A Classic Statment

Outfit: Dress - Jessica Simpson, Necklace - Glam Grab, Heels - Target, Sunglasses - House of Harlow 1960

When it comes to style staples, no piece pulls rank as high as a classic little black dress. Admittedly, I have far too many colorful dresses in my closet, so whenever I find a fabulous LBD, I can't resist adding the darker piece to my wardrobe. This dress is everything I was looking for. I was sold the second I spotted the sequin detail down the front. I knew the blank canvas would allow my teal pearl necklace from the jewelry auction site Glam Grab, to really pop. And lets face it, as an accessory hound, the outfits are really just there to showcase the jewelry.  

Coiled Pearl Bracelet and Black Crystal Ring from my Posh Locket curated collection!

  26. That LBD is perfect! I'm always on the hunt for one that is classic, but have yet to find a short one. I recently purchased a BCBG simple, scoop necked, cap sleeve, maxi dress. It's amazing... Absolutely a staple and also should be good to stick around in my closet for awhile... AH-MA-ZING! xoxo

  37. I am in love with just about any LBD! I absolutely adore the sequin's down the front, gives the dress just a little more edge compared to a lot of LBD's out there that are just plain all around. I couldn't agree more that having a blank canvas such as this is just so much fun to accessorize!!! :)
