Pedal Pushers

Why are there so many chic girls on bikes?! A fabulous bike may be my next purchase. It is so much faster than walking, and your legs get a great workout. Just something to keep in mind, ladies. 😉

Monochromatic Dream

dreamy textured coat with feathers

Love a simple monochromatic red

White for Winter

A monochromatic look is a petite woman’s dream. Wearing one color head to toe not only makes you look polished, but it also creates the illusion of being taller and thinner. This is incredibly effective with most neutrals and works with colors, too. But make sure that you choose a basic color, not prints. And mix it up with different textures and proportions, like our lovely Pinterest ladies above.

P.S. All of these looks are perfect for Valentines Day!

Low-Key with the Family

You may love getting all fancied up for holiday social events, but when going to see family or opening presents Christmas morning, low-maintenance is the way to go. If you have to leave your house, throw on a big, comfy sweater and jeans, put on minimal makeup, and go. When you wake up to open your gifts, leave your pajamas on. (For bonus points, wear a cute PJ set Christmas eve. Then, you don’t have to change the next morning. Instant outfit!) Happy Holidays from LBD Files!

Ready to Party?

Black Lace Scallop Dress

As the holidays creep closer, our social calendars begin to fill up with parties, visits to family and friends, and other fun occasions. Finding the perfect outfit for these outings can be very difficult, so my go-to is always a classic, fun little dress. Find one that you love. Look for dresses with fun details, whether it is lace (as seen on Taylor Swift), sequins, an interesting cut, beading, baroque print, or a standout color. Once you find the perfect dress, you can wear it over and over, switching up accessories and beauty. Rock a festive red lip and simple black pumps at a dinner party, and add a fur shawl, an arm full of baubles, and party heels for a night of cocktails. Belts, tights, bags, and earrings are some other great ways to mix it up. Either way, just have fun with your look. This is the best time of the year to experiment with sparkle.
