You should never underestimate the power of a little black dress (aka LBD). I think that a LBD is one of the most versatile pieces in your closet. When I slip on a LBD, like I am a five-year-old who put on a super hero cape. I feel fearless and ready to take on the world! Some people have power suits but I have power dresses. Maybe this is the reason why I own about ten! If you remember, a few weeks ago I swore off purchasing another black dress, You can see how long that lasted! Let's all take a moment to laugh. My name is Lindsey, and I have a problem.

Let's get back to talking about why LBDs are so great! You can dress it up or down with accessories and shoes. This dress can work for date night with your man, or a girls night. I could really see it working for you if you happened to have an upcoming black dress bachelorette party! I call this an easy button outfit. Please tell me you remember those office supply store commercials, "Whoa, that was easy."

Why do I call this an easy button outfit? Well all you have to do is toss on a necklace, lipstick, and out the door, you go! The Tobi opposites attract black, maxi dress caught my eye. The neckline with the lace detail made my heart skip a beat! However, when I was styling it, I decided that the neckline was a little too low for me. That was an easy fix with a safety pin. Every girl needs a few safety pins lying around for a moment like this! Let's be real, I am not a seamstress, and I didn't want to take it in for alterations. It almost feels like a sexy slip dress. I had to be really mindful when walking outside in that Oklahoma wind. Don't get me wrong, I am totally down to show a little leg (wink, wink).

Let's talk accessories! How great is this dainty necklace? A few years ago, I made a connection with Dana Pruitt. She owns and operates a jewelry business via Etsy. Her designs are handmade, and custom. Bonus, her jewelry is also at an excellent price point! I am telling you, prepare to stand out when you wear this necklace, it is really that unique! I don't know about you, but I love finding things that are a little different. I also love this necklace because it's orange and black, perfect for Oklahoma State University game days and Orange Fridays in Stillwater. These beautiful beaded earrings are sold out in orange. There are two colors left, and they are on final sale right now at J. Crew. This dress honestly could pull off any color pairing. Go ahead get creative!
