My wedding anniversary is coming soon, yay! More on that later…. but while my husband gets busy searching for a perfect place for a night out, I instinctively turn to the closet and look for that little black dress. There are so many reasons why the LBD will always be a favorite in my colorful closet. Let me share you my three main ones:
1. They are Timeless. One of the best ways to save money is to invest in timeless pieces because you won’t need to replace them anytime soon. Black dresses will never go out of style. Their versatility and appeal have firmly stood the test of time. Depending on the occasion, you can achieve several looks from classy to casual by dressing up or down your shoes, purse, and accessories. I let my shoes and jewelry do the talking.
2. “One is Never Overdressed or Underdressed with a Little Black Dress.” – Karl Lagerfeld – The LBD is effortless. I do not need to worry about mixing and matching colors. Whether I’m in a hurry trying to catch up with my girlfriends for lunch or a night out with my husband, I know I still look sleek and chic. Oh, and bonus points for it hides food stains which comes in handy if you’re like me, lol!
3. How about that slimming effect? Ahhh! This black dress does the trick. It definitely gets you looking a couple of sizes down. It flatters any body figure and creates the illusion of a smaller figure because the black color does not reflect light. So, it’s perfect for hiding some of those bumps that we want to remain hidden.
P.S. go Cubs for all you Chicago fans out there!
So if you don’t have one yet, maybe it’s time to grab one 😀 let’s see what kind of effect it does to you. One thing I’m sure of…..you my friend will absolutely look fabulous . ❤ xoxo
