Lookbook: What's the Tee--an LBD

7/01/2013

I've had this little black dress for a couple months, and I've been wanting to wear it for a couple of months but other ensembles got in the way. But the beauty of the LBD is that it's always a go and truly versatile.After I saw Emma Stone rocking a Lanvin LBD in the InStyle June issue, I knew that was a look I could recreate with this piece. How cute is the addition of the white tee? My take on this look:| Nasty Gal Alexa bow dress | House of Harlow crescent cuff c/o The Trend Boutique | Jason Wu for Target top | Darkvador Rose laptop sleeve c/o Caseable | DSW Luxe810 Herve Leger leather collar sandals |And what do you think of my accessories? Being the big Star Wars fan that I am, I couldn't resist getting this Darkvador sleeve from caseable that's made from recyclable materials and durable neoprene. Now I'll never be able to hide my love of all things geek in public any more, lol.My crescent cuff is also a show stopper with its red epoxy center and dangling gold tassels. It's my first piece from Nicole Richie's House of Harlow line and I'm loving it--aren't you?So muses, what do you think of this look?

  20. OMG, you are as cute as a button! Killer shoes, and I dig the Vader bag. Sadly, the only fashion sense I have is deciding on weather to pair my shorts with my Ghostbusters T-Shirt, or my Ninja Turtles T-shirt. Oh yeah, and a nice pair of worn Birkenstock sandles tie the ensemble together. :)
