It is not fresh news in fashion that every girl should have the perfect Little Black Dress in her closet. They are versatile, acceptable in any occasion and dress code, and always in season. In Fall you can add a tan leather jacket and booties, in Winter a fur coat and red heels, in Spring an open sweater and flats, and in Summer a denim jacket and sandals or espadrilles.

One dress, four seasons, and endless options. 

I wore this LBD to a week day lunch date with one of my girlfriends recently. It was a ladies only lunch so Raj stayed home with D, but as soon as lunch was over I had to swing home and pick him up to run errands and do some shopping for the rest of the day. I had worn this dress out for a bachelorette party recently and it is honestly one of the most comfortable dresses I have ever owned. The stretchy material makes it so easy to move around in and the length hits me right below the knee so I don't have to worry about it flying up or lifting when I bend. I wanted to get more use out of this dress than just for that one night so I threw it on with my favorite Chanel espadrilles and added the denim jacket for a touch of chic. I love that this look was appropriate enough to wear out to lunch but comfortable and practical enough to run around town with a 7 month old. 

I have recently found this fabulous new company, Rocksbox, where you can pay a monthly membership fee ($19 per month) and get unlimited pieces of designer jewelry to rent, how awesome is that?! I am the kind of person that spends most of my shopping money on clothes and shoes and I am so terrible at getting myself to splurge on nice designer jewelry. I tend to be pretty cheap when it comes to buying them just because I feel like I don't wear it enough, but then I always find myself being super frustrated when getting ready and not having enough accessory options; Rocksbox has been the perfect solution to that. They carry the best of jewelry designers like Gorjana, House of Harlow 1960 and many more that I always drool over walking out of Nordstrom but never let myself purchase. 

I love Rocksbox and I hope you will too, which is why I am so ecstatic to share with all you that they are offering an exclusive 1 month free membership to all of my amazing readers! Just go to their website www.rocksbox.com and enter code southcoastmovementxoxo to redeem your free month.
