Accessorizing A Little Black Dress



Being in the city has provided many opportunities for enjoying dinner out. A LBD is perfect for that last minute plans. Though sidewalks are dry and snow free in the city, the boulevards are often covered in high piles (of now frozen hard) snow - so boots are required.
Dress: Zara - (from 8 years ago)
Boots: Black leather (from 8 years ago)

Simple accessories are perfect for the LBD.
Watch: Cartier Tank Francaise
Bracelet: Protection Eye from a street market in Turkey

Recently I was the lucky winner of a giveaway hosted by Celia Lindsell whose boutique is filled with amazing Lifestyle Accessories. I first learned of Celia Lindsell via her blog when I read about her fabulous Lavender Honey on another blog ( I can't recall the blogger) a couple of years ago. I did order some honey and let me tell you it is absolutely YUMMY!!!


Back to the giveaway ... I was beyond thrilled when I learned that I was the winner of these GORGEOUS fur wrist warmers... These warm and elegant pure wool Wrist Warmers are trimmed with the softest Eco Possum Fur and lined with pure silk. They can be worn under a jacket or coat and are the perfect winter accessory for evening wear.

I decided to pair mine with my LBD and think they were a perfect accent! ~ got lots of compliments when out for dinner. I didn't get a photo with my coat - but they really added a touch of elegance. Thank you Celia Lindsell for the beautiful items you carry in your boutique.

P.S. - the fur wrist warmers are available in camel (the ones I chose), jet black and winter white.

How do you accessorize your little black dress?

  3. Dearest Celia,
    Congrats on being able to wear your LBD from 8 years ago! What an accomplishment and such elegant dresses are timeless. How surprising to see Possum fur being used as a way to balance out an over population and for creating stunning fur pieces.
    Enjoy your new addition.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  4. That LBD looks great on you!! I have a couple LBDs, and I tend to alternate between pairing them with all black accessories or with a couple bright colors instead.
