How To Wear a LBD: A Fresh Take

Summer is a time for celebrations!  In the Hamptons, this generally means a party at a friend's home or a lobster dinner at the beach . But this was a very special event, and I wore a beaded maxi, my version of a LBD. I added depth and detail with oodles of fringe; cocktail attire with a little bit of attitude!  I hope you are enjoying your summer celebrations!

White Lace Maxi in the Courtyard

THE MAXI DRESS  this season is a versatile staple as well as a fashion statement . Whether in lace, as mine is, as featured, or in a tribal print, floral, or stripe, let this GO ANYWHERE dress- let you do just that!

Add a kimono for a cool second layer, or a hooded cardi for the beach! Style with flip flops, espradrilles, or cool booties for a bit of urban edge.
