the perfect little {black dress} accessories

As all us girls know that there is something about a little black dress--a magical piece in a closet of chaos that is perfect for any occasion. It is so versatile as even the simplest cut black dress can be worn for any event or at any time of day, that is with the right accessories. These are just some of my favorite additions to the little black dress. For a dinner out with clients...

(marni purse and banana republic necklace)
A night on the town...

(lanvin purse and pierre hardy t-strap sandals)
Or a day at the office...

(kate spade bangle, banana republic flats and marni bag)
When and where you do wear your little black dress?

I never really have opportunity to wear a little black dress. A few years ago I was a bridesmaid and got a strapless one, then wore it again to a wedding last summer...does that count?

As always, you've nailed all three looks! A little black dress is always perfect and I love how you show that the accessories can change the whole look. Would love to see you do this with other clothing items too!

Great dress! I love that, and I think it could be flattering on so many body types. I have one black dress in my wardrobe right now, but it doesn't hold a candle to this design.

Great dress, I bought a very similar one from JCrew last April - and I've worn it to my uncle's opening at an art gallery, work, and a few other places. I love it, and I feel like it already paid for itself. Great post!
