Ways to Wear Challenge #1 - Little Black Dress

Since Five Take is having a break I've really missed taking part in a wardrobe challenge, so when I saw Gemma over at Big Girls Browse was launching one, I was really excited to take part!

So simple really, this is my take on the Little Black Dress, with upcoming festivities a lot of people see this classic number as their wardrobe saviour, and I'm no exception. And by sheer luck the lovely folk at Simply Be had sent me a LBD this week, so what better opportunity to have a go at styling it up.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do, but I knew I wanted some kind of headband affair going on and when I couldn't find the one I wanted, I improvised with a necklace! It wasn't meant to have a 20's feel about it, but I think with my hair as it is at the moment and the headband, that's what it ended up like, and I quite like it!!

The dress itself has cross over detail to the bust, is nipped in at the waist and has a gorgeous knee length pleated skirt. Its simple, but effective, really wearable as it has lots of stretch and I found it true to size. I wore it with a simple pearl necklace, I added a leather obi belt and satin peep toe shoes in black, oyster and grey. The dress is also available in red, whihc I think would look stunning!

  1. The dress looks nice but the headband literally looks like you have dropped a pile of necklaces on your head. In fact you look a complete twat!!!

    1. Hi Lucie, whilst I appreciate comments and criticism, I don't think there's any need to call me a twat... B

  2. Ok fair enough. The twat comment is nothing to do with your size, faces you pull etc etc it's simply the fact you look an idiot! Also when do you think you might actually buy some clothes to review instead of freeloading all the time. I dont get why you get chosen so much over other, more stylish bloggers....

    1. Thank you again for your comments. I don't really know what else to say to be honest. You obviously have a massive problem with me. End of.
