Sometimes, you just feel like wearing black on black on black, you hear me?  Lol.  It’s a feeling that you get.  Not a bad one, just a day that calls for all black!  🙂

What are your plans this weekend?  Tonight we are attending a fundraiser in Pittsburgh for Women’s Dress for Success!  It’s a wonderful charity that provides women who can’t afford a new suit or attire for a job interview with clothes that will make them look professional and land that job!  You’d be surprised how dressing for the job you really want can effect your chances!  Plus, it helps boost your confidence and make you feel even more capable of nailing that interview like a boss!  Can’t wait to find out more tonight!

I think every woman’s wardrobe should consistent of at least one LBD (little black dress for those you new to this whole thing).  You always want to have one on hand that a) FITS you well, even if you were to gain or lose a few, b) is not overly trendy so that it can be worn for more than one season if need be c) could be dressed up or dressed down (throw a blazer or sweater over it for day while wearing flats, take it off for dinner and drinks and add heels from the back of your car, that’s what I do, haha!), and d) looks classy enough for proper occasions but sexy enough for date night with the right shoes and accessories!

I found this really cute LBD from TOPSHOP!  It is soooo comfortable!  It has an elastic waist only at the back that draws it in, so no zippers that you have to stuff yourself into and then can’t breathe or eat all night.  Victory!  I love that it has a nice v-neckline, so it elongates your neck and you can wear some pretty necklaces to accessorize this look.  The length isn’t too short or too long.  The fabric is so silky and smooth!  It’s perfect for a romantic date night.  I love the balloon sleeve accents to give it a more fashion forward and trending look!

I paired this with some peep-toe suede booties that I’ve had in my closet for a while now.  I love the look of booties with a dress.  I also chose my favorite TOPSHOP bucket bag.  The gold detailing really dresses things up.  I went with my favorite coin necklaces to match the bag, and my go-to gold hoop earrings!

I’ve compiled a list of other really cute LBDs for $100 (I think there is only one that is $100), and less!  I’ve also linked everything I am wearing in these photos, too!  Be sure to click the arrow on the right side of the product widget to see all of the dresses that I linked!  Happy shopping! Where do you like to wear LBDs?  Do you have a go-to brand for dresses?  Let me know in the comments 🙂

One thing I’ve always loved about fall fashion are the rich colors!  I love the deep, warm tones.  They always bring out the best in people’s skin tones, eyes, and highlights in the hair.  Plus, they feel warm and cozy, and who doesn’t love that?  I am obsessed with this copper color for fall this year!  I’ve been seeing it everywhere and I think it is so pretty.  It reminds me of cinnamon sticks 🙂  I was really excited to find a cute wrap dress in this color!

My all-time favorite style of dress is the wrap dress!  It is universally flattering on every figure, not to mention almost always very comfortable, too!  It accentuates a woman’s most attractive features, the waist and the curves!  You might think that drawing attention to the waist might bring unwanted attention to that area if you’re self-conscious about it, but it actually gives you much more of an hour glass shape than a shapeless dress like a shift dress might.   I like the fact that wrap dresses have a v-neckline because it also elongates the neck, making you look leaner and longer!

This dress is by C/MEO.  If you have never heard of this brand, you should make note of it!  It’s one of my favorites.  Their collection is really trendy and modern, yet they keep it very classy!  This piece is super comfortable.  I love the silky fabric, it has such a pretty sheen to it.  The statement sleeves are right on trend with the gathered detail and billowing.

I kept this look neutral with nude heels and handbag.  My earrings are my current favorite by Vanessa Mooney!  Such a fun take on the classic gold hoop! They are so cute and versatile!

I’ve linked this wrap dress, my shoes, bag, and accessories, as well as some other wrap dresses I love for this season!

This one is for all my homies dying to get into fall fashion!  My first true autumn look.  One of my favorite things to do with clothes is to mix different textures and patterns.  It makes everything look so interesting and gives it depth and dimension.  When I think of fall, I always think of leather and plaid!  Who doesn’t have a favorite fall flannel, plaid accent home pieces for Thanksgiving, a leather moto jacket, or favorite leather boots they love to pull out when the cooler temps hit, am I right?

When I saw this top by Lovers + Friends, I had to have it! I love the deep, rich colors, and the fact that it is a surplice top (it overlays in the front).  It reminds me of the plaid pants my mom used to wear (and put me in, too) back in the 90s, with penny loafers, of course!  No one ever made fun of me and my fancy penny loafers, LOL!  It’s really lightweight and silky, so it’s perfect when the weather hasn’t quite hit full on sweater season.  It can always be worn with denim and a long cardigan or mini jacket when it gets colder.  But for now, it’s perfect paired with a (faux) leather mini skirt for a fun night out!

This skirt by Lovers + Friends is super cute with the zipper details and snake skin texture!  I’m thinking ahead to pairing it with an oversized ivory sweater, or black turtleneck top with boots!  It is really versatile.  It’ll be great for the holiday season, too!  Am I the only person who immediately has the holidays on their mind when September hits?  I’m a total freak when it comes to holidays, especially Christmas!  Let the countdown begin! 😀

As for more added texture to this outfit, I chose a suede block heel.  I love to wear suede when I am wearing other leathers, faux or not, because it adds another element to the outfit.   I don’t think leather on leather is bad at all, I just think you have to be careful not to overdo it.  Too much of it can start to look harsh.  Suede shoes with a leather skirt, pants, or shorts is always a safe bet!

Unfortunately, this skirt is currently sold out, but I have hopes that they will bring it back in stock!  I’ve also seen this top paired with black leather paper bag shorts, which I will linked below, along with a much more affordable faux version that will likely also be back in stock, so keep your eyes peeled for that if you’re into those.  I’ve also linked another leather mini if you like that look, too!
