What would make your Galentine's better than a free bottle of Prosecco to share with your best friends?
As we love seeing our customers wearing our beautiful dresses we are now hosting a weekly #fizzfridays ! We will be giving a bottle of Prosecco away every week to one lucky customer courtesy of naked wines *. All you have to do is snap yourself in a dress from our store and post it on instagram under the hashtag #MyLBDStory . This could also mean that your photo may be featured on our Hall of Fame, sitting pretty on our store's homepage.
This could be a photo of you and your mum at your sister's wedding, simply shopping on the weekend or celebrating Galentine's with your girls! Wherever you are, we want to see how you are styling our dresses. Make sure you are following us on Instagram. If you require some style inspiration, have a read through this Galentine's style guide.

The classic style consists of slick silhouettes, timeless wardrobe staples and favours personal style over fad trends. Think Victoria Beckham and Audrey Hepburn.
We love the Club L London Black Strappy Skater Dress and think it would work wonderfully for the classic fashion lover. A little black dress is the perfect wardrobe essential for it's versatility and ageless person. To elevate the sophistication, we recommend the Johnny Loves Rosie Mono Clutch Bag in Black. It's versatility makes this the ideal investment for the classic woman. For a timeless beauty look to match the LBD, apply the Daniel Sandler Luxury Lip Gloss in Skinny Dip for a glossy lip look. To add depth to the simplicity of this look, we think the Daniel Sandler Instant Tan Bronzing Powder is a great option. This product adds a velvetty smooth and demi-matte bronzed finish that suits all complexions.
The romantic exudes femininity with her fashion sense. Lace, frills and soft colours make up her wardrobe.
If you are a hopeless romantic, then we think the Little Mistress Girls on Film Frill Dress in White may fit your style preferences. The tiered lace detailing adds movement to the silhouette. Accompanied with fluted sleeves and crochet lace inserts to add the perfect level of elegance.
To elevate the romanticism, we think the Code Beautiful SSL Lip Liner is your best option. Creating fuller, plump lips, the award-winning self sharpening pencil creates beuaitful, alluring lips. For a playful, girlish touch accessories with the Johnny Loves Rosie Blush Rose Print Crossbody Bag. The signature rose print adds a pop of fun and colour to your look. Hence it makes a great wardrobe staple! If you find yourself lusting over the bag, then we suggest taking a sneak peak at this perfectly matching Sarvin Gwyneth Embroidered Cut Out Bandeau Midi Dress in Ivory.
Contrasting with the romantic look, is the flirtatious fashionista. Bolder colours and even bolder choices are what this style savvy woman is all about. She upscales the details of the romantic and creates more daring outfits. All of which, still exude femininity but without as much softness.
If you fall into this category, then we have a great option for your Galentine's Day. Heat up the room with our Goddiva Wine Scallop Edge Mini Dress. Featuring a flattering V neckline and spaghetti straps, this dress hits just the right balance of flirtatious and seductive. To feel even more fabulous, we think the Daniel Sandler Luxury Matte Lipstick in Red Carpet is a great colour match. Accessories with the La Bante Red Vegan Allegro Clutch Bag to add depth to the look by contrasting textures whilst keeping in the same colour group.
At Little Black Dress, we know from first hand experience, that a night out with the ladies usually requires refreshing your make-up. Therefore, we think the CODE Beautiful VLM Mini Mascara could be your best beauty buy. Giving you that false lash look and adding voluminous length. This mascara is the perfect size to carry around in your clutch without taking up too much room.
The Boss Lady
The boss lady is all about business. Serious in her endeavours and with a closet to match, she exudes strength, confidence and power. Her outfits typically look more masculine with straight angular lines and silhouettes. This includes suits, fitted dresses, blazers and boat necked tops.
If you are a total boss lady, our stylists at Little Black Dress highly recommend The Club L London White Wrap Over Blazer Asym Dress. We champion women who who dream big and work hard to achieve their goals. This is exactly what a blazer dress embodies. The gold button detailing contrasts beautifully with the clean, white colour of the dress. The mini cut and long sleeves create a refined balance. As a result, this will leave any lucky lady wearing it, feeling utterly empowered.
