Date Night :: Little Black Dress & Minimalist Accessories

Happy Friday, dear friends! It is almost a universal (unspoken) rule that Friday nights are reserved for a certain romantic dates, the kind that you go on with someone of whom you want to impress into a more serious relationship; or with someone you are in a serious relationship with. For married old couples like yours truly and hubs, Friday night is pizza & home movie night. ;D

When it is a Friday night date, I take it very seriously! Kidding, but it never hurts to dress up for such occasion even you feel like you don’t need to impress the guy any more. What I opted for today was LBD, little black dress. It was an old Rick Owen design from a few years ago, a chiffon Mountain dress that is semi-transparent (seen last here as a blouse).PetiteFlowerPresents-silk-mountain-dressPetiteFlowerPresents-RO-in-action

I like how airy and accommodating it is, perfect for a hot summer night but I don’t want to step out in it as is and show the world my undedies. ;D The solution is pretty simple, lined it! I wore a lightweight stretchy bodycon one that be worn alone, the hem is folded above knee. There will be a following post later of the same dress but a daytime look, so stay tuned!PetiteFlowerPresents-black-chiffon-dressPetiteFlowerPresents-saint-laurent-jane-sandalsSince the dress is pretty simple and the weather is hot, I paired it with accessories that are contemporary and minimal in design but with some fun twists, such as python skin color blocking sandals, a little furry pouch (last worn cross-body style here), and double-stone stud earrings. The earring are not real diamonds however they have great luster regardless, a very economical way to dress up a look but day-time appropriate as well.

A word about these simple ankle-strap sandals, they are the sexiest summer high heels one can have! You don’t want to run a marathon in them but if you want a little zest in your outfit, put on a pair! There are many brands offer this style now, mine is from Saint Laurent, you can find a great collection of colors and fabrics from Stuart Weitzman.PetiteFlowerPresents-fendi-monster-mini

    You’re the most beautiful date — your husband is a lucky man! Such a pretty dress. I have an old Carven dress that’s similiar… you’ve inspired me to pull it out of my closet. Gorgeous, as always!
