How To Make An Old LBD New Again

Erica from Erica’s Fashion and Beauty and I have collaborated to show you two ways to make that old little black dress you have in your closet new again!  We both shopped our closet and took an old piece and made it new for spring.

“Sometimes the best shopping can be done in your own closet! It is a fun challenge to give a forgotten clothing item new life by adding trendy accessories or a modern piece. My outdated LBD is a boring one-shoulder dress. It is amazing what a few Avon accessories, fabulous red lips, and a jacket can do for an outfit!”

Shopping my closet allowed me to take this old sleeveless mark. dress and make it new again by layering a collared shirt underneath.  Not only did it breath new life into my existing items it also created a wear to work style perfect for spring weather with the convertible sleeves.  Adding on the Avon Style Swap Ocean Ave Necklace gave it a little more sophistication and the mark. clutch and shoes made it fun!  This LBD look will easily be recreated again!

I’ve seen this trick, layering a blouse under a sleeveless dress, done by all the fashion girls, but I never though I could pull it off.  However, just trying it payed off!  A tip is to wear a cami, like an Express Best Loved Bra Cami, over the blouse to keep it in place and avoid bulk underneath your dress.

Taking On Trendy Details

Wearing the Avon Style Swap Ocean Ave Necklace tight around the collar is also a little trendy trick.  On a dress I normally wouldn’t wear a necklace with I added just the pearls of this necklace.  For a little pop I added a bright spring lip with mark.

Word Of Alicia Review: Avon Little Black Dress Fragrance Collection

Word Of Alicia:  Avon Little Black Dress Collection

Word Of Alicia: Avon Little Black Dress Collection

Because it’s Little Black Dress week here on the blog, inspired by Avon’s Little Black Dress Fragrance, figured I might as well review the scent that’s inspired the theme!

Avon Little Black Dress Fragrance Collection

Avon Little Black Dress Fragrance Collection

Description:  Our classic Little Black Dress scent has been modernized. It’s now an oriental/floral fragrance that’s versatile and stylish from day to night. A sparkling aroma of Italian lemon oil and elegant jasmine essence embellished with luxurious sandalwood.

The neckline of the Little Black Dress is like the top note of the fragrance; it is the greatest first impression she can make.

The waistline of the fragrance represents glamour, grace and captivating femininity.

The hemline of the fragrance was made to create a self-assured elegance to the wearer and lends a long-lasting impression that she takes with her wherever she goes.

Meet The Perfumer:  RODRIGO FLORES-ROUX

Rodrigo has a distinguished career in perfumery spanning over 20 years and several countries, including Mexico, France and the United States. In 2007, he re-joined the house of Givaudan, where he had his initial introduction to perfumery more than 15 years ago.

“Our muse for this fragrance was the iconic Little Black Dress, a universal symbol of sophistication that never goes out of style, reflecting the beautiful silhouette of a woman…her neckline, waistline and hemline.” – Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Master Perfumer and Little Black Dress Co-creator

Word Of Alicia:  My immediate thoughts were sophistication.  The bottle design alone suggest this.  I’d get it just to sit and look pretty.  To me it is a warm scent, but not old lady.   Like they said, is perfect for any occasion.  This would work for day or night, work or play.  It’s not overwhelming, it has a softness to it that makes it easy to wear.  It’s not like anything I own however it’s suppose to be similar to Victoria’s Secret Heavenly.  I really do feel a little empowered and womanly in it.  The lotion is really good too!  Usually these type of lotions are just ok, but this one is really moisturizing and the scent doesn’t “sting” you when you put it on.  Layered with the shower gel this is a pairing I’d buy again.  Staying power is pretty good too.  Lasts the work day for me.  At $25 for all 3 I’d say it’s a definite!  If you’re unsure comment or dm me I’ll send you a free sample!

LBD Collection:  In addition Avon released a fashion collection to go with the scent.  My top pick from it is the Avon Signature Laser-Cut Little Black Dress.  It’s similar to this mark. one I have so I didn’t get it but if you missed out on that one GET THIS ONE!  I LOVE the dress, the fit and the versatility of it.  Also the Avon Style Swap Ocean Drive Necklace.  You can wear it 3 ways and it’s just that perfect accent for a LBD.

What Coat To Wear With A LBD

What Coat To Wear With A LBD

Punxsutawney Phil promised an early spring so it’s time to lighten things up!  Lighten up your look, lighten up your load with spring cleaning and lighten up your coat!  A spring coat is an absolute must have because even those warmer sunny days still have that spring chill.  A constant problem I find is finding the right spring coat to wear with work wear, dresses and more importantly my LBD.  I found the perfect solution with this mark. Soft Touch Trench Coat.

First, a little on the soft trench.  If you’ve noticed pretty much every cool girl on IG, pinterest, bloggers, etc. have a similar trench coat.  What makes it soft is it is not a constructed structured trench coat, it’s a fluid fabric that just flows with it’s loose shape.  If you’re a fan of the Express Portofino shirts think that only thicker.  Seriously, just hop on pinterest, you’ll see all the cool girls in them.  They wear them with jeans and a tee, over shorts, tanks and booties or over a really cute jumpsuit or romper.  I’ve been obsessing over this all white look Khloe Kardashian wore with a soft trench.

What I love about this mark. Soft Touch Trench is that it’s a classic trench coat color so it will go with everything and still look sophisticated even though it’s a loose shape.  In addition, the sleeves are convertible so that is just PERFECT as a top coat layer.  It looks more like part of your outfit then like you’re wearing a coat.  That why it’s the perfect coat for a little black dress.

Over a little black dress the mark. Soft Touch Trench really is the perfect solution for day or night, work or play, casual or glam.  Just like a little black dress it’s super versatile, functional and sophisticated.  I could not be more pleased that I bit the bullet and got this jacket.  At first the price had me, but then I started looking at other options in soft trenches and realized that for $65 it’s actually a really good price for the quality.  PLUS you can pair it with a 20% off promo (AVONFB60 at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger) and it makes it so worth it!
