Let’s just be real here for a second.
I should probably be put on a LBD watch list, because I literally can not pass one by. However, I promise you, this case is different. That doesn’t excuse me from needing to do a serious purge of my closet, [because those are necessary, like very three months, and I can’t stay on top of the clutter], because having a classic capsule wardrobe is so important. A classic black dress, for every season is the most important [in my opinion] piece in your closet. The perfect LBD can ensure that you look polished, put together, and classy no matter the situation, circumstance, or how long you have to put it together! That’s exactly why I love having options to fall back on, however options are no longer necessary, all I need is this one!
I usually fall victim to purchasing, way too many, short sleeve/summer LBD’s and end up having to wear a sweater or blazer with them. Which is fine, for spring and fall, but during the colder months, it’s nice to have a dress with longer sleeves. This J.Crew LBD, is the solution for any winter occasion. I honestly cannot rave enough about this dress, it is so classy and most importantly flattering! It’s cut perfectly, with 3/4 length sleeves, a slimming band around the waist, a crew cut neckline, and it even has zippers on the sleeves! For this look, I paired it with my Pigalle Louboutins and simple jewelry, but it would look beautiful with a statement necklace, or even a scarf and boots!
Honestly, you cannot go wrong with this dress. It’s a classic and will make you feel flawless in a matter of seconds [or I can’t help… you might feel 0 to a 100 real quick], I promise you will love this dress! If you are planning on picking this up, or already have it, for a holiday party, be sure to check out my makeup tutorial and tips here for getting the perfect holiday look, plus I’m wearing this dress there also! I’m wearing it here, and have pretty much been wearing it to every holiday-ish occasion for the past 2 months! Because I am completely obsessed with the look and the products, especially this Tom Ford lipstick! #obsessed
If you are out and about Christmas shopping, be sure to stop in J.Crew for a peak, or try on, of this dress. I was instantly sold and I think you will be too! If you have finals this week I hope they go well and I will be praying for you all! I have my last one today and I am quite scared, but couldn’t be more relieved for the semester to be over soon!
