Black Midi Dress from L.K. Bennett I have been on the hunt for the perfect LBD.  I mean, think about how often you need to find yourself needing a black dress. Whether it be an event for fun or work, a LBD is necessary. This one from L.K. Bennett has become my new favorite because I can wear it year round.

You have heard it time and again, but there really is nothing more classic than a Little Black Dress.

In this case, a LBD that can be worn for a night out or to run errands makes for an A+ in my book. While I was in New York, I told you I popped into OTTE in Nolita. Other than the fact I wanted to move into the cozy store and make all of the goodies inside my own, I decided to focus on finding a classic piece that I could bring home with me. For some time I have been lusting over the Ellen Dress because of its unique, but oh so classic silhouette. As I was shuffling through the perfectly organized racks, I came across the one; a black xs.  It was meant to be. Let’s just say, I now want the Ellen Dress in every color and pattern.

Other than the fact that I wanted to walk out of the store in my new dress (that might have been a little embarrassing), I did wear it the very next day for my last Fashion Week shows and meeting, then again on the airplane with a crop sweater and these shoes, then again when I got back to Dallas for date night with Patrick. Other than my obsession with the Ellen Dress, other Otte Signature pieces are high on my wish list like; this amazing fur vest, the Sylvia Pebble Top, the Jackie Dress, this hat, and this sweater.

Karl Lagarfeld once said no one is overdressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.

For me, this statement is so true. I am always more confident when wearing black and this ASOS LBD is no exception. Don’t you just love when you find a dress for all occasions?  I can wear it running errands with these sandals on the weekend or pair it with some heels  and a leather jacket for a girls night out.  Honestly, its been the best $30 I ever spent (Yep, you heard me right just $30.). Here are a few of  my favorite LBD’s that are currently on sale!

Personally, I think you should put on your favorite LBD and hit the town tonight! Happy Friday!

Another week on the books, and let me tell ya folks I really never thought it was going to end.  With the Holidays approaching at a rapid pace, these weeks leading up to all of the fun are seriously dragging. I have so many fun things planned for this blog as well as lots of traveling this holiday season that I cannot wait to share! So this weekends plan involves getting ahead of all of my work because next week starts my official kick- off to the Holidays! 

If you are in the shopping mood, there are tons of great sales happening. I found this amazing GAP coat for 40% off and J.Crew is having a crazy good sale- an extra 40% off sale items.  This statement necklace is perfect for a basic black sweater. If you are looking for a party dress, Anthro is having an extra 20% off. Seriously obsessing over this green number, this LBD and really wanting this figure flattering mini.  Happy Weekend loves!
