Wear: The Infamous LBD

necklace: metal marvels [use code LIYSPECIAL for 25% off] // dress: target

There is nothing I love more [other than sweatpants] than a great little black dress. Always flattering, always in style, and always the right amount of “enough”. While the black dress is a main contender in creating the perfect look, it’s the accessories that make it what it is. It’s kinda like Luke Bryan without his hip thrusting. Sure, he is fine without it…but with it, drool is formed. Make sense now? 
When I found this necklace I knew that I had to have it. Partly because it’s awesome and partly because I would be an idiot not to own it. I like to remain off the idiot list as often as possible [which is basically never] so fortunately, I had no choice but to own it. I’m not sure if you have shopped at metal marvels before but it’s rather what I like to call, dangerous. Take this headband for example. Have I ever worn a little number like this before in my hair? No. Do I absolutely 100% without a doubt need to try it now that I found this? Duh. Hence my previously stated dangerous comment. I MEAN HOW CUTE WOULD THIS BE IN YOUR HEAD? Exactly.
Katie, the owner of this fabulous store would like to take a minute or two to share a little more with you. She may or may not have a thank you gift in return 😉 But seriously, time to sparkle up your life. YOLO baby.
