The little black dress (LBD) is an essential piece in anyone’s wardrobe. It is like a canvas. It enhances whatever jewelry or other accessories you are wearing, your make-up, and your hair, without distracting away from them. Accessorize it with different items and you can give a little black dress a whole new persona. Get one in a classic shape for a timeless sophiscated look.
Here I took my favorite little black dress, Eva Dress from Artilleri. I have worn this dress before to create my low ARC outfit in a previous post. Today I accessorized it with bold jewelry to create an elegant but trendy look embracing some of the 2009 Spring/Summer trends. The earrings and necklace are the focus of the outfit. This statement jewelry Pride Gold is from Modern Gypsy, just released over the weekend. They are so chic, quite a modern interpretation of African influences. I think bold jewelry like these look best with simple silhouttes. I added a simple belt with gold buckles from LeLutka Mode. It’s part of another great LBD. For shoes and bag, I toned down the color to a more neutral shade of gold. The pumps are from SKG and the clutch is from Baiastice.
On to hair and make-up, I have gone blonde lately. As you know by now, I usually wear black brown hair, but lately I have been inclined to wear more platinum blonde shades for a change. This particular hair style is from LeLutka Beaute, a previous group gift. I wanted to keep the hair clean and simple and this was perfect. The make-up is from Rockberry‘s Mia line. I love the freckles on this one.
