Put aside the cocktail/ lacy/ sexy /short / backless/ deep neck…little black dress you’ve probably grown tired of reading about. Today, let’s talk about the “other” LBD. The more-conservative-less-glamorous cousin of the evening dress.
the one item you feel one hundred percent yourself in,
the one you pick out after you’ve tried 23 other dresses and nothing else seems to work,
the one you wear on a first date, looking confident while not showing too much skin,
the one you put on for a girls night out, not those crazy nights, but an intimate one where you laugh over unlimited supply of wine,
the one you wear to meet his parents for the first time, with your favorite strand of pearls,
the one you feel elegant in, worn with expensive shoes and bright red lipstick, on the night he takes you to see the ballet,
and let’s be honest,
it’s the one you’ll always feel skinny in, not only because it’s black from top to toe, but like an old friend, is always forgiving.
Go pull out your little black dress from the back of the closet, dust it off, put it on, look in the mirror, and remember that this is the dress you’ll forever feel beautiful in.
