Hi everyone! Happy Holidays! Tired of Christmas Shopping yet? I am! I keep in mind, however, that the Holiday season is the season of giving and the season to practice your bargain hunting skills. This posting is my last before Christmas and contrary to the festive colors around this holiday, my outfit stuck to simply black and gray.
This might be my most comfortable and effortless dressed-up outfit. It is truly a staple to have the famous "LBD" in your closet. Infact, I believe that every woman should have at least two or three of these LBDs in their closet. It is such a great canvas piece. I say canvas because the simplicity of it, the easiness and the fact that it is a neutral gives you a blank slate. There so many ways you can dress them up or down.
Let's proceed to the three types of LBDs I think a woman should have.
LBD #1: Casual Cotton Black Dress-that is illustrated in this posting. A cotton LBD is something that you can wear as a layering piece during the colder seasons or something you can wear in a casual party, on a shopping trip with your flats or flipflops, on a lunch date with a cross-body bag and leather jacket and a good pair of boots maybe...you see, LBDs are not strictly for evening anymore. The stretch of the cotton, the casual fabric and a simple fit is great for an occassion where you don't want to have as much constrictions.
LBD #2: Sexy Evening Black Dress- this is you LBD to impress! Something fitted to the body, a dress that will make you look so mysteriously sexy that you just cannot go wrong with it. This could be your go-to dress, the dress you wear on a date, the dress you wear on a night out.
LBD #3: The Classic-yes, every woman MUST have a classic, clean line black dress. This is the LBD you wear under a blazer for a meeting at the office, the LBD you wear on a company party, the LBD you wear on a dinner night with your boyfriend's family, the dress you wear with black pumps and pearls for that Jackie O look.
Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you all have a great holiday and once again, thank you so much for reading!
