The Challenge: "A little black dress (LBD) is essential in every woman's wardrobe. Adding a pop of colour to your LBD will change up its look and make your dress a little less boring. For this challenge, add a pop of colour (or two) to your little black dress to change up the look. You could add anything from an accessory to a blazer, or even nail polish!"
Soo...this is embarrassing, but do you ever read something and only retain the beginning and end, completely forgetting (or ignoring) the middle part? I read Jessy's challenge a few weeks back and remembered "LBD" ..."change up the look"..."add an accessory to a blazer"...but somehow completely missed the emphasis on color.
Today I went back to re-read her challenge and was like...huh?? Color?! So please pardon my derelict entry.

I wear my LBD's without much color nor adornment. I think the simplicity of a sleek black dress is what makes it classic and beautiful. However, when keeping it simple (and especially with black, which shows the outline of a garment very clearly) - a perfect fit becomes even more important.
These photos remind me of the little "fixes" this dress needs. This dress was one of my first alteration jobs and I sadly got it hemmed too short. It also needs to be slimmed along the hips.Elle. And oh, you like my luxe snakeskin "clutch" ? It's actually a makeup brush roll gifted from Jen ; )
