This season, I decided to treat myself to a new black dress from Eva Mendes’ Collection for New York & Company. Mendes’ Holiday Collection officially launched on Dec 2, and I am so excited to feature this look with you today! Getting all decked out for the holidays doesn’t mean donning around in your PJs, but instead play around for the holidays! Eva Mendes designed so many wonderful styles for New York & Company this upcoming holiday season, and I must admit: I had a hard time choosing my favorites! Her whole collection is beyond beautiful, however, with so many parties, family gatherings and work obligations, I decided on a Little Black Dress (LBD) with a few fun adjustments from her collection.

Black and gold is a popular color combination right now hence I decided to pair my little black dress with a fun gold clutch. It’s a perfect way to show my holiday spirit without being too over-the-top. I also love the idea of styling your Little Black Dress with colorful accessories, such as shoes and make-up. For instance, add some red heels to your LBD and I guarantee you that you will turn heads as well. It’s a perfect way to jazz up your black dress.

Now you tell me: How would you style your Little Black Dress? As always, I would love to hear from you, and thanks so much for reading!

Much love.

    I’d wear some like that to a Christmas dinner. Looks so classy. I usually end up styling a LBD in gold as well.

    Lovely black dress! The Eva Mendes collection is so gorg!

  33. December 14, 2015 / 3:07 PM

    I’ve missed your blooog, I got so swamped with finishing production work on my TV show that I had to check out of the blogosphere for a bit, but I still found the time to show my cousin your blog, she looved your ring (yellow diamong? I’m so bad with these things). Ok back to you- looove this dress: how good does it look on you? Let me count the ways… the scalloped hem, black peekaboo lace- YaassS Honey! I’d style a LBD very similarly to how you did it- Black and Gold is my thing, as are embellished accessories. That clutch is divine but I’m too clumsy and stuff too much in my evening bag for an intsy bitsy bag like that…tsigh…( :
