Hope everyone has had a great week! It’s a beautiful day here in the Carolina’s and it’s been a great week. My newest grand-daughter was one month old yesterday and I found out I was a finalist in the Shorty awards. YAY! And thank you for everyone’s support. As the underdog, would not have made it without your help. Thank you.

My go to much of the time is a little black dress for various occasions. If you look at my Instagram, you will see that I wear a lot of black year-round A little black dress is what I choose when I don’t know what to wear. They can easily be dressed up or down depending on your accessories and rarely is black a bad color for anyone.

The "little black dress" is considered essential to a complete wardrobe by many women. I’ve heard that it is a "rule of fashion" that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress. So as we head into the spring, I put together some of my favorites. Most of these are pretty simple allowing for accessories of your choosing. I wear black pumps year round but as we get closer to spring and summer I might suggest a kitten heel sandal and definitely a chic handbag and fun earrings. In fact, watch for an upcoming post on accessorizing a LBD.

And remember, nothing says a little black dress has to be skimpy. The “little” refers to the shorter style and not a long evening gown.

Do you have a favorite you wear on repeat? The one I am wearing is a beautifully cut, shift dress by Lafeyette 148 with pockets. I love any dress that offers pockets. I found this at Paul Simon Woman in Charlotte. Knowing that everyone has different tastes and budgets, I’ve provided shopping links for several choices below.

Are you looking for a special LBD? If so, what’s the occasion. Me? I just keep adding them to my closet to give myself many choices.

As always, my goal is to share chic ageless style and endless fun, from a sincerely silver perspective.  Including fashion, beauty, and relevant lifestyle information as we share this ageless journey together! 

XOXO
