{STYLE} LBDs for the Holidays

Photos by Lydia Hudgens

Ever since I spotted this cape dress, I knew it had to make its way to my wardrobe, and have since worn it to my friends Alyssa & Jon's wedding, to a couple of cocktail parties, and plan to wear it throughout the holiday season. It's the LBD-with-a-twist that I referenced yesterday, and one that makes me want to twirl around and unleash my inner vamp (this, in "Bette," helps) all at once. 

As I stock up on my arsenal of holiday dresses (yes, I need a few in rotation), I'm focusing myself on specific categories: a chic LBD (check), an ultra-glitzy number, and a bright jewel tone stunner. The best part about a great black dress, though, is that it can be completely transformed through your hair, makeup, and accessories. While this iteration of it feels super vampy to me, I also plan on wearing it with a high, polished bun, soft pink lip, and a couple strands of pearls with a box clutch for an Audrey Hepburn inspired feel. Next, all metallic accessories (I'm obsessed with this silver glitter clutch) with a bright red lip. Afterall, with more parties on my schedule than individual outfits to wear, versatility is key.

  20. Not surprisingly, ROB saw huge chanel replica losses over the last two years, but has rebounded since the market bottomed out in March louis vuitton replica. ROB is up more than 120% since the bear market lows earlier this year. Still, the fund is well below replica watches pre-recession levels, leaving plenty of room for further appreciation if this recovery continues to power along and consumers rolex replica regain their taste for luxury.
