LBDs are super versatile, so, just like with any other event, you can dress up or down the look any way you like. Grab a LBD for Halloween, and turn it into a super classic and classy look, like a witch, vampire, or black cat with simple accessories.

Ready to dress up for Halloween? We sure are! Whether you plan to dress up as a super spooky spirit, a stunningly sexy witch, a purrfectly cute cat, or you're still looking for ideas, there's one simple solution to just about any Halloween outfit: a Little Black Dress!

A little black dress is not only a versatile look for your classic party, but for a little Halloween fun, too, so don't be afraid to get creative.

You could even rock an LBD to get Lauren Conrad's Party Animal Halloween look. Continue reading

December is officially here, and that means there are plenty of holiday parties to come, from office parties to New Year's Eve! Holiday parties are always super fun, especially because it means dresses are so essential to a perfect holiday wardrobe. While we love the idea of rocking sparkly silver, gold, red, green, and blue dresses for the holidays, there's one look that can't be forgotten because of its simplicity and dependability for any event you may be attending over the next month: little black dresses! So, to help you find a perfect LBD to take you from party to party, here are four of our favorite looks..all under $100!
For a classic and super classy look go with jeweled neck party dress Gracia D15016. The cap sleeves and jeweled neckline makes this an easy dress to take you from day to night. If you want to get away from the classic LBD, but still wear a color appropriate for the holidays, Continue reading
Little Black Dress Halloween Costumes for a Witchin' Good Look!
Halloween is so close, and we're getting excited to dress up as our favorite characters on the 31st! It's always difficult to choose and put together your costume, but there's one great way to look super chic for Halloween: little black dresses!
Little black dresses are so versatile, and always chic, so we love the idea of pairing an LBD with your favorite Halloween accessories for a glamorously ghoulish look. Two dresses that we particularly love are shown above: Night Moves style 6658 and Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415.
We love Night Moves 6685 to rock a sexy glam rock vampire look. Sexy and sophisticated, this dress features a sheer illusion sleeve detail accented with crystals. The long sleeves makes it perfect for a cold fall Halloween night, and allows it to easily transition into winter for a Holiday Party dress (we especially love this look for New Year's Eve)! For Halloween, just pair it with vampire teeth, dark red lipstick, dark red or purple eyes, and glamorous red jewelry. We also love the idea of pairing it with a leather jacket to complete that glam rock look.
In the above outfit, we paired the LBD with Helen's Heart style JE-4601-10 red earrings, Rihanna by Night Moves platform high heels, and Magid E7496 beads and rhinestones satin box clutch. All items that you can easily rock again for Homecoming, Prom, or the Holidays!
Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415 is perfect to rock a witch look for Halloween! This jeweled neck dress features body defining style lines, open sides, and an invisible back zipper. For Halloween, pair it with a chic witch hat, a witch's broom, and funky jewelry. for an extra witchy look, pair it with striped stockings - we love either orange and black or purple and black striped stockings for that classic witch look.
To finish off this look, we paired the dress with Magid E7486 jeweled box clutch, Hyacinth Crystal Chandelier Earrings JF103E32G3, and Baylee by Sizzle sexy beaded pumps.
Of course, a little black dress is so easy to dress up in any way, so whether a classic Halloween look like a vampire or a witch that we showed above...or something a little less scary like a 1920s flapper girl or cute black cat...you'll be able to rock a totally haute Halloween look, and then take that dress right into the Holidays and New Year!

Latest Must-Have Fall & Winter Trends
Each year, fashion gets more and more unpredictable. With so many great trends to follow this Fall, we had to narrow them down to just three.
Say YES to White after Labor Day!
Lots of rule-breaking trends this season, including the always infamous no white after Labor Day rule. These rebellious celebs are going against the rules of fashion by keeping white throughout the fall and winter. It's all about how you accessorize and the type of fabric.
This is one trend you can use for your next formal event; it's definitely perfect for the Holidays. If anyone comments that you're not supposed to be wearing white, they're just not up on the latest fashion trends!
Sherri Hill style 2948 White Cocktail Dress has the right fabric and the intricate beading to still give it that fall or winter look. This stunning dress would be great for homecoming..a cocktail party..or even an upcoming holiday party. Continue reading
Fangtastic Halloween Style with LBDs!
With Halloween only a week away, our newsletter this week was all about dressing up for the day of fright, fun, and lots and lots of candy! If you didn't get our newsletter, or just didn't get a chance to read it, we wanted to make sure write a post about it, as well, as we know how difficult it can be to put a perfect Halloween outfit together.
If you're stuck on what to wear, finding a sexy little black dress is always a choice you can count on. Two LBDs that we especially love for Halloween are Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee style 9200 and Dave & Johnny 8580.
Mori Lee 9200 is a strapless sweetheart cocktail dress with all over lace details. It's a sexy look that also comes in a Black/Nude color that can be paired with so may different accessories to make a limitless amount of different Halloween looks.
Dave & Johnny 8580 is a dress that we posted a few days ago in our Get Bewitched and Vamped Up for Halloween blog post. It's a dress that's a perfect combination of cute and sexy with the sheer, lace, sparkle, and tulle details.
Pair your favorite LBD with stand-out heels like Touch Ups Blake Platform Boot Pump or Baylee by Sizzle Black Beaded Pumps to finish off the dark, sophisticated look. Then, just pick out the accessories of the Halloween character you'd like to be, such as a witch's hat, a masquerade mask, cat ears, or a floral headband and Dia de Los Muertos face paint, to get that FANGtastic Halloween style!
‘Pretty Little Liars’ Season 4 Premiere: A is for A-l-i-v-e
Pretty Little Liars is back, and with a vengeance, for its Season 4 Premiere! The episode, which aired on June 11, was called "A is for A-l-i-v-e," and it definitely got our hearts racing, as usual. Marlene King, executive producer, promised that this would be the "season of answers," and she definitely wasn't kidding around! The premiere episode already cleared up almost every "A" related question that's still been lingering around, while still adding a dozen more to the list!
We don't want to ruin the episode for those fans who haven't watched it yet, so we'll leave it at that, and instead focus on what else, but the fashion! Black's always been a big Pretty Little Liars color, but we especially loved it in this episode! All of the girls were wearing cute little black dresses (except for Hanna Marin, played by Ashley Benson, who added a totally chic sheer long skirt to her look), with sexy high heels to match. We loved the dresses so much that we picked out our favorite black cocktail dresses. Now you can rock these PLL style to your next event! And, since little black dresses never go out of style, don't be afraid to stock up on these looks! Continue reading
