Looking Back, Looking Forward

In preparation for the holiday season, I’m beginning to take stock of my “going-out” clothes.  I don’t have a lot, but I do own a few pieces that provide great canvasses for continuous reinvention.  Today, we shall take a look at one of them.

Eight months ago, I scored a simply beautiful black dress at the Loft and I remain excited about the deal I got.  $8.50 for a super chic LBD?  Those are the kinds of deals we bargain shoppers dream of.

I haven’t worn the dress yet, but I’ve been exploring styling options, and I’ve shared a couple of those with you.

I’ve found that it works well all by itself as seen in Super Steal II:  How I Got a Loft Dress for $8.50.

This fall, I plan to spruce the dress up subtly by adding a little bling via a belt.  I envision a skinny or slightly-larger-than-skinny belt.  I don’t own the perfect belt just yet, but in the meantime (and for this post), a pink satin belt adorned with metal details serves as a stand-in.

Earrings—Kendra Scott

From the look of things, I believe I’m going to make it though the holidays without purchasing a new party dress.

    The belt adds a fun touch to the dress.
