Ways to Wear it: Little Black Dress

     I'm all about getting the bang for your buck and the best way to do that in your closet is to figure out how to wear your clothes many different ways. In this blog I will be showing you how to create five different looks using this $12 Black dress I got from H&M. I'll be wearing the same dress with different accessories, jackets and shoes to tell a different story with each outfit. Since it is late September I will be showing you five different fall looks with this long sleeve body con dress but you can do this with in any season.
    If you are not comfortable with wearing such a form fitting dress you can also create these looks with skater or flare dresses. You could even check out Pintrest and see all of the different ways you can wear your summer maxi dresses in the fall. Of course I used Pintrest to gain inspiration for my looks. If you want to take a look at my Pin-spirations for these looks and get more ideas you can check out the Little Black Dress board I created on the Little Things B Loves Pintrest Page.

Fall Look Book

     There are a lot of great fashion trends for this season and I have picked a few of my favorites to showcase. Some of these pieces are new, I did a lot of shopping during Labor Day weekend (a time for amazing fall sales), but others are items I previously wore in the summer and transitioned to fall or were bought last season.

     Most of the time that I am dressed in more than pajamas I am at work so when I am shopping I am very conscious about the versatility and office friendliness of the things that I buy. The dress code in my office is mostly casual- to business casual so I don't have a very severe split in my wardrobe when it comes to the clothes I wear in my personal life and the clothes that I wear in the office. Most of the looks in this look book will be casual but work appropriate and of course they will always have room to be dressed up or down depending on how you feel.

So without further adieu here are my 5 Looks:

Ways To Wear It: The Fall Transition

Fall is upon us! Chicago did not have a summer full of sweltering heat and humidity as per usual so it never quiet seemed that far off to me but either way as we approach mid September the weather is slowly changing and your wardrobe should be as well. At this time of the year we can reach 80 by day but only the upper 60's in the early morning and late night, which means it's time to break out our flats and light jackets. In this blog I will be showing you how I transition some of my summer pieces into early fall knockouts! 
I'll also be showing you quite a few of my new fall pieces that I pick up during last week's labor day sales at various stores so be on the lookout for my great deals!

Battle of the lip Crayons

       In case you didn't know lip crayons are all the rage and have been for quite some time. Nearly every makeup line has created their own version, so it won't be hard to find one that suits your lip needs, be that matte color, moisture, full coverage or lip tint. I only have a couple (so far) from varying brands & prices. Here's my collection and how I rank each one:
