Little Black Dress
Believe it or not I’ve been searching for the perfect little black dress for quite some time now. I’ve been looking for one with classic styling that I could easily wear at the office or out for drinks. Even though I have a large collection of dresses it can still be a long process to find the right dress for your body type.
I literally just stumbled upon this one while shopping at Macy’s one day with friends. I have a theory that if there’s something I want to try on while shopping, I may as well try everything on, the good, the bad, and the ugly. As I was headed to the dressing room, here was this dress, the only one on the rack. Naturally, I picked it up, because at less than $100, who doesn’t want to try on a little black dress? When I came out of the dressing room and saw the looks on my friends faces, I knew it was meant to be.
The beauty of a black dress lies not only in its timeless look, but also in the ability to style it in so many ways. For this post, I opted for a more classic business look when styling it. You can’t go wrong with a little black dress and pearls! I snagged this multi-strand faux pearl necklace at a Banana Republic sale last winter and have been dying to wear them ever since. They make me feel a little bit like Audrey Hepburn! As you know, I love my cardigans and I might be a little predictable when it comes to wearing them, but a cardigan is such a classic element to your wardrobe! How do you style a little black dress?
P.S. I entered Splendid’s Coast to Coast in Color Contest. I’d love it if you could stop by and vote for my entry!
