After sharing the killer gold tank dress from San Francisco-based Style Lend that I took on my recent trip to London, I wanted to show you one of the fun nighttime looks that I took on the road with me.

This sequin-embellished cocktail number from French Connection is everything you need in a Little Black Dress. It’s fun & flirty, with a little something extra that makes it stand out in a sea of black.

When you’re wearing a bold, embellished piece you don’t want to overdo the accessories – You keep them minimal and let the dress do the talking. Here I went with a killer pair of strappy black heels and a versatile gold clutch.

MCLV Style: IFBCON Day One

I’ve been beyond excited for this trip to New York City for weeks – Seeing my best friend, attending IFBCON, and spending time in NYC which one of my top three favorite cities.

IFBCON was everything that I was hoping it would be – A fun, fashionable, engaging event that left me inspired and motivated, and absolutely determined to move to New York! I met some lovely ladies who I’m looking forward to staying in touch with and I’m looking forward to sharing their blogs with you in the future.

With my nervous excitement running the show I decided that I couldn’t go wrong with a simple black and white look with some fun silver embellishments and a killer pop of color. I love the idea of leather shorts but muggy NYC is not the time to try them out so I went with these faux leather trimmed shorts paired with an embellished white Zara top and a metallic tweed open blazer.

Stay tuned for some great style shots of the amazing fashion bloggers that I met at the conference this week – The looks that they put together were outstanding and the styles totally diverse.

Do you have a go-to style or a specific color combination that you like to pair together when you want to look great? Do you prefer to air on the side of overdressed or under-dressed?
