When Bright Young Things (BYT), the sustainable fashion label that launched with one little black dress last month, asked if I would don their LBD for a Style Challenge I had to muster every ounce of will power to not pound on my keyboard in my reply of "YES!"

Among eight of "New York's most stylish fashion bloggers" and in good company with model Summer Rayne Oakes, and my friends at Ecouterre and Goodlifer, I styled two looks culled entirely from Cobblestones Vintage, a second hand shop in the East Village, NYC. Click through for photos, and a video of me on the prowl for the ultimate LBD accessories -- there may even be an BYT LBD in it for you, too--that is if you vote for your favorite!
