Working a Holiday Shift

A little black dress (LBD) in a classic shift silhouette with long sleeves can be such a staple during the colder months. Need to get dressed in a flash for a surprise holiday gathering? That LBD can have you ready to go in no time. By the way, the shift dress I’m wearing is on sale for under $30.

I wore today’s look to a weekend gathering recently. My LBD held the entire look down while a faux fur vest, a statement pearl necklace, and my circle lace pumps added glam touches.

The shift dress has a fitted silhouette. I’m wearing it in a size small for a relaxed fit. A smaller size would give a tighter fit. I love the thick and stretchy fabric used to create this dress; it makes the dress quite forgiving.

I can’t believe I’ve shied away from faux fur vests in the past. I’ve been reaching for this one often. Did I tell you that I found the vest in Burlington Coat Factory for under $20? It looks so luxe.

I’ve been wearing a lot of black this fall. What my looks lack in color, though, they compensate for with fun mixed textures. Here’s a closer look at the texture mixing in this look.
