Dress: Topshop // Shoes: DSW // Bag: Similar

This isn’t my first little black dress themed post and it certainly won’t be my last.  I am pretty sure my closet will never have enough of them but my most recent find is one of my favorites to date.  This slip dress is so simple making it easy to dress up, as shown below, or down- think tennis shoes and a jean jacket.  I am all for versatility and this has me covered, literally (well, somewhat). I have been purchasing a lot of great pieces from Topshop (via Nordstrom) lately and have not been disappointed.  I’ll be wearing this tank under all my cardigans this Fall, and this is another keeper that I’ve received several compliments on.  I will say that as a European brand I find most of the items to run a bit small.  My hips don’t lie but the size on the tags of this dress do, or so I tell myself. I also have to mention this new beauty of a bag.  I am such a sucker for the Kate Spade Outlet sales.  Every so often the entire store is 40% off and then…an extra 20% off!  When a bag is over $200 off you buy it and don’t look back, unless you see another one that you want.

    This is the perfect LBD! You can dress it up for an evening out or wear it casually with a denim jacket on top. You look so cute and I absolutely love how you styled it!

    jess–another day another LBD. the slip dress is something i’ve been contemplating. i mean it’s still hot enough here to wear it. i love how it looks on you maybe because you are helluv tall?! i can’t get enough of your posts you crack me up, “My hips don’t lie but the size on the tags of this dress do” LOL no but is so true though i’m like a size 6. it’s like H&M jacked up sizing. LOL. KS does have some good sales tho esp at the outlet. that’s how they get you. “buy it and don’t look back, unless you see another one that you want.” now that is #solidadvice. #jessmademedoit. ackahaha! love you babe xoxo,
