Brunch with Ladies-Casual Cozy Cool:

We paired the LBD (theBB Dakota "Harriet" Dress, $92) with a chunky cardigan sweater to tone it and make for a casual weekend brunch with your favorite lady friends.Add the metallic booties, tonal leather clutch with a mink fur pom pom and a cherry print cashmere scarf to tie in all the color ways.

Work Look-Sassy Business Casual

For a business look, we layered a fitted oxford button down under the sheath for coverage. Add a pop of color with the flats, and finish the look with an interesting printed leather tote.

Casino Night Out-Glitz Glam

We love mixing fabrics!The metallic tweed goes great with the matte leather dress. Throw in a splash of color with the patent fuchsia clutch and scaled shiny gold heels for a high roller look.

Afternoon in the Short North-Cool and Casual

Styling a cozy cashmere turtleneck over the LBD and topping with a wool ball cap, rabbit texting gloves and comfortable stacked heel bootie-this lady is ready for a day of shopping in the Short North.

Cocktail Party-Sassy Chic

We styled the dress as a pencil skirt with a silk blouse tied at the waist. Finished off the look with cobalt pony hair pumps and a chain handled python print. She is ready to party!
