So I decided to create three looks out of one dress. 1) Red Carpet Ready, 2) Out on the Town, and 3) Business Dinner Chic.
Red Carpet Ready
My first instinct was to put together an elegant look. I love a black dress because you can pair it with your favorite pumps and you instantly look simple and elegant. Every woman needs a LBD and a good pair of go-to pumps. I decided to pair this dress with my favorite nude pumps and my very flashy, but regal BCBG chandelier earrings. The nude pump plays off of the gold in the earring and offers a little color variation. This look is perfect for an award ceremony, banquet, or upcoming holiday party.
Out on the Town
The second look I came up with is more of an edgy look, giving downtown vibes. I have been wanting to try the pants under a dress look, so this was the perfect opportunity. The asymmetrical hem can accommodates this look quite well. So because of my love for leather I decided to go with a faux leather pant under this dress to add dimension and texture. I also went with leather boots, to create a seamless effect. The turban and gold jewelry scream personal style. As you can see the same dress is now part of a “look” that’s perfect for a night out with the girls or your beau, Boaz or whatever you fancy calling him.
Business Dinner Chic
My last look is accomplished by the simple addition of a blazer. It’s the simplest way to give a dress new life. My closet is full of blazers because I grab one whenever I want to look a bit polished. Because I wanted to downplay the dress I added a black sandal. This is a great look for when you want to mean business, but still be a lady.
The next time you’re thinking that you have nothing to wear, think again.
So the next time you’re thinking that you have nothing to wear, think again. Pull out your little black dress and put a spin on it. Anyone can accomplish one or all of these looks.
Mary Mary recently appeared on The Arsenio Hall show where Tina Campbell, one half of the gospel music singing duo, dished about being ashamed of some of her behavior.
Campbell, 39, is married to gospel drummer Teddy Campbell, also 39, who has also worked as the percussionist for “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. On her WE tv reality television series “Mary Mary” Tina lets fans know that she is working on rebuilding her relationship after finding out about her husband’s infidelities.
After first exposing the issues within her marriage in an EBONY magazine interview last year, Tina recently told talk show host Arsenio Hall that she was ashamed of how she acted after being hurt by the situation and coming out with it publicly.
“During the process, yes I did. I was like ‘It’s embarrassing, it’s shameful.’ I’m doing a bunch of stuff thats ungospel,” she said on “The Arsenio Hall Show.” “I wasn’t nice, I wasn’t nothing to be played with when it was going on. I’m just saying it was really bad for everybody that was around me.”
Still, Tina explained why she acted in a way that she is not proud of.
“I was like, ‘I’m hurting, I’mma hurt the world, that’s how it’s going down’. You don’t really want to do that while the cameras are rolling, it helps to get behind bars,” she admitted. “I was trying to figure out how do I manage this in the process.”
The singer revealed why she felt the need to share such an emotional and personal part of her life with countless fans.
“Maybe someone could heal by watching me heal. I kinda made (that decision) in the spur of the moment,” she admitted on the late night talk show. “I didn’t know how challenging the process of healing was going to be, but I made the decision in the spur of the moment.”
