Dress, Boohoo. (Similar here, more liked below.) Shoes, c/o Forever 21. (Similar here, and here.) Bag, Henri Bendel. (Similar here.)
Similar to the ascription by Bette Midler, “Give a girl the correct footwear and she can conquer the world.” (Which is more often than not misattributed to Marilyn Monroe, but that’s a whole other blog post) put me in the right LBD and I’m ready to, as they say, slay. And by the grace of God, slay again.
A few weeks ago, when I received this dress in the mail at work, my co-worker Alexa asked me, “How many black dresses do you need?”
Truth be told, I need a lot of them.
Have an occasion? There’s an LBD for that. As we know life is made of many occasions, hence I need many little black dresses.
So why do I like them so much? Well, black dresses are a bit of an sartorial anomaly, in the sense that they can either be perfectly understated or complete showstoppers.
Today we’re talking about the latter. Lace ones, in particular, that are perfect for summertime.
I scoured the internet and chose my 5 favorites. Enjoy!
- This off the shoulder sundress from Boohoo.
- This strappy body con from ASTR The Label.
- This zip up plus size number from City Chic.
- This breezy high low dress from Free People.
- This curve accentuating mermaid shape from Forever 21 Plus.
