wear // little black dress

When I shoot weddings, my "work uniform" is usually some variation of the little black dress.  My aim is to look both professional and wedding-appropriate, dressy but not distracting (keeping both color and modesty in mind).

I'll occasionally digress from the black dress (I wore a dark teal to a wedding I photographed in December) but really, the LBD is my favorite, mostly because it gives me total freedom to embellish this relatively-blank canvas with my favorite fashion statements: accessories.

Look number one is the same I wore for my holiday party last month: shiny, sparkly, always-classy gold.

Look number two is all about mixing neutral black with its neutral cousin, brown.  I used to think black and brown together was simply unacceptable, but I've learned that when it's done right, it's a winning combo!

Last, but certainly not least, is the LBD with jewel tones.  Jewel tones are obviously most fashionable in autumn and winter, but I think keeping it monotone jewel tone is a good bet for spring and summer.  Especially since emerald is the official color of 2013.  And in cooler months (as in, right now), mix it up with a combination of aubergines, emeralds, fuchsias, and royal blues.

How do you "dress up" your little black dress?

Linking up with Lindsey & Lish!


  1. I love the one with gold accents! I so bad at accessorizing. I spend way too much putting my makeup that I'm so lazy with accessories. Haha

  2. I love all of these! But now I'm obsessing over that brown leather bag! ;)

  3. l love these combos-but I think the jewel tone one is what I would pick-I love me some color :)
