I was recently asked to style an LBD (little black dress) by Sainsbury’s as part of my involvement in their TU Clothing Fashion Blogger Community. They sent me their black ribbed ponte dress (also available in red) along with £20 Sainsbury’s vouchers to get whatever other bits I needed to complete my look. (If you’ve watched my weekly vlog you’ll already have seen it!)
Anyone who knows me will know that I like to keep it simple and classic. With my £20 voucher I purchased some gorgeous emerald green and gold jewellery including some rings, a necklace and some beautiful dainty bracelets that I thought would complement the dress perfectly.
I am a complete disaster when it comes to doing my hair. You’d think that by the age of 27 I’d have a couple of quick, simple tricks up my sleeve to take my hair from drab to fab but unfortunately not. The seemingly easy ponytail that features in this outfit post took me an embarrassingly long time and half a can of hairspray to put together – and was only really an option after several failed attempts at a beehive. Oops! I was desperate to include my new red glitter bow from Beauxoxo though as it’s the perfect Christmas accessory! (Don’t believe me, ask Zoella!)
As you can see, this dress would be suitable for any festive party occasion. It’s simple enough not to look too over-dressed if you’re just out for drinks with the girls but also classic enough to hold it’s own a work Christmas party. It wouldn’t even look out of place around the office. What more could you ask for from an LBD?
