Hi Girls! Does dressing up make you a little nervous? Do you like to look chic and stylish but without a lot of fuss? Is simple and stunning the look you are going for? The LBD is the right choice for many occasions but it can also be boring. Read this article if you want to learn which LBD is now in fashion or, if you just want to learn how to make yours shine. The Little Black Dress is always in Style… Revive it… and Get ready to Party ! Inspiration by Rooney Mara and that girl… with the tattoo 🙂
I love the little edgy black dress she wore to the New York premiere…
“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” is a film where fashion and looks certainly had a lot to do with portraying the character. And Mara has kept the edgy look as she makes the rounds of world premieres.
Rooney Mara, in a Nina Ricci little black….gown at the Golden Globes was one of my favorite outfits!
– Bare shoulders and sleeveless dresses
– High waste with full skirts
– Stretch, fitted dresses
– One shoulder dresses

“When I travel I always pack a little black dress” said supermodel Erin O’Connor “It’s like a blank canvas which can be dressed up or down, whatever the occasion.”
Dressing up is fun so go for the unexpected choice.
Although Coco Chanel used to say “ Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress” I do believe that wearing something new makes you happy and it shows. But it can be just a new pair of shoes.
The trick to making a dress look modern and individual is by pairing it with anything from edgy ankle boots to fluorescent sandals. So, don’t be afraid to give your look a twist by choosing fashion forward accessories. My favorite color for 2012 is lime yellow!
” Shoes are the sexiest party accessory because they can transform any look” says designer Alexander Birman. This season choices are show-stopping shoes and range from leopard prints to bold cobalt blue stiletto shoes.
– Leopard print
– Crystal shine
– Neutral beige
– Red Hot
– Fluorescent colors
– Ankle boots
– black sandals
Usually, with sandals and peep toe shoes I prefer bare legs. I apply a hydrating cream mixed with Mac Face and Body foundation on my legs and then on top, I use a bronzing powder. However, you could go for:
– black opaque tights like Falke’s black 100 denier demi-opaque
– tights like the Wolford with dots or stripes
What to Wear on Top?
You can pair the little black dress with a bright color leather biker jacket for a 2012 modern Rock Glamorous look.
IRO Leather Jacket
-Leather Biker Jacket
– Fur jacket or vest
– Tailored Jacket
My favorite is smokey eyes with eyeliner plus red lipstick. If it is for a party …. More is More ! I prefer Mac Lusting Lust B9, it has a great shade red and it lasts all night.
