I was so honored when the lovely Valerie Elizabeth, one of my fellow contestants in the America's Most Stylish Blogger contest, contacted me about participating in her Society Stylist "Little Black Dress Experiment" Tours America project. 31 bloggers across the nation were asked to style the same, classic little black dress from Ann Taylor, and you can check out the inspiring results here, including my own entry as the 21st blogger:

I'm Tiffany Tse from StyleSophisticate.net at one of my favorite buildings in the world - the soaring Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. As an entertainment reporter, I rarely have to dress formally for work, so Ann Taylor's little black dress is definitely one of the few professional outfits in my closet! That's why I wanted to inject this classic LBD with a bit of my colorful and whimsical sense of style, starting by layering a sunshine yellow jacket over it. This fall, I'm all about chunky, standout accessories, like a beautiful black and gold watch from one of our sponsors, Michele, and a pair of geek chic classes. Whether I'm working on the red carpet or meeting friends for after work drinks, I know this outfit will keep me looking polished and sophisticated without losing my sense of youthful fun!


Blogger Bio:
Tiffany Tse is a San Diego native with two great passions - writing and fashion. After graduating with degrees in English and Literary Journalism, she taught English in Japan for one year, then returned to California to pursue a writing career. She currently resides in Los Angeles, where she works as a staff writer and fashion editor for two major tween/teen publications, Tiger Beat and BOP magazines. She also serves as the curator of her personal style blog, StyleSophisticate.net, which is well-known for Tiffany's jumping shots. Her blog was a finalist in the America's Most Stylish Blogger competition and was featured in the Los Angeles Times, FabSugar.com, Glendale News-Press and more. Tiffany spends her weekends chasing after food trucks and scouring her city for style inspiration. You'll most likely find her at the Venice Beach boardwalk at sunset, sporting vibrant purple oxfords and giant earrings with a dripping ice cream cone in hand.

Hehe, I love your blogger bio. And holy shizz, a reporter for Bop and Teen Beat!?! THAT must be a cool job--and you must know soooo much about Justin Bieber.

Also love how you styled this dress with the yellow jacker!
