'Tis the season for Little Black Dresses! The seasons are changing and it's always a good idea to have a few little black dresses in your closet. I tend to rotate between a few. This LBD is my latest acquisition! It's fitted, scalloped, and cocktail length: everything I love in a LBD. This dress is your 'go-to' day-to-night dress; it's work appropriate and also fun and sexy to wear out at night. I decided to look at this dress from two perspectives: one with a belt and the other without. The dress sans a belt is more sleek and classic. (This is always an unfailing look.) The dress with the belt is a little bit country. I really like them both ways. They each serve a purpose and make it so the LBD can be worn in endless ways.
Side note: the breaking news of Oscar de la Renta's passing is certainly saddening and heartbreaking for the fashion world. I had the chance to intern at Oscar de la Renta's design house and watch him perfect a resort collection (at the helm from start to finish). I feel so lucky to have had an experience like that. This career is certainly full of exciting opportunities and that one leaves an indelible mark in my mind. RIP ODLR.
