Hi Friends! Happy Sunday. How is your weekend going? Are you watching the Oscars? I am watching and loving all of the dresses, especially Michelle Williams with the plunging neckline. What did you think of Dakota Johnson in Gucci?? Octavia Spencer looked stunning in Marchesa, Emma Stone wowed me in Givenchy Haute Couture and Matt Damon’s wife, Luciana Barroso, was a show stopper in quicksilver satin with a revealing bodice.
Ok enough about that, I’m still watching but I can’t wait to tell about this fun and classic spin on this Stylewe little black dress (LBD)!
PS, ok, one last thing about the Oscars. I love Jimmy Kimmel’s message about reaching out to one person you disagree with, who you like, and have a positive and considerate conversation with them. It’s a great idea to do one thing to take a positive step for ourselves, relationships and country!
Ok now for this awesome Stylewe TangJie Black Gathered Sheath 3/4 Sleeve Solid Elegant Mini Dress what I love about it is it’s super comfortable with long sleeves and soft fabric! It’s so nice to have a LBD to keep in your closet that is actually comfortable, right? I also love the gathering at the neck and the most interesting part that makes it different than any old LBD is this beautiful brooch! It’s subtle, yet eye catching, classic and classy, all in one!! What I love about brooches is that they remind me of my grandmother. She loved and wrote brooches often and I don’t see them much. The cool thing is that they are trending this winter (yet they are a classic look so keep them around)! I have a few of my grandmothers and love to add them to a scarf, shirt or dress to add some bling and class/ mix it up the look; which Styelwe has done that with this dress! It really adds a fun look to a LBD and it’s removable, which is an added bonus!
The fit & feel
The dress feels silky and nice (fabric – nylon, rayon, spandex) and it’s not too tight. I took my measurements before I ordered, I suggest doing that. Here I’m wearing a size 4 and it’s a perfect fit!
If you want a more conservative look with this dress, wear a shorter heel. If you’re wearing this dress out and want to make it a little sexier, I suggest wearing a higher heel (as I’ve styled here).

Here is your Bicoastal Beauty Tip of the week (this week is a style tip): If you’re going to wear this dress during the day, I suggest wearing a slip. This is something my mom, aunts and grandmother taught me! Find the link below, they are good to have on hand for dresses and skirts that may be a little see through or need an added liner.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Please leave a comment below, what would you like to see more of and what did you think of this post? Do you have any questions for me? Next week look out for:

- Winter to Spring Layers & Using that Blanket Scarf
Have a wonderful week, friends!!

LOVE that dress. Simple but classy. Can be dressed up or down. Great LBD! (and it looks great on you!)
Love the sleeves and broach! Looks like a dress you could take anywhere!
Great dress! Very versatile!
Oh my goodness what a cute dress & the broach adds extra pizazz! Love! ????
I love this dress, right now anything with sleeves is a great, especially for a Midwestern Lady like me.
This is a super look on you! Dress it up or down. Love the bling broach as well!
I love that they remind me of grandma also! Broche’s are making a comeback!
Yes! Jessica, they are totally “trending” right now 🙂 I think they will always be a classic piece!
Thank you! Exactly, you can wear it with flats to give it a more casual look or wear with different heels to dress it up more.
Alexis, you look good in everything! I do agree the sleeves are a bonus in the midwest right now! xoxo
LOVE the ALL BLACK…. that is my FAVE (besides yoga pants)…. and that brooch is so fun to dress up the look! I’d say the ponies are on their way…. lining up for this look. ; )
Happy Sunday Girlie!
Thank you so much, Cynthia! I agree, the brooch adds a classy classic look to this dress! Happy Spring!
