One Lanvin LBD, Many Ways

I finally got to wear my new Lanvin LBD that has been sitting in my closet for more than two months now. Tonight was the perfect occasion to wear it. We went out for a lovely dinner to officially celebrate our new place and the sale of our old one.

I couldn't decide how to wear it so I took pictures of all 4 ways.

Here's a tighter shot to show a close-up of my DIY zipper necklace.
I looped it around my dress' strap to create an interesting neckline.

Up next: my review of Restaurant Alma where the chef/owner, Alex Roberts was recently awarded the James Beard Best Chef in the Midwest for 2010!


  1. Oh, G. You look so fab! The DIY necklace is the perfect ¨icing¨ to the perfect LBD. :) I´d prefer the 1st look too kasi I love bling and it´s glittery. ;)

    So you´ve just bought a new house? We too have just bought a new flat. I´m so excited how you´re going to decorate your new ¨digs¨ because I´m still at a loss with mine. hahaha!

    Can´t wait for the restaurant review and see food photos. Yummy!

    ¡Un abrazo!

  2. You look gorgeous, and the necklace is BEAUTIFUL!

  3. Dear Grace, First I MUST say that this black Iconic-like finery ideally suits your dark-haired mane . . . AND that I really like your final option's "Radical CHIC" vibrancy !!!
    J'espère que tu vas Bien.

    à Bientôt, Antoine

  4. Oh Grace, you look so lovely on the dress and yes so chic and elegant...a perfect dress for the night...

    take care,
