    Fashion Style Tip: Lady in black

    April 7th, 2011

    I don’t know how you feel about this weird weather outside at least in New York but this black off-the-shoulder dress with its exposed tanks would be perfect to wear for now. Don’t you think? Wear it with lace-up ankle boots and a classic bag for a day-to-night dressing. Combine it with a catchy bracelet and your outfit is a chic contemporary way to work an LBD.
