The Un-Boring Little Black Dress

February 4, 2019

Oh little black dress, how many ways do I love thee? Are all little black dresses created equal? Can you ever have too many little black dresses? Is it possible to have so many variations of what is essentially the same thing? Can I answer any more questions with a question? Ok I’ll stop now, but that is a fun game if you ever have the urge to play.

First, why do I love the little black dress? They come in all forms, fabrics and silhouettes making them the most obvious closet staple. But sometimes we come across one that stands out amongst the pack. More “mwah” instead of “meh” if you know what I mean? Maybe it’s the cut, a special detail, a ruffle, or a cinch or an undescribable it-factor that make you think “OMG it’s just so good!” The best part of any LBD is that you can add your personality with the accessories because everything (yes even navy) goes with black.

With Valentine’s Day on the docket or just a general craving for happy bright colors in the dead of winter, I’ve been gravitating towards pink. I had one of those “Omg that’s so good” moments when I saw this dress. That tortoise buckle, the drape, the price – win, win, win! I accessorized with some gold jewelry and pops of pink. And to prove that navy and black do work together (I can’t just say it without showing you), I threw on my “fancy” navy puffer and this look is date night ready!

    Reading your blog always lifts my spirits. You’re so positive and upbeat and funny. I always end up with a big smile as I read through…. plus the fashion is To. Die. For. Today, in particular, I love how you paired the navy puffer coat with the dress..totally takes the outfit up another notch, and I never would have thought of putting those pieces together on my own. You’re just so fabulous.
