Despite being a fashion and style lover, I’ve actually never really liked the quintessential Little Black Dress. Did you just gasp because of my style confession? To be honest I’ve always thought that the LBD is  tad boring.



But I always keep an open my mind and I am more than ready to do new things to broaden my horizons. So here I am.  When I saw this little black wrap dress with balloon sleeves I knew it cannot be turned town. Moral of this story: interesting details can really up the ante of any outfit.



Dress: Asos, Clutch: Next, Heels: Clarks, Earrings: Swarovski, Necklace: H and M, Bangles: India, Lips: Bodyshop Ruby Sparkle 

I’ve added small dark pink earrings and bangles as well as blush pink statement necklace and rose gold heels for more pizzazz. A dash of red lipstick plus black kohl and you are ready to be a drama queen up for any theatrics.

Yves Saint Laurent very wisely stated that the most important part in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.  This is exactly why I never let a brand/label define me.  Fashion and styling is a language and it should be strictly yours. So, as I say always make your own rules. You owe it to yourself!
