Ahhhh…the little black dress (LBD). The simple solution to the “I don’t know what to wear to this” problem every woman experiences. With the LBD, you absolutely cannot go wrong.  It’s classic, it’s timeless, it’s elegant, it’s sexy and is a must-have in every woman’s closet.  It is the essential piece that we can put on several years after buying and will still look just as modern and sophisticated as the we did the day we bought it.  The good thing is no one will even know how old it is.  Another great thing about the LBD is that it comes in so many styles.  For the modest, there are full coverage LBDs and for the daring, there are ones that leave little to the imagination and then there are LBDs that fall somewhere in between.  Depending upon whom you ask, this one falls somewhere in between. I tend to think that I play it safe(ly).

This off-the-shoulder (you’re not surprised by the OTS, right?) tie-sleeved LBD was a recent purchase that I know I will have for years to come.  I love it because it is a transitional piece that can be worn during the day or at night.  Adding to the list of great things about the LBD is its versatility which can go from ultra glam to simple and chic depending on how you accessorize. I opted for a day-wear look giving off cool and chic, but also elegant vibes, in a pair of heeled sandals, some tortoise jewelry and a structured straw bag.  A look that is perfect for Sunday brunch maybe even modern day Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Today’s pick: a black cotton, OTS LBD with tie sleeves, a pair of block heel sandals and a structured straw bag with tortoise and gold accessories.
