I have been spending a lot of time roaming the new River Oaks District. I love all the shops, restaurants and decor. Well, I thought my little black dress should visit there too! My first stop was at Baanou, where I said to them, "Let's dress up my LBD!" 

The first thing I noticed was this elegant lace dress coat by Kate Kills Pretty, a line founded by former Houstonian Aries Milan. I love how the length of this coat compliments the shorter black dress. This piece could also be worn with several other looks in your closet.

The layers on this jacket are feminine and detailed. There are hook closures, so it can be worn open or buttoned and tied with the black sash.

 Some of my favorite details of this dress coat are the bell sleeves and flirty bustle.

This double-layer black beaded necklace from Baanou and layered pearls add a bit of elegance. I also added a cute netted fascinator headband to give a little vintage feel.
