This body con LBD is chic and professional, yet still shows off your curves, so it's perfect for work -- and after work -- engagements. It's simple but still has some surprise design elements, like the higher neck, cleavage cutout and little flutter sleeves.
Dress: Bailey 44 Bewitched Cutout Body Con Dress
Unfortunately, both the dress and shoes are no longer available. But you can still shop for a little black dress on the Bailey 44 website, or browse the brand's full collection on websites like Bloomingdale's.
What I love most about an LBD, aside from making you look slim and fabulous, is that they tend not to go out of style. An LBD is a great investment piece, one you can definitely plan to wear for years to come.
Bailey 44 is not actually an expensive brand, though. Most dresses retail for around $200, and go for much less on sale.
Shoes: Prada Patent Leather Cap-Toe Pumps in Nude and Black
Chapin bought me these pumps last Christmas, and they are ideal for work, going with just about everything. Prada pieces tend to be so classic -- another great investment piece. What's on your wish list this Christmas? Leave a comment and let me know!
