Week 11: LBD, statement accessories & a fake

It’s Week 11 of the BusiChic Little Black Dress (LBD) Project where I’m wearing a LBD to work once a week for the whole year to share 52 different ways of styling this staple for the office. This week, I’m working in ethnic accessories, a cardigan and a faux-fur vest.

It’s early Autumn here in the Southern Hemisphere where the days may be warm but we sure feel the cold when the sun sets!

I started off a warm day wearing my LBD with some statement accessories that I felt lent an ethnic twist: a necklace I bought on a trip to Shanghai and a cuff gifted to me by The Iconic who held a lovely high tea for bloggers during LMFF:

It was a little chilly in the office so I added a cardigan…

Statement accessories and a cardigan

After work it was time to catch up with friends for a drink. We were at an outdoor venue and I soon found that my cardigan wasn’t enough. So it was lucky that my friend Sam (and co-coincidently the designer of my LBD) was so warm in her own ensemble that she lent me the faux-fur vest she’d brought with her but wasn’t using…

LBD layered up with faux-fur, cardigan and the statement accessories.

So there you have it, BusiChic: the transformation of a LBD over the seasons that we tend to have in one day! What do you think of my styling? Have you worn a LBD to work recently? How did you style it?

That’s 11 styles down and 41 more to go! See all the styles to date here < also includes LBDs being worn by other BusiChics πŸ˜‰
