One LBD, Five Ways

Look 1: Brunch With The Girls- Anthropologie Dress/ Lovers + Friends Sweater/ Anthropologie Bag/ Anthropologie Hat/ Anthropologie Booties
Look 2: Holiday Party- Anthropologie Dress, Anthropologie Clutch/ Anthropologie Heels/ Anthropologie Headband/ NARS “Heat Wave” Lipstick
Look 3: Weekend Wear- Club Monaco Leather Jacket/ Anthropologie Dress/ Clare Vivier Bag/ Anthropologie Gloves/ Anthropologie Booties/ Anthropologie Scarf
Look 4: Date Night- Zara Coat/ Anthropologie Dress/ Anthropologie Belt/ Anthropologie Heels/ Ann Taylor Clutch
Look 5: Work Wear- Anthropologie Dress/ Zara Coat/ Anthropologie Tights/ Anthropologie Oxfords/ Vintage Chanel Bag/ Jeremy’s Hat

This is the perfect time of year to find a LBD to get you through the holiday season and beyond. I recently teamed up with Anthropologie to style one of their little black dresses five ways to show how easy it is to create completely different looks with the same dress. I chose this particular one (this one, this one and this one were close contenders) because it’s classic, simple and the scalloped hem and ruched shoulders give it some personality. I love that this dress can go from work wear to brunch with the girls to holiday party- all with the change of a few accessories. I try and always look for something that’s not so one-occasion specific, that way I get more wear out of it and don’t have to stress out about finding something different for every event.

I love everything about this post!!! This is exactly how my brain functions…trying to get the most out of every item in my closet!

I was just at anthro over the weekend & picked up a super cute casual day dress & this amazefest sequin belt…I am taking the belt to the Bahamas with me for my anniversary trip!!!

Today on my blog I talked about sparkly pieces & how to find items that are great for the holidays but not pigeon holed into that one season but great year round!

Trying to re-do clothing is what I am worst at!! I love this post, I have an LBD I usually wear to work…not I have some ideas on how to convert it!

Great looks! I have to be honest, I didn’t read the blog post title before reading and I didn’t realize it was the same dress until I got to the end of the post– so job well done! You look gorg! I absolutely love the scalloped edge, the leopard bag, glitter heels, and the polka dot tights!

All of your looks are lovely but my favourites are Weekend Wear (must get those gloves!) and Work Wear. The scalloped hem is such a wonderful on that dress and the black is a classic colour choice.

I love your looks and your bags! Have you ever thought of using a base shaper for any of your bags. That could really help preserving the structure of your bag! I bought mine from, but you can also get several from Etsy and eBay! Have a nice evening! :)
