In my younger days, I would own anything and everything that was short and skin tight. These days, I aim for more feminine silhouettes.

I upgraded my LBD to this tasteful above the knee length fit and flare dress. I adore the faux leather trim detail at the hem. It’s just the perfect LBD because of it’s versatility. You can pair this dress with flats and wear it to work or you can throw on some black pumps or an over-the-knee boot like I did for a day (or night) in town.
