Swarovski Crystal Little Black Dress DIY

DIY Sparkling Little Black Dress

“You’re never over-dressed or under-dressed in a little black dress.” Karl Lagerfeld knows a thing or two about style, so who are we to disagree? This glamorous LBD fits the description perfectly: with Swarovski crystals snaking down from neckline to hem, it’s flattering and endlessly versatile, taking you from desk to drinks, or dinner to dancing.

The Swarovski Crystal Beads and Sew-On Stones used to make this dress are just a few styles to choose from the virtual endless shapes, sizes and colors that you can use to create your own personalize style.
