Yes, the LBD or Little Black Dress. We all know it has great potential, but we usually just add a pair of heels, some earrings and out the door we go.
During the season of holiday parties here is an example of one dress that you can dress up and dress down.
The most important rule of all: find a dress that is good for your body type. If you must have a v-neck or an a-line, find the one that works best and buy it. It will be your anchor piece for years to come!
Today, one dress, one pair of earrings and one handbag work with all three outfits (simplify!):
Each outfit is also paired with this pair of earrings by Temple St. Clair. AshBlue is hosting a trunk sale November 30 – December 1, 2012.

So, let’s make this work for a neighborhood open house, an after work party and dressy cocktail party.
Many times this type of party calls for a cut above mom-wear and more casual than your dressy work attire. Neighborhood parties are often held in the late afternoon through early evening. Think casual Friday work attire and you’ll be good to go.
After Work Party:
This is not the time to wear anything low cut or too short. And, remember, only two cocktails–that way you can giggle at others but not have anyone giggle about YOU. This outfit will take you from work to party.
Dressy Cocktail Party
See, one dress, one pair of earrings and one handbag can go a very long way this holiday season!
