A Splendid holiday: the LBD

If there’s one thing we’ve learned time and again, whether from girlfriends, mom, or fashion magazines, it’s that a little black dress is a MUST. When you’re in a pinch, this multi-tasker will carry you through with style and grace. Sometimes it feels like there’s only so much you can do with this classic look though. Recently I teamed up with Splendid over on Clementine Daily to accessorize one of my favorite LBDs from them (available Nov. 15). The shoot was so much fun that I wanted to share yet another way to style this versatile (and comfortable!) wardrobe staple.

The top of the dress is sheer, giving it a bit of sexiness. I chose to accessorize my look with a bit of an arm party, two stacked rings, and a glam leopard mini satchel. (Bracelets c/o Sevenly, Kitsy Lane, and Madewell. Rings c/o Kitsy Lane. Clare Vivier mini sac bag.)

I was lucky enough to have this gorgeous headpiece from Garnish here in Philadelphia. I think the ivory fascinator adds a touch of vintage glam to the overall look, don’t you think?
