1 item 3 ways: the LBD

Good morning! I am so happy to introduce you to Julia! Finding her blog was a joy, and since the initial discovery I go back day after day to see her cute and approachable style... several times she and I have picked up a similar piece, and seeing the unique way she styled the item provided me with inspiration galore! 

Hello Here&Now readers!  I'm Julia from Cup of Tea.  While Jessica is away, she asked me to fill in with a guest post about a topic of my choice.  And who doesn't need some Little Black Dress inspiration?  That's a topic that never gets old.

The other day I was digging through my closet looking for something I hadn't worn in a long time.  Buried way in the back was this shift dress I bought five years ago from Forever 21.  The Little Black Dress is so versatile it's almost funny.  Seriously, you can go anywhere in a LBD.  It's all in the styling.  I've created three looks: one for the weekend, one for business-casual, and one for a night on the town!

dress: Forever 21 // boots: Civico 10 // belt: Target // jacket: American Eagle // hat: American Eagle

dress: Forever 21 // pants: New York & Co // necklace: vintage // heels: Target

dress: Forever 21 // jacket: LC Lauren Conrad // shoes: Mix No. 6 // necklace: INPINK // infinity scarf: handmade

Have fun styling your LBD!  For more outfit inspiration feel free to hop over to Cup of Tea!  Although Jessica sure has a lot of supurb outfit-inspiring posts, I don't know why you would ever want to hop away! ;)

See - How great is Julia?! Adorable AND a styling genius with clothing that every woman should have in her closet!
Looking for your own blank slate of a LBD (on a dime no less)?
Look no further:


  1. Yay, I love Julia! What a great LBD that you can wear it so many ways. Love all 3 outfits. I think the 2nd one is my favorite! :)
