LBD: Day to Night

StyleShannon GuerreroComment

DETAILS // LBD  |  CHAMBRAY SHIRT  |  CONVERSE

 

I love a good versatile dress.  I found this cute lbd at forever 21.  I had been looking for a knee length fitted dress and this one is perfect.  It’s lightweight and super comfy.  I was pretty skeptical when I first looked at the dress for two reasons.  One, it’s jersey knit.  Need I say more?  Jersey knit has a tendency to be a little unflattering for curves hugging all the wrong places.  Two, I’m a petite person standing at only 5’1”.  I’ve never really purchased any skirts or dresses that are knee length for fear that they would make me look even shorter than I am. I think this proved my fears wrong.

DETAILS // LBD  | OLD BLUSH MOTO JACKET  |  STATEMENT NECKLACE  |  BLOCK HEELS  |  LIP STAIN

Going from day to night is really fairly simple, especially with a simple black dress like this.  For an easy day look you can go with a chambray shirt or flannel around your waist and so cute sneakers.  To go from casual to dressy, just add heels, a nice jacket and a great lipstick.  I was going to go with my typical black moto leather jacket, but in the spirit of spring, I went with this awesome blush moto, also from Forever 21.  And my favorite dress up rule, add a statement necklace to finish your look.

I'm so excited to bring you my first of many 2015 Holiday Gift Guides.  I really wanted to gather up ideas that were out of the box and not just your "basic" girl gift.  I did a ton of research, which basically entailed me shopping online and wanting everything.  Isn't that how it usually goes?  Anyway, I compiled this list of really awesome presents for that Trendsetter in your life.  All gifts are UNDER $30! Under $30, you say?! That's right, all super affordable and almost guaranteed to be a hit.

I think the gift I'm most excited about is the DIY Marbled Jewelry Tray Kit by Brit & Co. Maybe its because I desperately want it (hint, hint).  The kit comes in six different colors, everything from silver, to teal to magenta.  The other day my roommate was asking me about gifts to get her pre-teen age nieces.  She wanted some kind of DIY kit that wasn't too childish.  I told her about this kit and she was stoked.  So looks like this gift guide is for (almost) all ages!

Happy Shopping!
