A few weeks ago, I was invited to participate in “The Little Black Dress Tours America.” The event, hosted by Society Stylist, asked 31 bloggers to style a basic black dress to suit their own sense of style.
The dress in question was a shirred shirtdress from Ann Taylor (if you like the dress you can save 20% on it here). I thought the dress was really cute on its own, but styling it proved to be a bit of a challenge. But I was happy with the final product, even if we had to employ some strategic Blackberry placement to protect my secret identity.
As for my favorite look so far, I love how Lilliana from Cheap Chica styled her dress. My original idea included a ruffle vest from J. Crew, but the dress wasn’t available. And thank goodness, because Lilliana’s vest look was so cute, I’m not sure I would have been able to compete!
If you’d like to see how I styled the little black dress, head over to the Society Stylist to see all the looks from the past 12 days.
For being a participant in The Little Black Dress, I received the Ann Taylor dress free of charge. However, I was not compensated with a monetary payment. But a free dress is a free dress right?
