Accessorize Your LBD for Any Holiday Party w/ Style Expert Pamela Pekerman, ABC Houston

Every woman should own the perfect LBD, one that transitions from work to weekend with key accessories. Here's what I shared on the topic with ABC Houston's Patricia Lopez. A detailed shoppers guide follows.

PS Happy Holidays to you and your family! Enjoy the festivities with love, laughter, and style.

The Little Black Dress - look for versatility. The dress should not be too short, too tight or embellished with sparkles, in order to be an ideal fit for work. However, is should have some flair and fun details, so that it shines on the weekend. This Muse dress hits all the marks with the playful peter pan neckline, ruffled bottom and a semi formfitting silhouette. ($156 Muse)
