Sequins & Stilettos: The LBD

Meet Skylette! We have become such great friends over time all thanks to this lovely little blogosphere. We may be on opposite sides of the country but maybe one day our paths will cross. She has a killer collection of shoes, an amazing sense of style, AND to top it all off she's gorgeous!

Hey Everyone!  I'm Skylette from Sequins & Stilettos and I'm excited to be guest posting for Danielle while she takes a breather for a bit.  Are you as excited for her growing little bundle of joy as I am?  I'm a working mama of three and love my children to the moon and back, and whenever someone else starts that phase in life, I become overjoyed.  Okay... moving on...

I work in a professional office and needed a great LBD - keeping in mind it had to be office appropriate.  I scored this number from ASOS and have worn it more times than I'd care to share - it's simple, professional and can be remixed a number of ways.  Here I just used a wide belt and some leopard print shoes to spice things up a bit:

The possibilities are endless and the dress has worked for winter, spring, summer and now fall.  I can't wait to layer with scarves and trench coats!

Outfit Details:  asos sexy pencil dress / white house black market belt and cami
j crew pia calf hair shoes / bag from the buckle

I also purchased the same dress in purple (seen here) and red (here) and have remixed the black (here, and here).  If you need a great dress, I suggest giving this one a try.  One piece of advice for ASOS ordering is to order one size up - the "US Size 6" fits more like a true 4, and so on.  Hope that helps, thanks for reading and have a great weekend!


  1. I love a good LBD and you did a great job accessorizing!

  2. Gorgeous!! Especially love the belt with the dress!! You look fabulous!

  3. You are the reason I bought this dress. It's a closet staple for me.

  4. Another great post from a great gal. I just love her!
