Date Night














dress: le tote // shoes: valentino (available here) // necklace and bag: stella & dot
photos by the amazing molly stillman

Hello friends, let me start by saying there are several rare things going on here......tonight the hubs and I have a date night at our favorite Italian restaurant (which happens every couple of months) also I'm wearing a little black dress. I know I'm one of the only people in the world that is not a big fan of the LBD but I'll be honest.... I usually find them boring. However, the laser cut detail on this one just spoke to me (and the fit spoke to the part of me that actually wanted to look attractive to my husband instead of my usual husband repelling ensembles). Paired with my rockstuds and a statement necklace and I'm all set for date night. PS Molly and I totally snuck onto private property to snag these pics.....rebels without a cause :) By the way are we loving the site design?!!!!!!!

  15. Your site is looking fierce but not as fierce as YOU. All about these laser cut deets. And love the look with a flat, very unexpected yet CHIC.

  16. At first, I thought you were a member of the Royal Family and your husband was taking you on a date night to a castle (pictured in the background). You look sexy!! I’m not a fan of little black dresses either, but I LOVE the cutout details!!

  18. I'm not a fan of the LBD either!
    I do have a few but they rarely ever get worn.

    I'm in love with this dress though! Especially paired with red lips.
    I really need to be more daring in lip colors...

    P.S. I love that you guys were rebels because this location is AMAZING!!!

    Hope you had a fantastic date night!

  30. Love that dress! I'm the same as you, never really felt the love for the LBD - but over the last few months I've suddenly acquired a small collection of them! It's the details that make the difference :)

  40. Your date had to be very intrigued by this outfit, you took so hot. Far from repelling indeed.;) I like the lase cutouts too!

  41. I love your take on the LBD, but tell me more about that interesting ruin in the background? It looks like you've gone on a glamourous exploration and stumbled across an archeological site. Hope date night went well, I bet the hubs couldn't take his eyes off you!

  42. Such a unique LBD! When I saw your photo on instagram last week, I was like OH YES, she totally is doing her own thing with the LBD and I love it!!! Especially love how you're wearing the rockstud flats with it. And so funny (and true, I would do the same) to dress in something our husbands would love for date night...we do dress in things they are embarrassed of 99% of the time. hehehe!

  45. HOT MAMA!!! I know what you mean though...sometimes the idea of the LBD bores me, but I definitely love wearing them whenever I do. I'm especially a fan of the back and the necklace makes the perfect addition!
