LLBD: Add a little more LEATHER to your Little Black Dress

Leather is hot. It was hot last year, and it’s still going strong this fall/winter. It’s the perfect way to add edge to a feminine outfit. I am so glad I invested when I had the chance, I think I have 4 skirts and 3 pairs of pants in some form of faux leather, but I want more. Here is the thing though… what about the LLBD- little leather black dress? I don’t have one of those! In fact, I think I’m obsessed and it may have something to do with this little number I saw on SmitheryStyle.com.  It was infiltrating my dreams, I want one so bad!

Whether it’s this  Westly Vegan Leather Dress or the ones I have picked out for you below, consider how much wear you will get out of it! Layer a cozy sweater or cardigan over it, wear a turtleneck or blouse  underneath, the combination possibilities are endless. Have I convinced you yet, that this sexy thang is a must in your closet?!

Ottawa Street Style: Black and yellow

Every lady needs an LDB (a.k.a little black dress)!

It’s classic, versatile and flattering. I found this little gem and I absolutely love the way the full skirt gives an illusion of an hourglass waist. I adore the pockets too. I just wish the fabric around my waist was thicker, to make me look more svelte… you know what I mean?
I love combining this dark dress with a fun pop of yellow and subtle red, white and blue details of my wedges. This whole ensemble is great for a date or going out with the girls after work. Swap your work cardigan for a denim jacket and you have yourself a styled LBD for your next GNO (a.k.a. Girls night out!).

In these pictures, I am wearing:

This was part of a series of photos that I did with Kristy Chapman Photography. Enjoy!
