Date Night & The Little Black Dress

Have nothing to wear? I am pretty sure you have a black dress sitting in your closet. Though it may seem a bit boring to wear black, it is however all in your accessories.

Wearing black typically makes me feel sexier and slimmer, especially for a date night. As mentioned above, accessories play a key role in your overall look.

For example, this simple dress by JLuxlabel.com is both sexy and form fitting but not too revealing. I paired it with python earrings or "Black Mamba" as my best friend Zakiya like to call them from Patricia Field. She was the designer for Sex and the City the series.  

The shoes are indeed the show stopper. Picked those up at a showroom in Manhattan and once I laid my eyes on these beauties, it was love at first sight. This textured gold and black pumps by Christian Siriano (Gold Edition) for Payless were the perfect match. Remember, heels are your friend. Why you say? It elongates your legs.  

When accessorizing a simple black dress, get creative. Choose your favorite color combination and don't be afraid to be different. The possibilities are endless! Think of it as a blank canvas and you are the artist. Create darling!!
