A little black dress is an item no woman can ever have too many of. When I saw this black lace dress at Nordstrom a few months back, it was love at first sight. It was so delicate and feminine and the perfect blank canvas to style. I have so many black pieces in my closet, but I always justify buying them because you know they’re never going out of style.

Today’s post is another in collaboration with Cincinnati jeweler Richter & Phillips. You can see my other posts here and here. This is one of the dressier looks I styled, which I absolutely love. Getting dressed up is always a lot of fun for me, and I knew I wanted some eye-catching jewels to pop against the black dress.

The selection at Richter & Phillips is incredible and they have every type of piece you can imagine. My birthstone is emerald, and it’s always been my favorite gemstone. I was in heaven when I went to their downtown store and got to see what a large emerald offering they have. The emerald ring I’m wearing below was one of my favorite pieces I picked out. You know when you lay eyes on something and it just feels right? That’s how I felt with this ring!

This silver vintage clutch is another reason I love this look so much. It belonged to my grandma and thought it was the perfect dressy clutch to top off the outfit. It’s wrapped in a glittery material that’s muted but still sparkly. I love incorporating her old pieces into my daily outfits and am always still amazed at her impeccable taste in fashion!
