No fabric makes me feel quite as glamorous as lace. It’s delicate, feminine and just a tad sexy. It’s the perfect way to add a little extra va-va-voom to your look.

And this dress has just the right amount of lace, in my opinion. I also have a bit of a soft spot for black lace. Not that cream isn’t nice, I just have a far easier time styling black. This dress also has a curve hugging silhouette…which isn’t normally a path I go down (fit & flare is my best friend), but it’s fun to change things up every once in a while! It was also a good excuse to break out my first ever shapewear tights (from Kushyfoot). I was surprised by how comfy they were!. And don’t worry, I have a whole post coming on my trip into the shapewear/Kushyfoot universe. (It needs its own post. I’ve found I have a lot to say on the subject, haha. Stay tuned!)

I really loved how the bow heels completed this look. You just can’t beat bows & lace! It’s currently a tie between these and my black and white heels in this post for my favorite pair of heels of all time.

I had a little fun playing with some black & white filters with these photos, too. I’m not really sure how I feel about black & white photos (especially for outfit photos). But, eh, I was feeling a little adventurous today! (Hence, the curve-hugging dress and new undergarments! Haha.)

    What a great look Lindsey, even more so in the black and white photos (you should have converted the full-body shot where you’re smiling). Sexy, sophisticated and elegant, what a combination.

    Every once in awhile you have to change up things, getting away from your signature style as well as your presentation. Five stars on both counts.

    Ohhh, I am loving this outfit, Lindsey! Those shoes are stunning.
    I agree about the black and white photos – I’m not sure how I feel about them when it comes to outfit photos. I worked with black and white for my photography thesis but it’s different for outfits because you want to see what colors the outfit is! But I like how you incorporated both.
    also – weren’t you freezing?? I took outfit photos outside the other day and wanted to cry it was so cold!

      Thank you so much, Lee! And I agree it’s fun to play with a little bit, but I wouldn’t want an entire outfit post to be black and white because you would never get a sense of the color of the outfit.
      Haha! And oh yes, I froze my tush off taking these photos! I think I was only outside for 10 minutes tops, but I couldn’t feel my fingers…I just never like the way my indoor photos turn out, though.

    Ohhh this outfit is something else! You are absolutely smoking hot!
    I agree, lace feels fancy and a little bit sexy. You wear it so well.
    And the heels! Gosh they are gorgeous! The little bow is perfect, and together with that dress this outfit is a total knock out!
    About the B&W photos – I think they are beautiful for portraits, but when it comes to outfit posts I want mine to be in colour.
    Lovely post – you’ve got an amazing figure, curve-hugging is beautiful on you!
    Much love,
    Mona

    You look amazing Lindsey! Oh so glam. The body hugging outfit looks great on you! My extra fancy fabric is tulle. Oh how I love it haha. Thes bow heels are the perfect finishing touch to this and just about any outfit! Always love some bows!! You and I are going to be shoe twins when you see my post tomorrow 😉

    Those shoes are so cute. I love bows! I like color for my outfit photos because I wear a lot of color. I think black and white works here because the colors in the outfit are very simple.

      Thank you, Aunt Wendy! And I would love the do more indoor shoots…but I don’t really have a great area for natural light…so, the photos have a yellowy tint to them, and the shutter speed needs to be so stinking slow, that no matter how still the camera is, my photos are grainy. So, I will probably continue to freeze my butt off, for now. Haha.
