MCLV Style: Formal Wear Done Right

I adore getting dressed up whether it’s a pleated mini skirt for a date night or a Little Black Dress for a cocktail party. But when I get the rare opportunity to go full on black tie – I’m a happy happy girl.

After wearing the amazing gold sequined Badgley Mischka number a few weeks ago I decided to keep things a little more understated this time around and opted for this tiered black BCBG Max Azria number. But I kept the look from being too basic by pairing it w/ an orange & cheetah print clutch and a Betsey Johnson cape w/ a faux fur collar to keep me warm.

Are you a fan of black tie events? When was the last time that you wore formalwear?
