Little Black Dress and a Top Hat




"One is never overdressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress”
 - Carl Lagerfield.

I love this outfit so hard. My initial reaction to it? THIS IS ONE HELLUVA LITTLE BLACK DRESS AND I AM IN LOOOOOVE! It’s lacy, its got pops of color and a fun little top hat that added an oomph and spiced it all the way up. Charming! So freaking adorable! Hello FI Readers, welcome back!

Women all over count on the proven allure of the LBD for almost every event. This is not your typical LBD though. It's one made out of intricate lace, a fabric that no woman can get enough of whether it's in the form of lingerie, dresses or even accessories. The stretchy lace fabric made this LBD hug every curve and fit like a glove as the saying goes. So figure flattering and edgy! 

The best part is that a dress like this fits right on every body type as long as the cut is right. Find that medium where it's not too tight and not too loose or those gorgeous curves are swallowed up and one could actually ends up looking at least 10 pounds heavier. Instead of trying to hide behind the fabric, put the pesky mid section bulges in their place with a great shape wear. You may not look thinner but you'll have a smooth silhouette.

Wear it by itself for a party perfect and chic ‘that’s hot’ look (sorry but you may have to tell folks to stop staring, hehe) or rock it as a top with shorts or leggings underneath. Pair it with pattern tights for a lovely print on print effect. Pair it with heels for that mind blowing ‘legs for days’ effect. And just because its lace doesn't limit it to nighttime. Throw a blazer over it or a slip underneath for a daytime look just not for the workplace. It’s versatility is unmatched.

This sexy stunner came with a top hat mounted on a head band. I went for that mysterious touch by pulling the netting over my face. Head pieces are really having a moment with me, hehe. Rocked a veiled beanie last week and boy did I love it! So trendy.

I bet you’re like stop blabbing and just tell us where to get this. Hehe. Alright, one word - ADAOBIGOGO. Young Las Vegas based designer known for her penchant for designing avant grade pieces is the brain behind this beauty. I am always in awe of just how spectacular her designs are. Her custom made pieces will have you ready to flutter wherever the evening takes you. So so fun! Look her up on iG @ADAOBIGOGO to place orders or make inquiries.

Are you showing your LBDs love still or have you dissed them already? Is it all about the little ‘white’ dresses for now? Hello Summer, lol...
