Holiday Dressing ~One "Little Black Dress" + A Splash of Embellishments = Fabulous Fashion!

A "Little Black Dress" is a 'must have' for practically every woman.  Its your "go to" piece for a multitude of occasions. This is  the one dress thats got 'built in' versatility because all you have to do is change the accessories and Voila you've made a whole new look! The important thing to remember when shopping for that little black dress is that you will want to use it for many different occasions. This means you should choose a dress with simple, classic lines that is flattering to your body shape and in a style that will stand the test of time. Choose a dress that has minimal or no embellishment. It will allow you to make the best use of jewelry and/or accessories to change up the look to make the dress work for your lifestyle. Here are three basic dress styles but the possibilities are endless.


Accessories are what you need to take these dresses from
 simple to sensational!
  That's the beauty as well as the fun of it!
Here are some items that I have selected from some Etsy shops that can take this dress and give it different looks from simple to funky to elegant to sensational. Make Etsy your one stop shopping  for your jewelry and accessories this season!

The most important thing is to have fun with it!
Think of it as a blank canvas waiting for you to write your signature on it!

I LOVE your blog post! I like the way you changed type sizes and colors and made the copy like a magazine. You also did a good job on the jewelry accessories, labeling them with different looks.

I think you've hit upon a good style for writing a blog that's different than just the ordinary paragraph approach.

I love the topic too, btw. It's really "fashion forward."
