The Magic of a Little Black (Lace) Dress

A few weeks ago, Scott and I celebrated his birthday with some of our closest friends at The Church Key in Los Angeles. The entire evening was too, too, too fun - from dinner to dessert to watching my hubby blow out his candles.

As exciting as parties are, the lead up, anticipation, and preparation is always just as fun also! After everything was in order, invites went out, and all details were finalized, I finally found the AB-solute perfect party dress.

Every girl knows that a little black dress is a closet essential, and I personally can never wear too many. Once I found this number at the store, I knew it would make it's debut at Scott's birthday dinner.

Since the night would transition from a little celebration with Brooksie before he went to bed, followed by cocktails and dinner at the restaurant, I wanted to keep my makeup minimal. A touch of black eyeliner, essential mascara, and an extra emphasis on blush and the night's look was complete, topped off with my Schutz shoes!
