a tale of two lbd's
this weekend i had two opportunities to get dolled up. somehow, each one included a short-sleeved, little black dress with cute pockets, sheer hose (do we call them hose anymore? they were control top, which i think constitutes the term hose. i digress....) and black patent maryjane heels.

the first lbd was worn to a 20s theme party. this is an actual vintage dress i've had for years. it looks hand-made, and its drop-waist and swingy skirt make me think it could actually be from the 20s. paired with red lipstick which i've never done before--i hardly even wear chapstick! and a $5 headband from target, i was ready to do the charleston all night long!

hose, heels, & headband:

love love love these buttons...

the second lbd was for a wedding. i didn't want to take the time to plan an "outfit." thus, the wonder of the little black dress. throw it on, add a few accessories, and you're good to go.

bracelet: j.crew
earrings: a gift

after my 20s 'face' the night before, i was ready for a soft clean look with my makeup...

both looks were easy, and comfortable. obviously, i loves me some lbd... but maybe next time i'll branch out a little and wear, i don't know, gray!


  1. PS to anyone reading these comments...she looked GORGEOUS in the second LBD...these pics do not do any justice whatsoever.

  2. love that j. crew bracelet. (and your hair in that 2nd dress!)


  3. I was delighted to find this web site. I wanted to thank you for your time reading this wonderful! I really enjoyed every bit of it and I've marked to ensure that the blog post something new.. RTC Bus advertising in Kanpur is an awesome approach to increase high effect familiarity with your organization or item. You can either utilize bus advertising in a short burst, huge crusade to dispatch another business or item or as a long haul battle to build brand mindfulness.
