Hello Black Friday! Welcome to round two of three on how to update your little black dress! The LBD I chose for this week is definitely a departure from the norm. As you can see above, this one comes with pockets, a peter pan collar, and its own matching cape that snaps on and off at the collar. Designed by Monica Rose for Lovers and Friends in LA.
I have a bit of an affinity for modern takes on classic designs. By adding the cape, Monica also adds unexpected drama, sophistication, and functionality to this otherwise simple black dress. I tied the look together with a gorgeous leopard clutch by Clare V, stunning wraparound sandals and a perfectly imperfect french twist.
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
