Here's Part II of a reader request to share with you all from my girl Ebony (click to check out Part 1).

So now we're focusing on a transitional outfit from dinner to partying. Basically, we'll just start with one piece, and switch up the look by adding a different shoe and accessories. Let's get started.

Outfit above:
Party dress, $70
L.A.M.B. stiletto heels, $260
Tory Burch ballet shoes, $235
Anya Hindmarch leather clutch, $550
ASOS foldover clutch, $81
Leopard belt, £20

This first set features a non-fussy dress that is easy to maneuver in. Because you will be doing so much, you may want to wear a fabric that is light and has drape to it. In addition, the drape is perfect for going out after dinner (masks a full stomach). Switching from flats to platforms and adding glam with a sequined clutch will take the dress to the next level.

Miss Selfridge ruffle dress, $60
McQ by Alexander McQueen ballet shoes, $326
Giuseppe zanotti sandals, $860
Alexander McQueen leather clutch, $356
Teardrop earrings, $74
Metal jewelry, $55

I love the colorblocking on the dress above. I also love the cinched waist and full skirt. The layers create movement and the simple color palette can be dressed up or down. For dinner, rock a pair of unique and stylish flats. Then, for clubbing, pull out the conversation starters...the monster wedge. You could also add statement jewelry for a more glam look.

Dorothy Perkins grey dress, $27
Jessica Simpson high heels, $90
Jessica simpson shoes, $90
Jessica McClintock sequin clutch, $66
Silver bangle, 85 SEK
Long silver earrings, $60
Star necklace, $7.87
Ambre Gris, €48
Marilyn Monroe wall art wall sayings: Home & Garden, $13

You know, I like gray and black because its classic and elegant. However, it can be a bit boring at times. So how do we add punch??? Well, I think a pair of brightly colored heels will do the trick. To off-setting the black and gray, add silver accessories and a sequined clutch.
