Fresh Picks to Follow: LBD

Hi everyone - I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  I just got back into town late tonight and I didn’t have time to write my Friday Fresh Picks to Follow.  I’ve been pretty good about posting this weekly feature, but lately I’ve been a little distracted.  My aunt passed away and we recently had a beautiful memorial service in honor of her life and legacy.  She was truly an amazing, inspirational woman and I’m so happy that she was in my life.

When I thought about putting together this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, I instantly thought about the little black dress.  I realized that I have a handful of black dresses, but only one that was appropriate for the memorial service.   So I wanted to focus this week’s feature on the LBD.  Since Chanel introduced the "little black dress" in 1926, it has become a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. The Chanel little black dress became a symbol of chic and sophisticated simplicity. Something that I noticed is that the LBD should not be trendy, but timeless.  In my opinion, the perfect LBD should have plain fabric and clean lines and it should look simple yet elegant.  To change the look from daytime to night, pair the dress with bold jewelry, a blazer, colorful pumps or a scarf.  Here are my top 10 LBD’s for this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow.  Do you have a favorite little black dress?  Do you have a dress that is work or church appropriate?  Let me know.

  1. Ooh, I would love to invest in a Black Halo Jackie O dress, but I have a gal pal with the dress and it is really made to really fit your form, which makes me totally self-conscious about it! But oh so lovely ...
