Finding the One
Updated: Jan 22, 2018
The perfect LBD is out there. And it's no longer constrained to just date night.
I found the one. The LBD of my dreams--it's as verstile as I am, and it has the perfect fabric for every season. My LBD is comfy, but snug to dress up when I don't feel like putting in much work. It is the dress I can take from day to night, and even to brunch.
Little Black Dresses are not made to only see the limelight at the clubs or soley the fine wines on a night out. LBDs are ready for their 9-5 and everything in between.
Finding staple clothes that can work with your schedule and be worn for several occasions is key in having a closet of variety.
First I took my LBD, and I paired it with a pencil skirt from Loft. Nobody has to know it is a dress, but it defintely makes a sleek business top. The mock turtleneck keeps it office-friendly, but the pairing keeps me chic. Over the pair, I wore a leather jacket--who says you can't wear leather into the office? I'm a hard worker, but my chic outfit makes it look easy.
Slip the skirt off, and slide a fur vest over the leather jacket--I'm ready for happy hour and drinks. I'm a fan of alll back, and with the below-freezing weather I've had, tights don't hurt anyone.
I can take this LBD to brunch by folding the top under itself and adding a pair of jeans. It looks like a sleek top and body-hugging jeans. Less is more, and after a night out, I like the ease of this look.
This LBD is sweater material, form-fitting with a mock turtle neck and sleeveless. Purchased at Forever 21 for $12.99.
