My Little Black Dress

Classic Black Cocktail Dress

With a flirty ruffle neckline, forgiving shape, and just-above-the-knee length, this simple number hits all the right style notes to make it my perfect little black dress. You know that I love a good white dress (or two), but sometimes I'm just more comfortable in black.

I love that the straps are thick enough that I can wear a normal bra and the fabric is whatever the word for "opposite of clingy" is.... skimming perhaps? Anyway, that means I can eat an extra hor d'oeuvre or five without feeling like I've gotta suck it in, and if your friends cook as well as mine do, that's a very important factor when choosing a party dress ;) I added a wide belt to define my waistline and accessorized with bright pops of pink and purple to bring some colour to my outfit.

Holiday party season is in full swing and this LBD is my go-to dress when I want to feel sexy and comfortable. That being said, a girl doesn't need to have just one perfect cocktail dress, does she? Check back tomorrow for another style roundup of classic cocktail dresses perfect for the holiday season.

  12. I love this look, and that you weren't afraid to incorporate some stunning bold colors in your bag and shoes. There is never enough of anything when it comes to clothing, ha!

    1. Agreed!! As long as my closet and bank account are big enough I'm always tempted to spend more. Ahh... consumerism.
