One Dress, Two Different Ways

I have this Little Black Dress that I invested in last year, and since I invested (I like to say invest when I've spent way too much money on a dress) in this dress I like to get the most wear out of it as possible. Last week I had a Black Tie Optional event and I wore my Little Black Dress.  Here's a really easy way to change the look of the same old dress.  This night I wore my hair down, wore some black suede pumps...

I put some colorful earrings on...
And some other fun accessories and voila! It's a different look from the last time I wore it...  
Earrings - Sarah Briggs via Jewelry Nut Auctions, Bracelet - Michael Kors

I wore the same dress last year to a Black Tie Charity Event.  I wore my hair up with some fun colored shoes and earrings, and it gave a different look to this little black dress.  Sometimes it pays to invest, or maybe that's what I'll tell myself-ha!  This dress deserves a post all by itself.  I bought this dress right after I had my my second baby.  The fabric disguises everything.  I think the saleslady said, "well...it IS an Italian dressmaker." SOLD!  LBD - La Petite Robe by Chiara Boni at Nordstrom, Earrings - Kendra Scott
