You can never go wrong with a little black dress. I love having a few little black dresses on hand for those occasions when I just do not know what to wear! They also come in handy when I want my outfit to be all about one or more of my accessories!

I wore this casual little black dress out to dinner with my family. It seemed warm outside when I put the dress on and took a few photos, but as soon as the sun went down, I kept my coat on! In the future, I will plan to wear this little black dress on warmer days, during the day, or on occasions when I will be inside. At dinner we sat outside on the patio because my daughter didn’t like the noise level inside the restaurant. Brrr!

Since I consider myself an accessories girl, I chose to wear this little black dress in order to accentuate both my Dualitas ring, and my favorite blue handbag! I love blue and green together, so highlighting both pieces at the same time just worked for my personal taste.

This Dualitas ring is really comfortable, and it looks amazing with casual denim outfits, through to cocktail attire. I love versatile jewelry, it is what I reach for the most in my jewelry box! If you are not familiar with Dualitas, the collection is designed right here in the San Francisco Bay Area; in Palo Alto! To read my Dualitas feature and learn more, please click here.

I would also like to give a shout out to these boots! I have been wearing my Tory Burch boots several times per week. The heel is high enough to look fabulous, yet just below that 4″ point which can be uncomfortable. As a result, these boots are VERY comfortable! I love wearing them with jeans, skirts, and dresses! They are currently on sale, so if you are looking for a pair of fabulous black boots with some stretch (or give) in the shaft (the part which covers your calf), then these boots are for you! They fit perfectly, keep my calves warm,  and I can walk for miles. Love that!

What makes you reach for a little black dress?

I love learning about new designers in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are such a culturally diverse, and politically complicated, section of the Earth; which I believe sparks incredible creativity when it comes to art, fashion, tech, and more! So when I learned about Dualitas jewelry, I was intrigued.

Dualitas is an amazing, emerging designer jewelry collection designed right here in the Bay Area, in Palo Alto. The jewelry has been designed for more than just fashion and art; it has been designed with each stone’s metaphysical properties, and their positive effects on the wearer, in mind. The result is amazing!

All of the pieces Dualitas has designed, are not only unique in design, many of them are designed so that the stones actually touche the wearer’s skin; thus allowing the positive metaphysical properties of the stone to transfer to the skin. Love that!

I was taken aback when I saw the beauty of each piece at Dualitas. The geometric designs are modern, and the choice of metals are fashion-forward. The stones are precious or semi-precious; and their natural  beauty shines through on each piece.

Many of the pieces offer cutting edge, modern styling, while some of the diamond pieces offer vintage, art deco styling which is breathtaking. My Dualitas wish list is a mile long!

If you are looking for a fine jewelry gift this holiday season, or an upscale fashion piece, then  Dualitas is the place to go! They have so many fabulous pieces which are perfect gifts for that very special someone on your list, or for yourself!

You can check out Dualitas collection online at Dualitas.com or pop into their Palo Alto store located at Town & Country Village, 855 El Camino Real, ste. 16.
