Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style and city living. Hope you have a nice stay!

The Not-So-Basic LBD

The classic little black dress sometimes gets a bad rap--they can def be boring, blah or basic, but when I spotted this LBD from Forever 21, I knew it was anything but. Sure, from the front, it's your typical black midi dress, but from the back, it's got some super cool bungee-cord-style strap action going on. I totally fell for it, AND I scored it on sale, for just $17. (Technically, even less, since I purchased it during a Buy One, Get One Free sale special. Seriously, if you're not on Forever 21's mailing list, get it on it for sale-on-sale alerts, stat!)

I wore the dress to a recent NYFW event, pairing it with a brand new pair of fresh white kicks ($30 from ASOS). This exact pair is sold out, but I found some very similar ones on ASOS here for $20, and here for $40.

I finished off the look with some $10 street vendor sunnies, and a thin silver choker, which was just under $2 on eBay. Adding in a gifted bag, c/o Furla, the whole outfit came out to just under $59.
