A little black dress at the Imperial Hotel


dress: Sheinside; heels: Steve Madden; turtleneck: Uniqlo;
clutch: Michael Kors; ring: Good After Nine
watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs









Sometimes, even a girl like me enjoys getting dolled-up in a little black dress. Sheinside was kind enough to send me a LBD of my choice from my wishlist a little while back, and here it is. I thought this little dress would look better in a more refined setting, and the Imperial Hotel in Hibiya was the ideal location. Beautiful chandeliers, lush red carpeting, and a huge bouquet of red roses right upon entrance, if you can even call it a bouquet (I don't even know what to call it). Needless to say, the hotel was gorgeous.

Since it was much too cold to wear it bare, I layered a basic black turtleneck underneath. I finally got a chance to wear my pearl ring from Good After Nine - how pretty does it look underneath the lights! Dressing up can be so fun sometimes... yes, I am such a girl :)


For more cute dresses for day or evening, check out Sheinside.com (my flare dress was only $26.00!)

Sheinsideさんから頂いた黒いワンピースでドレスアップしました。東京はさすがに寒いので、無地の黒いタートルニットをインしてコーディネートしました。ちょっとお洒落感を演出したく、今回は帝国ホテルで撮影をすることにしました。本当にうっとりするくらい素敵なホテル!ロビーのセンターに飾られていた赤いバラのブーケがとても綺麗でした。たまにはこういうところに来るのもいいですね!

  7. Why do you always look so fabulously chic? I love how you can throw on a LBD and add your pearls in one look and then the next look wear your tennis shoes and still make it all look fabulous:)
