Where are you going in your LBD? I’m going to a cocktail party with my girlfriends.

Why do you love this LBD? I wanted something upscale and special; something I wouldn’t wear on just any given Friday.

How did you accessorize your look? I picked the gold watch because it added some color and sparkle to my simple black dress and it was a good attention grabber. I chose the clutch because it helped bring the watch and shoes together to give it a complete look and also because the clutch really took the dress from casual to upscale.

What type of hair and makeup complete this look? My hair inspiration was something chic and sexy — that’s why I chose the ponytail or loose updo. I didn’t want something uptight and serious because I am young and want to have fun in my LBD. I wanted a makeup look that was dramatic enough to go with an upscale LBD but not too much, that’s why I stuck with a lighter complexion and darker eyes.
