There’s Always A Reason To Celebrate | Black Layered Sleeve Dress

I’m such a lover of colors that its very rare for me to wear all black but in order for me to do so, each piece must have a level of intricacy infused into it. I spent the day running around handling last minute things then went to a day party celebrating JDot‘s birthday.

When I initially laid my eyes on this dress, I knew I had to have it. The sleeves were calling my name so I knew if I walked out of the store without it, I would only end up wanting it even more.

Some may layer by stacking jackets and sweaters, but my version of layering involves mesh, lace and solid woven sleeves.

I didn’t notice the amount of detailing the dress had until I wore it, therefore making it one of my favorite black dresses.

Sticking with the updo that I originally created for the masquerade, I kept my makeup simple with the Fenty Stunna Lip Paint.

There’s always so much to celebrate and as I am forever grateful for being blessed with the gift of life, I am always appreciative for the positive people God placed around me.

It’s always easier to run around and party with a crossbody so I threw on my favorite bag and I also accessorized with my favorite black thigh high boots. Because I haven’t put it to much use since wearing it during fashion week 4 seasons ago, it’s only right that I whip them out again, with the silver zippers complimenting the grey necklace and earrings.



Do you wear black dresses during the holidays?
