LBD + Dolce Statement Shoes

The Little Black Dress is a coveted piece in every fashion girl’s closet. Trying to look classy for a wedding? LBD. Trying to get your flirt on at a first date? LBD. The LBD can literally do no wrong. But, you can only wear be photographed in something so many times before the inevitable: outfit repeater status. Now I am all about maximizing your outfit usage. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. The key is to accessorize. Adding pops of color and unexpected textures can turn your LBD into a whole new look.

Last week, I hosted a private brunch at Blue Door Farm Stand with 40 of my best babes for a little celebration. We were celebrating something BIG so when I went to slip on my favorite LBD,  I opted for boots that would make a statement. And my goodness did these Dolce & Gabbana boots do just that. Talk about unlikely textures! Between the jacquard floral print, emerald snakeskin heel, and jeweled buckles, these boots are the definition of a statement. Sometimes I just stare at them sitting in my closet. But they are too beautiful not to be appreciated! Unfortunately these babies are one of a kind, but I linked some of my other fave statement shoes below.


Even a simple (or not so simple) shoe choice can make a huge difference in your look. Maybe it’s a Python Skin Chanel bag or a chic All Saints Moto Jacket, regardless adding that extra oomph to your LBD will really help up your game, ladies.

*Editor’s note: I know you’re probably all wondering what our little celebration was all about it. While I can’t dish out exactly WHAT we were celebrating just yet, I can tell you that it is going to be BIG. You’ll find out soon enough, I promise ;). Stay tuned!
