Lookbook # 1 : The LBD ( a new venture )



I have always liked the pages of In Style Magazine which lay out different pieces to choose from. With all the rain we are having, I decided to try it myself. Also, I found a blogger who does this beautifully, Daisy Duke! Her blog is titled Outfits Anonymous and has a look book full of great outfit ideas! So today, during a down pour, I got out something we all have, the LBD ! In one form or another, we all own a go-to little black dress. This one is cotton / spandex blend from Old Navy- perfect for casual wear and a great staple to your suitcase during vacation! It can be dressed up and down, tied in a knot, and worn all week long!!! The neckline is shorter in the back and can be worn backwards for layering tanks. Here are some ideas for dressing this staple in a variety of styles. This is an entirely new format for me, so here goes! Look book # 1. The LBD !

The beginning: The dress and the staples:

For shlepping around the shops: 1.
2.
3.


A little Boho: 4.
5.

For a cool day or evening: cardi's! 6.
7.
8.

Just for fun! : 9.
10.
11.
12.
13.

A bit Sporty: 14.
15.
16.
17.

Don't forget the leggings! 18.
19.
20.

Kinda dressy: 21.

Let the tights do the talking! 22.

And don't forget the rain: 23.

 And a little Animal Print! 24.

A tan shirt dress as a light coat: 25.

I could have gone on forever! These accessories can be mixed and matched and you may never need to check luggage again ( if you layer them on ;). This was a lot of fun. Which outfit do you like best?
1,9,11 & 18 are my favorites, I suppose. How would you accessorize your LBD ?

Cool concept, must have taken you ages to style all 25 outfits so impeccably well. I really like 9, 18 & 23 :)

Hey hun, left some info on my blog about the list forum, but figured I'd leave it here too incase you don't check. The forum is through the I Love Fatshion Network. I don't run it or anything, I just submitted my post. The info should be here:

Great post by the way, so cool to see the dress mixed up so many ways.
