I am a strong believer that the LBD can do no wrong. Which is why I have added 2 little black numbers to my wardrobe this winter. Not only do I find black very slimming for me, which is great especially at this time of year when dieting is the hardest thing imaginable! But I love how you can match it with near enough anything.
This year I finally jumped on the Zara bandwagon, I literally adore everything! So it was a no brainer this Christmas when looking for my staple pieces where I would look first. After a mere 30 minutes in there I came out with two outfits and a pair of shoes! That is why I LOVE Zara.
So firstly I picked up this very simple, classic black dress with a flouncy, skater style to it. Unfortunately the image below does the dress no justice as the dress looks a lot better on. I love how the fabric is thick and structured so it creates a beautiful shape when wearing it. The shape is also very flattering as it sucks in at the waist which I love. I especially love the detail at the back, I'm never brave enough to wear anything with a low back but I feel this isn't too low and gives the dress a more dressy finish. I think this style of dress would be perfect for something like a works party as it isn't too over the top but it is a classic piece that you can dress up how you wish. I will definitely be wearing this over the Christmas period and at just £29.99 it wont be the end of the world if it only gets the one wear.
Secondly I picked up this black chiffon/lace playsuit. Again the pictures really don't do this justice as it looks so lovely and flattering on. I love how versatile this piece is as I can dress it up with heels and statement accessories for a night out or for a more casual look it would look cute with some knee high boots. Its my best friends birthday night out on Saturday and I'm planning on wearing this, I will definitely take some pictures and post this again next week just to show you how much better it looks on. Again this is from Zara and was just £29.99... AMAZING.
Lastly I've been in need of a new pair of black heels for some time and instantly fell in love with these! They are so simple but have little details on them which I think make them look a lot more expensive than they actually were at just £29.99. These will go perfect with both of the above outfits for an all black everything, winter chic look.
So once again Zara didn't let me down. I think its amazing how I got all of these lovely staple items for less than £90!! And now I have two classic back up plans for over Christmas just in case any wardrobe disasters occur.
