Little Black Dress

Plus Size Style, Style

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!
