..My LBWD


The deets:  J.Crew dress; Banana Republic necklace (old); Ivanka Trump heels; Revlon "Orange Flip" lipstick.

I have recently found that having a go-to LBWD (little black work dress) is just as important as having an LBD in your closet.  Whenever I feel like a swamp creature that woke up on the wrong side of the bed, start doing the "I have nothing to wear" dance, and I just don't have an one ounce of energy to spend on putting something together that is socially acceptable, I can always count on the LBWD to make me feel like a functional member of society again.  It's plain and simple and really easy to style with accessories (even I can do it). It's like my polished-person costume.

  2. I don't actually have a LBD for work. I think it is really needed for those days when you just can't bear to get dressed. I love yours!

  7. Too funny the "I have nothing to wear dance"' I do that dance quite a bit! Can't go wrong with a good black dress I'd say.

  22. It's beautiful...and you're definitely right about having a little black dress...it's just one of those things that EVERY closet should have.

  23. The thing I love about a simple black dress is that you can wear it all the time and nobody notices. It looks completely different when you pair it with different accessories.

  24. Wow, the silhouette of this LBD is perfect!!
