Can you believe it’s already mid-September? Fashion Week is in full swing and the temps today are a chilly 60 something degrees. I was hoping for a few more weeks of nice weather, but I guess Fall is seriously ready to make its debut.
In the spirit of the new season, it’s time for a new take on a wardrobe staple – the LBD! A little black dress is never boring, and never goes out of style. There are so many different types and ways to wear them! This number is from Rue107.com and has the perfect eye-catching, feminine silhouette. I love the exaggerated A-Line proportions and the ruffle detailing on the sleeves, but the neoprene fabric adds just a touch of edge. I paired the dress with leopard block kitten heels that I got in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
I usually hate kitten heels, but the block heel made a world of difference! Something about short, thin heels just feels matronly to me, but when they are short and blocky I find them pretty cool. Plus nothing is worse than being stuck in heels when you are racing between shows at NYFW!
To finish the look, I had to throw in my classic Louis Vuitton tote that you guys have seen me wearing all over Instagram. It was a steal from a vintage store and I could wear it every day for years and not get sick of it! It works especially well with the retro vibes of this look.
This dress is sold out in black, but still available in Olive. And you can shop similar styles of this look below!
