An LBD twist

The last few weekends at school before Christmas break always seem more exciting than all the other ones. Take, for instance, the fact that we had this event happen made the weekend 10 times more exciting than normal. Add to that a university-wide Christmas party and a senior dinner where we got to dress up, and you’ve got one exciting, fun-filled weekend on your hands. Here’s the breakdown:

Dress: Elder Beerman
Tights: Simply Vera via Kohl’s
Booties: Elle via Kohl’s
Clutch: Old Navy
Bracelets: Elder Beerman/Dillard’s/My grandma’s
Lipstick: Revlon in Peach

For this particular fancy event, I didn’t want to do the typical all-black outfit, which often consists of an LBD, black tights (sometimes textured) and black (sometimes red) platform heels. I wanted to do something different and something I was slightly unsure of. For this particular night, that meant going tone-on-tone with my tights and booties, and although the tones don’t quite match exactly, I’d say they work pretty well together!
