Atypical LBD

dress (French Connection, Morton James, Lexington KY available ONLINE HERE), heels (Kate Spade see similar HERE and HERE), clutch (ASOS sold out, see similar lucite HERE ON SALE), rings (Lagos, Anna Beck)

We all have them in our closets.  They're a staple that can be thrown on if in a bind.  But do we have that one LBD that may not blend with the rest, but rather stand out just the right amount in a crowd?  Thanks to this French Connection number, we do now.  
I wore this Lovely to a little soiree several months ago and while she's definitely form fitting, I felt ridiculously comfy and not overt thanks to the jet black color, length, neckline, and long sleeves.  The key for me when going to an event is I have to strike the right balance of unique but not-trying-too-hard---ain't all that easy, but I think this LBD succeeded.  
Needing to up your LBD ante?  Check out some of these special little gems below (especially this Ruffled Number--how fun is she).  Remember the beauty of an LBD is it needs to be timeless and able to be worn to a number of occasions.  Be it the pleating, ruffles, asymmetry, pattern or shape, these LBD's will prove to be anything but ordinary.  
PS--apologies for all the dang hair fiddling..just had a fresh cut when these were snapped and the bangs were misbehaving!  Y'all enjoy your week--make it a good one!
