Little Black (Quilted) Dress Part. 3

Keeping this post short and sweet because (A) I got home super late from NYC on Sunday night and (B) I am heading out to D.C for the remainder of the week for work. That means I need to spend the few days at home unpacking and packing.

In this final installment of wearing my LBQD, I gave it a total makeover. By adding an extra layer underneath, I instantly transformed it into a jumper. That extra layer is a great way to winterize a dress, carrying it across multiple seasons. The layering possibilities are endless! Just think about all the long-sleeve shirts and button downs you own.

For finishing touches, I went for a total sparkler to accentuate the neckline and a hot pink skinny belt to accentuate the waist. Accentuate, ladies!

All right, I’m out! Time to catch that flight to D.C. I’ll say hi to the Prez for ya!
