The Not so Classic LBD

Where ever the current fashion trend takes us, the classics are always there. But the classic look doesn't have to stay exactly the same, for updating just add attitude...

and opt for a non-classic version of the LBD + shoes



{From Left to Right: Temperley London Dress, Christian Louboutin Shoes, Christopher Kane Dress, Givenchy Shoes, Preen Dress, Fendi Boots - all from Net-a-porter.com}

Break the rules, the classic Little Black Dress doesn't have to be so "classic".

Love the use of the Zebra as a prop: so sweet.
Favourite outfit is probably photo 3, left hand side: Simple yet so beautiful and floaty - perfect for summer.
