I'm not quite sure how or why I went this long without a LBD (little black dress) in my wardrobe. I had so many ideas on how to style this dress, I had a hard time choosing just one. I settled on simple and chic this time. For a gal on a budget a LBD is the perfect item to have. This one was only $20! I love the simple shape, and the thin spaghetti straps (i've realized this is the most flattering strap for my upper body). I usually accentuate my waist with a belt but I decided to let it flow this time. Plus it already has a tiny curve in the waist to give some definition . The chunky/strappy heels, minimal gold accessories, and a white clutch were the perfect addition to this look. Get ready to see a lot more of this dress on the blog.

Happy Monday!
