Little Black Dress

Every girl has one (or should have one)- a little black dress. This is my work-appropriate version, mind you. It’s a basic black sheath dress with pockets that works well for a variety of occasions. I’ve worn it to a funeral (sadly), a brunch and tea event with my college’s President’s wife (figure that out one), and now here on the blog. Since it’s more on the conservative side, I thought I’d make it more fun with some bright tights, jewels and lipstick. Now let’s just hope this is the last time I have to wear tights since spring weather should be creeping up on us anytime now.

  1. I like how simple this is, especially looks amazing with the bold lips and tights! I have a few simple version and dress them up with accessories sometimes. Have a great week.  🙂 /Madison

  2. Your LBD is so versatile  the sleeves are a good length, I LOVE that it has pockets! Great way to have some fun with the tights, necklace, and lipstick. You could always do some fun shoes with it too, or a cute belt! 

  3. SO PRETTY you are!  I love the raspberry tights – and how they match your lips!  Nice job of spicing up a LBD 🙂

  4. I love the colored tights, I’m always hesitant to wear them because I don’t have thin legs, but I think you styling is on point. And that HAIR of yours is so pretty.

  5. I loooove how you dressed up the black dress with colored tights! So cute and such a great way to add color. 

  6. You can never go wrong with a little black dress! Love this one, and I agree – LOVE pockets on a dress! xo, Julie

  7. Oh girl this outfit was made for you! From the side swept hair, dark lip and dress (with pockets!!) you are the epitome of a fashionista! I have a black pocket dress from Express that I can’t live without, LBDs are a must have. 

  8. Rachel, you look so stunningly beautiful! Truly you are just so lovely. I honestly don’t have a little black dress…looks like I must get one. 

  9. LOVE the bright tights with the dress…the perfect pop of colour!  I agree, every woman needs a chic black dress in her closet.  Mine feel outdated so I’m on the hunt for a new one that can easily transition from work to cocktails.  You look great!

  10. You look gorgeous and that hair! My lord I’m jealous! if i wanted that id have to wear a million extensions! Stunning!

  11. Rachel, you look just beautiful from head to toe, started from your super adorable wavy hair, to the darling lipstick to the chic dress and the pop of your coloured tights 🙂
