Little Black Dress–Summer 3: For a Formal Event
Quote of the Day: “I was born to learn, to grow, to expand, to love, to create, to enjoy, to see the beauty in all things including myself…But I was NOT born to be perfect.” Anonymous
So the formal event is why the little black dress was created, right? Seriously what did women wear before the LBD? Of course, I had to add a little this and that to the mix. How boring to wear just the dress! These exact same dresses were styled for wearing on a casual day (here) and for a work day (here).
50’s LBD: Ok, Pam, I wore this shrug again for you! My mother made the bracelet for me…it’s a bunch of gold buttons on some elastic. You, too, could make one like it if you wanted!
60’s LBD: A long wrap is a perfect way to accessorize your dress in case the event happens to be chilly. Nancy just wrapped it around her arms for the pictures, but it could be worn more traditionally as well.

70’s LBD: Mom got this lace blazer in Japan and the earrings in Spain. We’ll just call this an international outfit!!
Are you a lover of the LBD? How many do you have?

I’ve decided I’m going to change LBD to Little Blue Dress (since that color looks so much better on me). These are all available in blue, don’t you just love them?
