In Tiers over this LBD
Just a sec... the pun... Too much? Ahhh, the little black dress. They are Staple Number One, on pretty much every list of "Items you should have in your closet." I have a few, and recently added this one! This dress from Addition Elle felt great the moment I put it on. Something about the weight of the jersey its made of, maybe the tiered skirt, I don't know, its just one of those dresses that feels so right (for lack of a better term) on. That's the thing about Addition Elle pieces though, they are not cheap (unless you get it on sale, which I sadly, did not) but the quality is there on every. single. piece. I buy a lot from Forever 21+, and Target, etc, and while they are fun, and fine for a season, the items I purchase from Addition Elle are going to last. I LOVE that this dress is so versatile. I bought this to go out for my birthday, and I was specifically looking for something a bit more on the casual side. Though I didn't take any pics (derp) I wore it with a jean jacket. (More to come on that jean jacket... its gotten the best cost-per-wear of any item in my closet, quite possibly!) It nicely dressed this down, but, without the jacket, with a niiiice pair of heels, this dress would easily be elevated. This day, I wore it with a cropped cardi, and some nice wedge sandals, so it was mid-range fancy-bitch. Honestly, this dress does triple duty. This particular dress is sold out, but I am going to include 2 different polyvore sets here so you can see how it can work both casual, and dressy. I always had the idea that a "fancy" dress could never be constructed of a fabric like jersey, but this dress has changed my mind. As an aside, I also picked up this jewelry from Old Navy to wear the same night, and it has sparked a renewed interest in the color combination of grey, black and soft pink. It's not de rigeur at the moment, but I am really digging it. So much so, that I think it might be the new color scheme for my blog redesign. Which I keep telling myself I will get to. Very soon.
