TxSCC Style File pt. 2 | 03.22.11

Don’t you love when you are wearing something so simple, yet you feel like a million bucks? That is how I felt in this dress. I didn’t need any necklaces, bracelets, handbags or rings. I just wore the dress and the shoes and it was perfect. I wore this outfit to the dress up party on Saturday night during the conference. It was the right amount of fun and feminine. Isn’t the collar amazing? I love the back of the dress too.

This is my new favorite LBD. Do you have a favorite little black dress?

    I don’t know that I’ve ever commented your blog before (though I read almost every day) but this outfit is just too perfect. That dress fits you so well and I love that you kept it so simple. I went to the modcloth website and even the tights they show a girl wearing with it are too much. Two thumbs way up for this outfit!

    ps-you’ve got such a great body for being a new momma!

  44. Wow! This outfit is stunning! I love how simple it is. The dress and wedges are amazing, I want them both!! You look beautiful.

    Ever since I read your post last week about all of the unnecessary and nasty comments that you have received lately, I haven’t been able to get that off my mind. I have no idea why, I have never met you… I learned once from a college professor some words I try to live my life by.

    If this situation is going to matter in 10 years, then I will give it all my effort and attention. For example: if these ugly comments or a silly disagreement with my husband is going to matter at that distant point in my life, I will argue until I am blue in the face… However, if this is not one of those situations that are going to matter at that time, it is not worth my time or energy that I could be applying elsewhere.

    I have learned that no matter what there is ALWAYS going to be someone somewhere that doesn”t believe the same as you or doesn’t have the same interests as you. And there are also those people who have nothing better to do than try and hurt others by the selfish comments they make.

    But at the same time, in 10 years I strongly believe that when you look back at those comments, the time and energy that you spent thinking about those hurtful things will hurt you even more because that is energy that you spent away from your husband or Rowan, or having time for yourself and your art.

    Don’t let ridiculous comments get you down. Realize the devil is always around the corner and strives on doing just that!!! Keep your head up and enjoy the amazing life you have!!!

    I love this LBD by the way, I don’t think you have ever looked better… Ashley

    You look fabulous!!! Love this dress, and the wedges… Ah, I want those shoes so bad!!!

  63. Know what is awesome? These shoes!!

  64. So, I figure you could use another “OMG – you look amazing” post bc who doesn’t love to hear compliments, and because it’s true! I LOVE that dress, so classic, and you look great in it! I’m also gushing over the shoes.

    Also – I’m a size 9, so if you want to do that shoe swap – email me…just kidding (only if you want me to be) 😉

  65. I was talking about how much I love fashion bloggers, and asked my readers for suggestions – you came up! And it’s no wonder – you’re adorable! Loving those yellow shoes. Get it girl.

  66. You are absolutely right – that dress is beautiful enough to not need any necklaces, rings, or bracelets to glam it up. And those shoes…WOW! You look stunning! 🙂

  67. I agree that the dress is adorable, but those shoes definitely won my heart. SO PERFECT.

  68. look out sexay mama comin thru! your legs look a mile long! love it

  69. love, love, LOVE!!!

    :O I’ve been eyeing those wedges on modcloth! they look so cute.

  71. I *do* have a favorite little black dress; we go everywhere together, her and I. Not quite as exotic as your gal, but so comfy. Here she is: http://ow.ly/4paay Loved my time at TxSCC, as well.

  72. This outfit is absolutely perfect, Jen! I’ve wanted those wedges for so long! Eeee! And is Rowan really yours? I’m starting to doubt.. no real woman could have a body like this so soon after birth. You’re stunning. 😉

  73. I love this dress! It’s so feminine! The yellow wedges are amazing, I wantttt.
