Threads of the Day: Little Black Dress

by

T

here’s just something about a LBD (little black dress) that makes you feel sexy, powerful, and confident. When you find the one that hugs your curves just right, drapes effortlessly, and displays just the right amount of sex appeal while still leaving something to the imagination, then you’ve found “the one”.

Every lady needs at least two go-to LBD’s in her wardrobe. Choose something a little classy and the other a little sassy.

I love to put my own personal twist on my looks and thought it would be fun to show you how this dress is originally worn online and how I chose to wear it.

LBD

The dress is actually a maxi dress from American Apparel that I turned backwards so the deep V was facing the front and knotted up into a midi dress. (Note: I had to pin the dress to my bra to avoid a wardrobe malfunction lol) To keep the class, I added a sexy mesh bra to peek through the front. The fit was completed with a pair of lime green heels, a sparkly choker, and tousled sexy hair.

What I love most is the versatility of this dress. It’s super easy to transition from day to night and maxi to midi. Remember to keep it classy and rock your look with confidence!

Do you like this dress styled better as a maxi or a midi?

    The midi looks great on you. How do you keep the front from being a wardrobe malfunction?

      I’m not sure, I cut the tags out. Just get the size that fits you best.
