A Perfect Little Black Dress for $14!

Hey pretties!  If you saw my post last Friday, you know that I had to move up the post I had scheduled for today because the links were starting to sell out.  So I went against all things I stand for and posted about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale two days in a row so I could share A Week of Fall Outfits from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before everything sold out.

I think that’s an important enough reason, don’t you?  🙂

This is always one of my most popular posts of the year.  You may not even be thinking about fall outfits yet, but hop over and pin the post so that you have it handy when you are!

Ok, let’s take a break from all of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale madness today and switch gears a little bit to a recent purchase that I’m loving – this tie waist black dress.

It was a last minute purchase right before my parents’ 50th anniversary party a few weeks ago.  I wasn’t feeling any of my other dresses so I ran out to Target and grabbed it without even trying it on.  I paid $19.99 for it but it’s now on clearance for just $13.98!

Here’s a flat lay of the outfit that I wore to my parents’ anniversary party because I was rushing out the door and forgot to take a selfie on the night of it.


Let’s stop and talk about these sandals for a minute before we press on – I got mine in a Stitch Fix but just discovered them on sale for 50% off here.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I get every time I wear these shoes. Because of the block heel, they’re really comfortable and a lot more versatile than you might think.

Today’s outfit is how I paired it up for Friday night church.  This little dress is great for so many things, including putting it on with a pair of flip flops and never leaving the house!  It’s super comfy and versatile, which I love, love, love. Pair it with heels for a night out or throw it on with a long cardigan and gold sandals like I did for church.

Lately I’ve been having a bit of a color crush on black and olive.  Here’s another outfit I posted last week on Instagram with this color combo.
