I’m sure each of you has one or two little black dresses you can’t live without. Have you ever wondered what the appeal was though? I know I have. I mean, why does a black dress make a woman feel so sexy. Well first off, they’re slimming. I don’t know of one woman on this earth that doesn’t want to look a little smaller. Black is a color that’s good at hiding flaws and aids in helping us to look slimmer. Who doesn’t love that?! Another reason we love little black dresses is that they’re timeless. All of us fashionistas have seen the legendary photo of Audrey Hepburn in the little black dress she wore in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. To this day, that look is being mimicked by women all over the world. Let’s face it, little black dresses have proven themselves to be elegant, sophisticated, and sexy. They’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
The LBD I’m wearing today is by Helmut Lang. This dress has long sleeves and hits below the knee, but that doesn’t mean it’s not sexy. It hugs my curves in all the right places and has one sleeve that comes off the shoulder which makes it a total stand out! I absolutely love how soft the Velveteen fabric is too. I think what I like the most about little black dresses is how little they require when it comes to accessories. Simply throw on a pair of gold earrings and an optional gold necklace, and you’re done!

There are so many beautiful and classic little black dresses. I have to admit, I have quite a few of them in my closet but this one is by far my favorite!
Do any of you have any little black dresses you can’t live without?
Until next time…
