Unlike the rest of the (sane) people in the continental US, I am wide-awake, editing photos, sipping Pinot Noir and trying to tune out my puppy(Kingsley). He has decided it is playtime, at midnight, and I must be the thrower of the toy…Focus…Little Black Dress. Yes, a few days ago I started following Morning Lavender, on Instagram, and I immediately fell in love♥. I went to her online shop, saw this dress and had to try it out. Normally if dresses only come in S-M-L, they tend to be too big on me, but the description said the dress runs a little small- it fit like a glove! This dress is well made, very flattering and great for Fall. Note to self- This shop is on my radar, for future purchases. Take a little scroll and see what I wore with my new LBD !!!

I am sorry I didn’t take a closer picture, of my makeup. I think this outfit calls for a SmOkEy EYE and glossy lips. Yep, dramatic makeup can definitely work with this. Stay away from the smokey eye and bright-red lip, do one or the other…Preferably the dark eyes will go best, but if eye-shadow is your enemy opt for the colored lip. With hair, be sleek and sexy-straight or low, slick ponytail (Kendall Jenner comes to mind for this look).
Where to Wear and MORE++++
Where to Wear- On a HOT date, hands-down, this tight dress makes their eye’s linger. This would also be great for a bachelorette party, or a night out in Vegas…In other words, it is a party scene dress, but it starts out with dinner. It really makes you feel confident because it hugs you in all the right places.
Definitely a Clutch Purse– This dress is sexy AND chic, a clutch is a must. If you hate carrying clutches get one that has a thin, metal chain to turn it into a shoulder clutch.
Outfit Inspiration(Theme)– I normally tend to have an overall theme to an outfit. This dress is asymmetrical, sharp but simple so I really wanted a pattern shoe to make it POP. When I saw the red-plaid pumps, I knew they had some character and were great for Fall 2016. I thought a gold, chain necklace (that wasn’t too busy) would be a nice compliment and a simple black clutch to top off this LBD. In all honesty, the plaid shoes add a little grunge flair and I kept that in mind.
I have now decided against extreme sleep deprivation, I’m calling it a night. I hope y’all liked this Fall/LBD/Grunge/Plaid look, it really is fun to wear and I feel great in it! Any feedback is appreciated and if you’re on social media go FOLLOW ME and find other outfits inspirations(not on the blog). Happy Friday!
P.S. More Photos Below↓
After we (Chris and I) were over being serious about pics…Mr. Turtle decided to come say Hi.
Then I got photo bombed by a bathroom break for Shaggy and his human.
In the end, I decided to talk to the ducks. They were a little on edge, I seemed to have ruffled their feathers…I forgot to bring the bread.
(Side Note- I am a horrible at jokes, just go with it.)
