Fashion magazines, stylists and bloggers all tout that every girl needs to own a LBD. Or, little black dress. Based on the versatile personal styles of girls everywhere, the only clothing item that I think every girl needs to own is underwear. But for the girly girls among us, a little black dress is definitely a good item to have in your closet.
A classic black dress works as a neutral base for the rest of your outfit. You can dress it up or down, and make it your own by pairing it with accessories that fit your style. Finding one that works for your body shape, one that makes you look and feel darn good every time you put it on, makes it a true, LBD. From there it’s up to you to add your own flair.
I scored this BCBG Max Azria dress at a garage sale for $2. Yes, a garage sale. (It was a lucky fashion day.) So far, I’ve worn it out for drinks and recently to a summer wedding.
[I’m all about girly dresses and this one has an added layer underneath the skirt that gives it a fun little poof. I also love the length of this dress. It hits just slightly below the knee, which makes it perfect for more formal occasions.]
[I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear these probably-impractical-but too-cute-to-pass-up sunshine yellow heels.]
