, including the ever-so-classic LBD (little black dress). Summer's version has a vintage feel, due to it's fit-and-flare shape, elbow sleeves and sweetheart neckline. You can keep that same vibe with a boatneck or square-neck as well. For silhouette, I love how forgiving and beautiful the fit-and-flare style is, but a body-skimming sheath (note: skimming, not hugging - pass over the suctioned-on-bodycon/I-can-see-what-shape-your-spleen-is types) is a flawless choice also. Summer's style dessert was a pair of pointy-toe pumps in black, with the only color coming from her scarlet lip. You can reprise that precisely...or, bring your color in another way: bright shoes! That last is a fav of mine. I'd forego the bright lip and go for something softer, like a pink-nude. Let's also play Devil(WearsPrada) Advocate. You love this look. You do not love dressing up, at least not today, at this very moment. You're headed to school or lunch, not a fancy dinner or the symphony. 'k. I can go with that :) Instead of the LBD, do black-on-black with a slim sweater (nothing too chunky) and a flared skirt (to-the-knee or midi will play up the polished feel). Keep the casual coming with a cute pair of flats - I went with ballets, but smoking slipper/loafer flats will do equally well. And..ta-da...you've metamorphosized this dressy glamour into a much more relaxed look...equally chic, tho ;) because...you! #HappyStyling!
