Finding the perfect LBD


Every woman needs a LBD (aka Little Black Dress) or two in her closet. It should be your go-to-piece for when you want to look and feel your best. The perfect LBD will make you feel like a million bucks and be versatile enough to be dressed up or dressed down. With the Little Black Dress Event coming up next week, I've been thinking about the importance of finding that special dress. This summer my favorite LBD was actually a piece I received from Stitch Fix. Not only was the dress adorable but it was comfortable too. The material doesn’t wrinkle so it is great for travelling. It washes easily. The length is perfect for my short frame. It has a cool cutout detail across the shoulders. It dresses up and down easily: worn with a denim jacket and studded black leather birkenstocks for a casual weekend and a black leather jacket and knee high boots for a gallery opening in NYC. Versatile and stylish.
